Are We Renting?

Lake Union Conditions

Friday 4/12: No SUP Rentals due to wind. Give us a call for kayak rental status before coming down

*Based on the Weather Forecast

If sustained winds are 10mph or greater, we may stop renting depending on what we are seeing on the lake. Paddleboard rentals are stopped first, followed by single kayaks, and finally double and triple kayaks. 

We reserve the right to stop renting if conditions on the lake are not suitable for beginners at our discretion.

If the weather looks iffy it's best to call ahead to see if we are renting.

  • Rental hours start when we open. The last reservation of the day is 2 hours before close. Last call is 90 minutes before close, or sunset, whichever is earlier. In order to rent, your entire party needs to be at our location to check in by last call.

  • We shut down rentals if it's windy (sustained winds of 12mph or more, gusts of 20mph or more). For SUPs we may stop renting if the forecast calls for sustained winds over 10mph. It's not foolproof, but if there is a small craft advisory issued for the Seattle area it is likely we won't be renting.

  • We will close for rentals if there is lightning (minimum 30 minute wait period).

  • We close for rentals for cold temps (below 40° for most of the day).
