Visiting Seattle...

Hi y'all,
I'm going to be visiting Seattle for my daughter's 25th birthday and would like to paddle some of the nearby rivers. I am experienced on class II-III rivers. I am planning on bringing all of my kayaking gear except for a boat,paddle, and spray skirt. What I am interested in knowing is:
1. Where can I rent a whitewater boat from?
2. Where can I hook up with local paddlers or river guide service to take me onto a river. AND
3. Should I bring something lighter than a drysuit to paddle in.

Thanks,
Pedro

This primarily a Colorado forum, try Professor Paddle for the Washington and Oregon forum.

Hey Pedro- I can say that right now the drysuit would be total overkill. You'd be roasting. Water is starting to run low in most places. For II to III runs in a kayak there's a few choices- just depends on how far from Seattle proper you want to drive.

Do check out Professor Paddle- they've got good info on runs.
