      Are you from Portland? If so, I definitely recommend this place! The tour was great! (And affordable.)

    Oh my god, this post makes me so happy. Two of my favorite things in Portland- kayaking & beer. Alder Creek is fantastic, we’ve had nothing but great experiences with them and the Green Dragon….nom, nom, nom.

      Have you done any of the other tours they offer? I really want to check them out.

        I haven’t. I recognized your guide though from the photo (although I forget his name)- he did a class on NW dream trips that had my husband & I both salivating.

        Their Basic Skills class is really good, and I would highly recommend it if kayaking is something you want to do more of- it’s a fun, four hours. Better to do in warm weather though, cuz they do throw you out of your boat. 🙂

        We’ve done the Basic Skills class twice (years apart) and then took the Full Immersion Sea Kayak I, and their Short Boat Surf Class. Every April they also have Paddle Fest (free!) at Vancouver Lake Park. It’s fun.

          He did mention a class that is required before you can RENT kayaks from them. I bet it’s that one you mentioned. It sounds like a good class. I might look into it. We are talking about buying a kayak but I’m not quite ready to go out on my own without a guide honestly…
