Seattle Adventure Sports will be using rafted canoes for tours.
Lake Sammamish is over seven miles long and offers a wide variety of scenery. For those seeking a change of pace from the city, paddling along the shore of Lake Sammamish State Park offers an opportunity to get close to nature and get a glimpse of the historic homeland of the Snoqualmie Tribe. The mouth of the Issaquah Creek is one of the biggest heronry’s in the state! If you keep your eyes directed up into the big trees, there’s a good chance of seeing Bald Eagles and Great Blue Herons
Many of the natural areas have recently been restored through the longtime Adopt-a-Park Agreement with the Mountain to Sound Greenway Trust. Your guide will lead you along the shore where Greenway Volunteers have spent countless hours restoring neglected shoreline. Acres of invasive plants were removed and replaced with healthy native plants.
While you are heading out on your tour or returning you won’t be able to miss the panoramic view of Issaquah Alps, Sqauk, Cougar and Tiger Mountains. There is coal mining history, hiking and biking trails abound here.
