     After several paddles...Florence, Tualatin River, Willamette Narrows, I'm really glad I found this group. Great times with fun people. I have always had trouble finding mid-week paddling companions. No longer have that problem, it seems. Awesome group!

     Awesome 

    on Jul 8, 2014.

  • KAYAK PORTLAND

     It's all these great people that make Kayak Portland so wonderful! These people are friendly, kind, knowledgeable, helpful, funny, adventures, and great to socialize with at after paddles. They have provided Kayak Portland with great new locations to paddle, hosted many themselves, encouraged others to paddle, help others to learn, expanded our reach to include some whitewater, surfing, fishing and open water kayaking. Some also splash in with SUPs and canoes. Water, beautiful North West locations, human powered crafts, and great people are the ingredients that go into each Kayak Portland adventure. Come and experience for yourself. We'd love to see you on the water too. 

    on Jul 4, 2014.

  • KAYAK PORTLAND

     This paddle group was so necesary in Portland. It's funny how so many Portland natives and long-timers have no clue where to go paddle....we all REALLY WANT to go, but it seems to take a couple of new folks from out of town to scout things out and get a group up and going. I am sooo jazzed about Kayak Portland and look forward to many adventures and training opportunities, as well as a chance to make new pals.

  • KAYAK PORTLAND

     Kayak Portland ROCKS!!!! What a great group of people. Our dauntless trip leader, Richard, is awesome, and it's such a relaxed, easy way to be out on the water and make new friends. I really like the inclusiveness of this group. I've paddled with other groups where, if you didn't have the fastest, latest equipment and a solid roll, you weren't really welcome. At Kayak Portland, I (and my old scratched-up plastic boat) feel right at home.
