We’ve spent thousands of joyous hours exploring our local waterways on SUPs and in Kayaks, so we want to contribute to keeping them trash free. Every year, staff at Alki Kayak Tours work with Puget SoundKeeper and the Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition to provide guides and kayaks for volunteers at the Duwamish River Cleanup. If you’re interested in getting involved with a Cleanup, here are our recommendations for locations stretching from West Seattle to the Olympic Peninsula.
