Kaf Adventures creates and fosters growth of leaders through outdoor technical skills progression and custom built outdoor experiences that explore the wilderness and other cultures. Kaf, pronounced like cough, is an old mystical Hebrew word meaning ‘the power to actualize potential.’ The Hebrew legend goes that Kaf is a sacred mythological mountain that surrounds the world and bounds the horizon. This mountain rests upon the emerald stone of sakhrat, which emanates miraculous power. Together, their reflection makes the sky blue. For more information check out

Soundkeeper’s mission is to protect and preserve the waters of Puget Sound. To accomplish its mission, Soundkeeper actively monitors Puget Sound through kayak patrols and uses the Soundkeeper patrol boat on a weekly basis enlisting a network of trained volunteers to detect and report pollution. As a major environmental stakeholder, Soundkeeper actively engages government agencies and businesses working to regulate pollution discharges from sewage treatment plants, industrial facilities, construction sites, municipalities and others. Soundkeeper actively enforces the Clean Water Act of 1972, using the power granted to citizens to sue under provisions of the Act, to stop polluters in their tracks and bring egregious polluters into compliance with the law.

Legislation created the boating program in 1983 and made Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission responsible for administering the program. The boating program ensures boating laws and regulations are enforced on all of Washington's waterways, provides recreational boating safety education and information as well as conveniently located boater septic pump-out facilities. The State Parks Boating Program encourages you to have fun as you head out on the water and be smart. There's a lot to learn and we're here to help you!
