I decided to beat the rest of my group out to Hood River to play on the water for a few hours and the Gorge Paddling Center was perfect for that. It's located almost directly across the Port stop for the Columbia Gorge Express and the local Hood River route which is very convenient. I arrived not long after opening and the process of renting a kayak and getting out on the water was incredibly easy. The Paddling Center is located in a protected cove which was perfect for reorienting my rusty kayak muscles. Since I was rusty, I asked for tips while signing in and got information about the weather conditions and tips for the best route. It was a gorgeous day with sun, nice temperatures, and almost no wind so paying at the end with no limit meant I didn't have to worry about making it back at a certain time and could just enjoy my time on the water. It was a great experience and I'd recommend them to anyone!

Loved our kayak tour with Todd! Todd actually took my husband and I onto his tour when our original tour company canceled at the last minute which we really appreciated. Amazing views and a relaxing night out on the water!

Great experience. The equipment was nice and our guide Todd was great. He seemed as happy to be there as we were. Glad we didn’t choose the other kayak company that operates here; they paddled back to the boat ramp before the sun had even set! Bummer for that group…they missed a beautiful sunset.

We had a great time on the sunset kayak. Was a pretty calm evening on the water and perfect for enjoying the sunset views from the water. Would highly recommend!
