Blake Island Kayak Excursions

July & August (friday - sunday)

So close to the hustle and bustle of the big city but a world apart... Blake Island is in our opinion, the most unique Washington State Park with miles of trails to walk, beaches to comb and coastline to paddle. Vashon Adventures is thrilled to join Washington State Parks and Argosy Cruises with the addition of guided kayak excursions and hourly paddling during the summer.

Argosy Cruises leaves Pier 54 on the Seattle Waterfront, bringing guests to Blake Island's Tillicum Village. The cruise offers spectacular views of Elliott Bay and all the majesty of the Puget Sound. Your adventure can be customized with box lunches, guided kayak excursions and overnight camping options.  

Got boat? Make your reservation to join our guided tour while you are moored at Blake or paddle by the hour to check out the water from a different vantage point.
