Boating In Leschi

Moorage at the Leschi Marina

Leschi has an active marina for year round moorage of almost 200 boats. For information about using the facility or mooring your own boat there, see the Seattle Parks and Recreation site for Leschi north moorage.

Motor Boats & Jet Skis

Lake Washington is perfect for motor boating and water skiing.

There are no motor boat launches within the borders of Leschi but you don't have to go very far to find one.

The nearest power boat launch is by the Mt. Baker Rowing Center, Lake Washington Blvd and S. Charlestown St. about three miles south of Leschi.

Canoes, Kayaks & Paddle Boards

The waterfront along the lake provides many places you can put your kayak or canoe into the water. If you are comfortable getting into your boat from a dock, there are two docks that work pretty well. If you need a gradual slope of the beach instead there are a few specific places that are safe and easy to use.

Note: You are not allowed to put your boat in the water within 25 yards of a swimming area. If you try to, you may get stopped by a life guard.
