We've all got to start somewhere. Why not on a fun and educational 2.5-hour class on the Willamette River? We'll be trying out stable, beginner-friendly recreational kayaks as we paddle to Ross Island at a leisurely pace. You will learn basic kayak skills as well as get a chance to sneak up on some unsuspecting wildlife, perhaps some great blue herons and ospreys. Ross Island acts as refuge for large numbers of wildlife so don't forget to bring your binoculars. By the end of the class you will be equipped with the knowledge to safely paddle recreational kayaks on your own adventures.
