With gentle humor and contagious enthusiasm, they provided clear and detailed instructions and demonstrations for what to expect while kayaking on the river. And Andrew, especially, knows the birds and... More

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

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

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...
