Kayak Through Portland on the Willamette River

Kayak Through Portland on the Willamette River

Portland, OregonCall For Price 1/2 Day

Come summertime, every Portlander itches to get in the water. A unique, relaxing way to see the city is from the Willamette River, which runs right through the center of the city. Our Local will accompany you during this great Experience and set up a delicious picnic with regional produce to enjoy together on Ross Island, just a few paddle strokes away. Make sure you bring a backpack and lots of water or a couple of favorite drinks. You’ll get suited and geared up with rental equipment and you’ll be off on your adventure, going under a couple of bridges and enjoy the views of the city.


Keep your eyes open as we reach Ross Island, as it is home to many species of birds including great blue herons and bald eagles, which make their nests on the island in the spring. Make sure you are wearing your swimming suit, as the water is pretty clean, and you may want to go for a refreshing swim. When time is up you will make your way to a “happening” local pub to grab a beer or two and some well-deserved relaxation.
