This is a great company, offering personal and group kayaking tours. The guides are experts and throughly knowledgable about the flora and fauna of the Columbia River. They provided an exquisite introduction to a group of Road Scholars, all of whom left richer for the experience. Mark, Andrew, and Levi provided professionalism, care, and warmth throughout our trip, sharing their... More

Thank you, Levi for a wonderful morning of kayaking. We traveled in the main channel with the tide and returned thru the refuge. Excellent instruction and quality equipment.

We had such a good time with a "re-introduction" to kayaking at Columbia River Kayaking. We did a private tour for two of us with Mark. He is a good teacher and provided plenty of instruction so that we felt comfortable. He included lots of interesting information about natural history of the area. The equipment was in good shape and... More

Each trip was a kayaking adventure combined with a learning experience. The equipment was excellent and the guides were eager to please. Even when the weather turned to cold and rain, our safety...

I've kayaked in Canada, Wyoming, and 4 southern states and have not encountered guides as well versed in their knowledge of their locale as Andrew and Mark. You also get excellent equipment and scenic paddles on the river. Tough to beat!

Carbon fiber paddles, kayaks with ergonomic seating, hatch covers that really fit, new high quality, comfortable PFDs and skirts. And the best, most knowledgeable, engaged and humorous guides you will be privileged to meet. Their knowledge of both kayaking skills, planning and safety and the natural environment, culture and history of the area is unsurpassed. You will not be disappointed.

The guides are the best ever! Andrew and Mark are skilled and unflappable. Andrew, especially, is a wonderful storyteller, very knowledgeable about history and the environment. The equipment is in great shape too.
