The Columbia River Water Trail is a wonderful place to explore by kayak.  Come paddle through the winding waterways of the Lewis River, Columbia River, and Lake River on this full day tour!  A variety of birds and wildlife are often seen as we slip around the puzzle pieces of land and stop for lunch along the river!  This 7 mile flat water tour is a terrific way to experience the beauty of the river and cover a little more distance.  We offer introductory paddle techniques and skill building assistance where needed on this tour.

We require a minimum of 4 paddlers for this tour to run.

Gratuity:  It's NEVER expected but always appreciated.  If you feel your coaches / guides have done an exceptional job and made your experience a memorable one, then you can certainly show your appreciation by giving a tip. The amount is totally up to you. Many people believe that anyone in a service type of job (like restaurant and hotel employees, hair dressers and dog groomers, etc.) should get between 10-20% of the total cost of the service. That is not to say that’s what we suggest, but that’s what most people tip when they do tip. So, for instance, if your trip was $200.00, and your guide made your experience a memorable one, a $20-$40 tip would be generous and greatly appreciated!
