“Kayak heaven”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

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 love of the area and its many wonders. Thank you all!

“Great Fun!”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

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 the office staff are friendly. This seems like a company made up of people who love what they are doing. We are looking forward to coming back to do another trip.

“A Week on the Columbia”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

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 and comfort were always the first concern. On the sunny days, the magnificent scenery, majestic river, and abundant wildlife made the trip a memorable experience. Highly recommended.
