There are some states that lend themselves to kayaking while others do not. Kayaking in Washington State will quickly lead you to conclude Washington is one of the top states for a paddle.

The West Coast of the United States is a great place to take your family's next vacation. The many different climates, scenery and outdoor spots to see make this area of the country a good choice for a trip that will be memorable and enjoyable. One state to make sure to see on your trip to the west coast is Washington - and an activity you should be sure to do while here is kayaking. Kayaking in Washington state can be perfect for the whole family.

Kayaking is a great water sport for those who want a little adventure on their next vacation. A kayak is a type of small watercraft that is human-powered, meaning the passengers must paddle the boat in order to get to their destination, instead of just relying on a motor or wind power. Kayaks are typically covered boats with a canoe-like shape, that also include a spray skirt that covers the passengers (paddlers) sitting in the cockpit. A kayak can accommodate between one and three paddlers at a time.

Washington is a state that's perfect for both beginners and experts to enjoy kayaking. The beautiful inlet waters of Puget Sound offer a protected and tranquil area for people who want to try the more challenging sport of sea kayaking. San Juan Island, located near Seattle, Washington, are a perfect place to sea kayak, and this place even offers the opportunity to see orca whales while paddling! MSNBC (news network) even rated kayaking by San Juan Island one of the top ten adventures in the United States.

San Juan Safaris offers some of the most highly rated kayaking in Washington state, with three hour sea kayaking tours and three hour family kayaking tours available to take part in. Take your trip during spring, summer or fall to make sure that you'll see the beautiful orca whales cresting in the ocean while you're paddling your kayak on your tour. You can also rent a kayak from San Juan Safaris, and while on San Juan Island, enjoy some of the hiking and other outdoor activities that are available.

Whether you're with the family or on your own, kayaking in Washington State is a great trip for those who are looking for a different sort of outdoor vacation. Sea kayaking, with its adventurous spirit as well as relaxing scenery, makes a good trip for anyone looking to try something new - and you'll be sure to want to return again and again.
