World-class Kayaking Tours and Instruction


Join us for tours and instruction on the Lower Columbia River and Oregon/Washington coast. Our owner-guides live here and have in-depth knowledge and love for the area.

We have a full calendar of events from beginner half day tours to surf and coastal journeys. Check out our calendar!

Check out the Oregon Public Broadcasting/Oregon Field Guide's recent video with Andrew and Kyleen taking them out for a spin in our neck 'o the woods:

We also sell kayaking gear and equipment, including kayaks.

In order to protect our loved ones, friends, neighbors, and customers, the start of our 2020 season is delayed until June 1st. In January, our signups for our 2020 programs were the best they have ever been, and we were looking forward to the busiest season in our history. Now it is conceivable that we may not have a 2020 season at all, but we aren't giving up! Many have asked why we can't just take smaller groups, or even individuals, out kayaking. We can paddle six feet apart, right? The answer is yes and no. We can paddle six feet apart, but we can't be six feet away when helping someone who has capsized get back into their kayak, or assist with equipment adjustments. And, right now, we need to do everything we can to take care of each other by keeping our distance. Others have asked how they can help us. Soon we will launch our new website, complete with a store where you can shop for kayaking gear, equipment, apparel, and gift certificates from CRK, as well as register for our programs. Look for our announcement. In the meantime, if you are looking for kayaks, gear, etc., call us. This existing website has our calendar of summer and fall programs. Take a look and think about which programs you want to participate in if we can safely open back up. We have been here in Skamokawa for you for over 20 years and we will do everything we can to keep on being here. Stay safe. Stay healthy.
