We recently spent some time in Port Ludlow, Washington. We've sailed there in the past (here), kayaked (here), and even stayed at the inn (review here). An easy paddling trip is exploring Ludlow Bay - kayaks can be launched from the marina and parking is free. Need to rent kayaks? The Marina can hook you up!

A couple months ago while taking a friend's new kayak for a test-spin, we paddled upon Schooner Zodiac. She was at port near Seattle's Center for Wooden Boats on Lake Union. I've seen her around the Puget Sound in the past - she is gorgeous.
It was also my first time trying out the new-ish kayak put-in on the southwest side of the Lake. There was parking nearby (and a Starbucks:). It sure beats the rogue kayak put-ins that I was used to on this side of Lake Union - "stop that man with the inflatable kayak!". While I don't recommend this part of the lake for rookies, it's fun in a planes landing close-powerboats-tallships-craziness kinda way. It has great water views of downtown.
