Located on protected Liberty Bay in historic downtown Poulsbo, our rental dock provides easy access for all paddler levels. You can rent kayaks and standup paddleboards, as well as get basic instruction from our fun, knowledgeable staff. On the water, you'll likely be visited by seals and you may see bald eagles, great blue herons and other wildlife.

Paddle to Keyport for lunch at the Whiskey Creek Steakhouse, visit Fish Park for a picnic or just relax for an hour or two on this pleasant, protected bay. After paddling or SUPing, you have a wide selection of great choices: restaurants, the world famous Sluy's Bakery, locally made chocolate or coffee shops with icecream.
