Guide was great, view was amazing. Party of 12 easily accommodated by the helpful staff. Whole new perspective of the Willamette Falls. We've done it twice now. Highly recommend. Get up and go, you will be so happy you did.

We did the Clackamas River on our visit to Oregon. Kyle and Sam were so helpful with our rental and shuttle. The Clackamas was exactly what we were looking for with mostly class I rapids and good scenery. On one section we were able to look behind us for a beautiful view of Mt. Hood.

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.

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
