Guided Kayak Trips & Tours: Self-Catered

A self-catered guided kayak rental is a great way to save money compared to a fully-catered kayak tour in the south Puget sound. If you are an experienced camper but don’t have the skills to rent a kayak for exploring on your own, we can supply an expert kayak guide along with a kayak rental package. Our guided kayak rental adventures are perfect for someone who already has camping equipment, enjoys the process of planning a camping trip, has skill at preparing their own meals in the field, and wants to stay within a tighter budget during their vacation.

Guided kayak rentals are accompanied by a Pacific Northwest Kayak Adventures kayak guide. By including a kayak guide with your rental package, you can expand your already existing skills, receive valuable counsel during decision making, and obtain crucial advice on local weather and wildlife movements. Our guides are in tune with the locations of our local area. They also know the most scenic kayaking tour routes and can point you to the best campsites.

Our guided kayak rental fees include the tandem and solo boats, plus all related kayaking gear, and your guide. Your rental kayak guide will come equipped with local navigation chart and other navigation aids, and lots of specialized knowledge. As the guided rental kayak program is self-catered, you will need to do your share of all the ordinary camp chores.

Please be prepared to provide your own:

  • camping and cooking gear
  • meals
  • sleeping bags
  • tents, etc.

In case you have some gaps in your personal gear closet, we do have some of this camping gear available to rent and it can be added to your package. Call or email us for availability of these additional items if needed.
