Had an enjoyable afternoon SUP (Stand Up Paddleboard) in the Willamette narrows. enrg kayaking did a great job. The equipment is good. The staff wears their face mask, made sure we were checked out with correctly, assessed our skill level and provided tips. They offer weekend rentals at Willamette Park in West Linn. On weekdays they often run camps. This week they had no camps, I had relatives in town and called in advance to see if they could rent us paddleboards at the West Linn site on a weekday. The staff had to check, but they called back and accepted the reservation and made it work. Their efforts to do something extra is really appreciated. I recommend them.

Booked for a family adventure - 7 of us - ranging from no experience to seasoned kayakers. What a fun experience for all of us. There was plenty of parking and we were immediately welcomed by the manager, who joined us on the tour along with our guide Will. The safety meeting went smoothly and soon we were in kayaks and headed south toward the scenic Oregon City Falls. We are all native Oregonians but we still learned many interesting facts from Will and I appreciated his ability to keep us corralled!

I would highly recommend the 90 minute tour. Seeing the Falls from river level was a new perspective for us and lots of fun.

We’ve lived in the area for 30 years and it took a pandemic-forced staycation to discover a gem of an activity at our back door. Will definitely bring my next batch of out-of-town visitors to do this relaxing paddle to the falls and back. Chris was well prepared and knowledgeable.

This is a nice, easy spot to kayak and see the Willamette Falls, which are worth seeing. We went on an afternoon tour but in hindsight I wish that we had simply rented a kayak rather than paid $70 a piece plus tip for a kayak tour. The tour guide was nice but she really didn't have a lot of information to share and we could have easily kayaked without her.

This was a wonderful thing to do with visiting family. We had an 8 YO with us so we appreciated the guides' attention to safety. Once on the water, they shared the history and fun facts about what we were seeing. Tips were provided on paddling and getting around. Our group was mixed - new kayakers and some very experienced. It was a good experience for everyone. We'll be back to enjoy the water again.

My adult kids, 14 year old daughter, and I spent an afternoon learning the fundamentals of whitewater kayaking with Enrg kayaking. Nate was an awesome teacher and we all learned a lot. He had us up and running quickly and comfortable enough to run some class 1+ rapids.
This is the most fun I have had in a long time. We will be back for the next class.

Definitely recommend these guys!

We were visiting from out of town and wanted something a local outdoor activity. This was perfect. We enjoyed a nice stress free guided paddle to the falls and back. Our guide was very competent and safety oriented and fairly knowledgeable of the area.

super fun quick trip to Willamette Falls in a kayak! experienced, personable guides, great equipment, lots of sites and history. there are cubbyholes to leave your personal items in the shop, valuables are kept behind the desk. all you need is sunscreen, a hat, water and whatever you take photos with!

Awesome experience. Was in town with a friend of mine and wanted to hit the water while we were there. Booked a Willamette Falls Tour and, when we showed up, found out it was going to be just us two. Despite that. the host and guide (Leah?) could not have been more welcoming and excited to take us out. She made sure we had the proper covering for the wet and cold and gave us a wonderful tour of the river replete with historical facts about the area as well as cultural insights. The river definitely gave us a workout and our guide made it extremely fun, even making sure to get a few pictures of us paddling which she shared when we returned to HQ. Ninety minutes went by in a flash. Highly recommend booking with these folks!

We were pretty disappointed. The location is near a lot of construction and so it wasn't very pretty. Also wasn't expecting a history tour so there wasn't much active kayaking, more stopping to hear the guide talk. I think the tour should really consider moving locations
