Had a great time in kayaking the Chetco River with a very knowledgeable and fun guide. We are in our 60's and 70's and more or less beginner kayakers. We absolutely loved our guide who was very knowledgeable about the Chetco River history as well as helping my husband adjust the kayak for his back issues. While the day was windy it was not an issue for us in our double kayak. Enjoyed the wildlife along the way...deer, heron...as well as the harbor seal who followed us the entire trip. Highly recommend this tour and would do it again!

That is a perfect first timer tour and for folks who just want a mellow paddle on a beautiful wild and scenic river.

Nicholas was very knowledgeable about the fauna and flora of the region. He made us feel safe and we had a beautiful kayak outing. We saw many cute harbor seals, along with snowy egrets, cormorants, seagulls, minnows, ducks and a great blue heron. The 12 foot kayaks were nice with a rudder to steer by using your feet. I highly recommend this trip, but keep in mind it is only 2 hours.

This company was great. They took out info online and kept a good social distance. The equipment had been sanitized and ready for us when we arrived after a brief Instruction we were on the water. The equipment was clean and did not smell Moldy. The kayaks were newer and had many seat and leg adjustments for all different body types. The river was calm and there are places to easily get out the kayaks and take a dip along the river. It was a perfect two hours.

Fantastic morning kayaking with my wife!!! Our guide, Katie, was knowledgable and fun. We felt so amazed to be so close to harbor seals, star fish, osprey and much more. I appreciated the wetsuit and boots. The kayaks were easy to use and very stable. I even had the joy or riding a wave.

Beautiful trip. 12 of us took 3-4 hours with ages ranging from 5-63. A few of the younger ones that had their own kyak gave out and had to be "towed" but we had a great time overall.

The kayak tour was very nice. Our guide Nicholas was excellent at teaching us what we needed to do and then keeping the tour enjoyable by pointing out different things along the river.
