Had a friend up from SoCal, so of course I had to show off our abundance of liquid here in the PNW. I had snagged the Groupon deal earlier and what a spectacular deal this turned out to be! In addition the the perfect weather (sunny, no wind) the sea lions and gigantic sturgeon were almost mind blowing...and we hadn't... More

My wife and I didn't have any complaints with the tour, and we liked our guide well enough: friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. We both love outdoor activities. I think we were just disappointed in witnessing the owner verbally abuse his girlfriend. It still troubles me, and I wouldn't recommend this business solely for that reason.

My daughter and I had a great time. Found a great deal on Groupon for a two hour guided tour up to Willamette Falls. Our guide was very knowledgeable, but he let us do our own thing and answered every question we had. I would do this again!

I booked the white water rafting trip for myself, my husband, my daughter and her fiance. We arrived at the office when told to but it was locked up tight. Called the number on my reservation and was told the guide was probably just delayed a few minutes and to wait 10-15. Called again and was told the guide should... More

We took the Willamette Falls tour and had a great time. It was great for beginners. The guide was very knowledgeable pointing out the history of the surrounding area and local wildlife, including sea lions! The guide took her time going up the river and back so everyone could keep up had a chance to ask questions. This is about... More

This was an awesome experience! We had never been kayaking before and we had the best time. Our instructor was great and very knowledgable. This is a great trip for beginners (like us) or someone experienced. Its an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon.

Better than expected experience!! Kyle was a great "guru". The experience was relaxing and exhilarating. The instruction provided made me feel very comfortable. A definitely great experience, I had no idea there were sea lions on the river, and how huge they are!!! I will be returning for additional instruction and possibly a tour. Time very well spent.

Lovely introduction to kayaking. Sherri was our guide and did an outstanding job. She accommodated different levels of ability and ages. Took time to answer questions and share her knowledge of local history. Loved it!

I've had the pleasure to enjoy both the 1.5 hr Kayak tour of Willamette Falls as well as the 1 hr Paddle board lesson through eNRG Kayaking. The Kayak tour was a blast, very informational in the area of the history of the area and the tour guide was exceptionally gifted in teaching a new Kayaker like myself. Highly recommended!... More

We enjoyed our short afternoon paddle up the Willamette and back. The scenery is pretty and we got to see two sea lions and an osprey. This is a great way to spend some time on the water in the summer. Our only complaint was that the tour was so short. We would have liked to have spent more time... More
