Columbia River Kayaking

Exploring the Lower Columbia River and Beyond

Two wildlife refuges.


     Right in our own back yard.


Our tours and lessons are available for beginner through advanced
levels. We know the places – serene sloughs, swimming holes, places to watch the salmon returning to the streams in which they were hatched, gently swirling eddies to learn in, and scenic wide open channels.
