From an easy paddle through Seattle's Washington Park Arboretum to an overnight trip to Clark Island and so many other routes varying in length and difficulty, these adventures will keep you busy exploring the Evergreen State by water for the foreseeable future.

Working with Outdoor Project Contributors Matthew Williams in Seattle, Shane Kucera out of Portland, and Tyler Yates, now living in Anchorage, we took the TRAK Seeker ST 16 out on the open waters and put it to the test while documenting the best sea kayaking Washington has to offer. In addition, we developed custom Field Guides + Maps for each adventure so you can take to the water prepared and with ease.
