Canoeing in Washington?

My friends and I will be staying in North Bend, Washington at the end of July and we’d like to do some canoeing in the area. I’m looking for an outfit that rents canoes and provides shuttle transportation from point A to point B along a river. I’m not familiar with the geography of the area, but I suppose it would be along either the Snoqualmie or Tolt rivers? I’ve contacted the Chamber of Commerce in North Bend, and the King County visitors center, but they weren’t very much help. Some of the phone numbers I tried for businesses were disconnected. I’m not sure anyone on this message board can provide me with direction, but I figured it couldn’t hurt to ask. Thanks.

here are a few rental places
North bend is known for its easy access to whitewater.

These guys are in Redmond, Wa and rent canoes but it’s on lake washington not a river.

issaquah paddle sports rents on Lake Sammamish.

NWOC rents kayaks in Seattle on lake union and does whitewater classes. THey may be able to help you.

Thanks for the tips. I’ll try contacting those sites.


The route is signing in for a group run. Washington and Oregon are brimful of evil people. California threw them out. Loaning boats is suicidal.

The Tieton is a cold water slalom out of a dam…if there’s water.

The Methow is a beauty.
