Alki Kayak Tours: Award tonight, Mountain to Sound store soon

(September photo by Auburn, during an Alki Kayak Tours trip)
Tonight at City Hall downtown, Alki Kayak Tours will be honored as one of the Mayor’s Small Business Award recipients (originally reported here). And that’s not the only big news for the West Seattle-based company – you might recall proprietor Greg Whittaker‘s search for a storefront – seems they’ve found one – he writes:

… We will be opening Mountain to Sound Outfitters at 3602 SW Alaska St. [map] We will offer Ski retail/rental/service, Paddlesports, Skates, and Vehicle Rack Outfitting. The licensing and setup is under way, but we will plan on a Thanksgiving week opening. We will also be in attendance at the Seattle Ski Fever and Snowboard Show.

Back to the award, Whittaker says, “It is an honor to be able to represent the interests of sustainable tourism in West Seattle.” Also among the winners (all listed here along with ticket info for tonight’s reception/ceremony) is Cupcake Royale, which has a shop in The Junction.

    Congratulations! I can’t wait for the new store! Will they continue to operate on Alki as well?

    Yep, we will continue to offer rentals/tours/demos at Seacrest Marina.
    Thanks for all the community support!
