How long has CRK been in business?

CRK was started in 2007, when several guides who had been leading kayak tours in the area since 1998, came together to form an LLC and Columbia River Kayaking was born. Two of the current owners and guides, Andrew and Levi, are founding members. Owner, guide and coach, Kyleen, joined CRK in 2014. CRK guides are wilderness first responders with a passion for local natural history and specialize in taking groups out on the lower Colubmia River.

Can I try out different kayaks at the Open House? 

We are happy to make an appointment with you to try out different kayaks. Unfortunately, there won’t be enough time to do so at this event.  

Do you sell kayaks?

We do not sell kayaks. When you book a trip with CRK all of your gear is included. CRK takes pride in our fleet of kayaks which include Wilderness Systems, Necky, Eddyline, and others. Rest assured we will outfit you with a great boat, paddle and matching spray skirt for any size, including plus sizes.

We hope to see you there!
