The team of Andrew, Levi and Katie trained us well and ushered us through 3 days of gorgeous paddling. They knew how to work the tides and helped us just enough to give us a solid foundation and a sense of independence. Their knowledge of the flora, fauna and history of the area is unmatched. We were blessed with "merry... More

First time even getting close to a kayak. Everyone was very kind and helpful. Our instructors were Andrew, Levi, and Katie. Brought their own skills knowledge and entertainment to the water. The equipment was top notch. Before we began everything was discussed, safety rules, the equipment and use. What their roles as instructors were. Encouraging me as nervous first timer... More

Katie was a great guide. We took the Newcomer's 3 hour tour of the north side of the Columbia River. September is a great time to visit.

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

We had a great week on the river with Columbia River Kayaking. Andrew and Mark were amazingly knowledgeable about the area, history, natural history, plants and wildlife. 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!
