Staying Safe 

We want you to have a fun and safe time on the water

Please look over our rules

Customer Guidelines

While you are at Lake Samammish State Park renting from IPS:

Checking in:

  • Show up 10 minutes before your rental reservation. This will give us time to fix any complications that might arise during check-in.

  • If you need to fill out a liability form at the concession, please bring a pen. If you don't have one, we provide disinfected pens

While out on the water:

  • Always keep your life jacket on, even if you are only a few feet from shore

Staying safe in nice weather:

  • Wear sunscreen/sunblock of at least SPF 30 out on the water.

  • Wear weather appropriate clothing (sun shirts, baseball caps, wide brim hats, etc.) so that you don't overheat. If you have sunglasses and are worried about them falling over board, we sell floating sunglass straps

  • Bring water for everyone that is using our craft. It can get hot on the water!

Issaquah Paddle Sports!


We have sizes to fit everyone from infants all the way to XXXL. All jackets are disinfected after every use, ensuring you'll use a clean life jacket.

Before you go on the water check your life jacket to make sure that it is securely fastened. When the jacket is properly fitted you should not be able to slide it around on your torso, if it moves when pulled please re-adjust the PFD. 

If you bring your own life jacket, you may use it.

Paddlers Please Stay In Green Zone !

Life Jackets: Wear Them!

If you check your life jackets you will see that each one has a whistle attached. This whistle is to only be used during emergencies when you or someone else requires immediate assistance.  Below are examples of when it is okay to use the whistle. As mentioned above, all life vests are disinfected after each use before being given to customers

Times when you should use your whistle:

  •  If you are in the water and unable to re-enter your watercraft

  •  If you need assistance in returning to shore 

  •  Any potentially dangerous situation

Times when you should not use your whistle:

  •  You want to show your parents how loud you can be

  •  You want to know how much time you have left

  •  Any time when there is not an emergency
