Hourly Kayak Rentals

We have excellent kayaks for all ages and experience levels. We rent our kayaks year round. Our sheltered waterways have a 7-knot speed limit, making Moss Bay rentals a highly enjoyable and safe place to have fun on the water. Navigate the local waterways to the University of Washington, the Ballard Locks, through local houseboat communities, or to our beautiful arboretum. All rentals are 1st come 1st serve basis.

What to bring for hourly rentals

  • Valid Photo ID (drivers license, military ID or passport)
  • Weather Appropriate Clothing
  • Water bottle
  • Sunscreen

Who can participate?

We have boats to accommodate most body shapes and sizes, so this is an activity for all! Although everyone has the ability to rent boats from Moss Bay – for safety reasons, our staff reserves the right to refuse equipment rentals to any person at any time. Also, youth under 18 cannot take out boats unless they are accompanied by an parent/legal guardian (a friend that is 18 does not count). Hourly rentals require completion of our registration form, a current driver’s license or passport, and a signature on our waiver and release form.
