eNRG Kayaking is such a great way to spend time with family and friends while enjoying the outdoors. They have options for every level of skill set and are a huge encouragement to the nervous beginner. So excited to know of a business like this that helps people have fun.

eNRG Kayaking is like no other company we have ever found when it comes to Kayaking supplies and and tours. Sam Drevo the owner and Cheri Holman, sales and tour guide have become personal friends of ours with all the business and tours we have done with them. Sam is a professional kayaker and their tour guides are all certified.... More

This rental place was a short walk from our hotel. We got an early morning start and headed upstream to the falls. On the way, we ran into a very large, friendly seal. Approaching the falls can be tricky business. Strong currents and exposed rocks call for some kayaking skills. Very friendly staff and nice life jackets with pockets to... More

My wife and I were in Oregon City for a wedding and found ourselves with a little time on our hands. eNRG was just a short walk from our hotel. With a minimum of effort and paperwork, we found ourselves in a sit-on-top double kayak. We lazily paddled our way up to Willamette Falls. The sun was hot, the sky... More

I bought a living social voucher and went kayaking with my 10 year old son today. We had a blast! All the folks at eNRG Kayaking were helpful and our guide was very knowledgeable about the Falls, the river, the paper mills and the old Locks. We were in good hands and we really enjoyed ourselves......learned some handy kayaking tips... More

What a fantastic experience to kayak the Willamette river in Oregon City and get up close to the Willamette Falls, the Locks and the paper mills. We've had several tours of the Blue Heron paper mill site but nothing compares to experiencing it on the river. To those not familiar with kayaking, eNRG makes if fun and safe! I can't... More

The staff here is awesome. Everyone is welcoming, upbeat and helpful. Exactly what you want for a day out in Portland. They also cater to all levels of experience. I recommend doing the guided tour if you're planning to go with a group. The guides are very knowledgable and I learned new things about the Willamette even as a local... More

If we were heavy-duty kayakers, we would own our own kayak. We don't, nor do we have racks for our car, but we enjoy kayaking, and eNRG has much we can recommend. We rented today, did not use their tour services. We went on a weekday, which means they were less busy than on weekends, and the Willamette River was... More

Very helpful staff. Got us on the water quickly and made sure that everyone understood how to use the gear. Nice that the launch point is on the side of the building protected from the wake of passing boats. Only problem is the flood of customers that come all at once on the week nights, so sometimes there is a... More

In the US, Willamette Falls is second only to Niagra for volume of water passed. I'm 65 and not buff, but found it easy and so very enjoyable. The river is beautiful, our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and I want to do this again soon.
