Learn to kayak for $22! Gear, guide and instruction included!

There are many places to buy kayaks. Visit the others first and then come to Gig Harbor Kayak Center. You'll experience the difference from the moment you walk into our on-the-water shop. We don't want to be the biggest kayak shop….just the best.

The Gig Harbor Kayak Center began eight years ago as a small touring outfit with a fleet of a mere seven kayaks. With just one guide, no retail sales and no shop, we quickly found that the Northwest's interest in sea kayaking was growing faster than ever, and we rushed to accommodate that interest. Since those early days we've relocated indoors and continue to provide professional tours and instruction, as well as sales in quality equipment and kayaks.

We specialize in expedition kayaks, including Valley Canoe Products, Klepper folding kayaks, and Current Designs. As a family run outfit in the small town of Gig Harbor, we also pride ourselves on providing personal instruction and service. The goal of our friendly staff at the Gig Harbor Kayak Center is to get people just as excited about sea kayaking as we are.


Every staff member at the Gig Harbor Kayak Center lives and breathes kayaking. As professional "lifestyle maintenence technicians" it is our mission to provide our customers with the best instruction, information, and service out there. The protected bay of Gig Harbor is a beautiful place to begin or continue your kayaking adventures. We hope you will join us on the water!
