Take a tour of the Willamette River from Portland Kayak Company for an unparalleled view of the Portland skyline and wildlife. Excellent for both first-time kayakers and experienced paddlers, the tour even drifts past a blue heron rookery. Kayakers might spot bald eagles and osprey as they float by Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge. Visitors also can rent stand-up paddleboards.
Kids as young as six are fine, often accompanying parents in a double-sized kayak. Call Portland Kayak for your specific situation.
