Herbert Hoover won America's hearts and votes when he promised a college-educated chicken in every pot and a kayak in every garage. Get a taste of the American dream with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a basic skills kayak class, plus 15% off merchandise within one week of the lesson at Alder Creek Kayak & Canoe's Jantzen Beach location (a $65 value). This four-hour introductory class dishes prospective paddle personnel on the basics of kayaking. Students begin their aquatic journey in the classroom to discuss safety and equipment before saddling their buoyant steed, taming tides, and befriending water-winged hitchhikers on the liquid trails. Participants will learn how to steer their vessel and have the option to further their shore-side mastery with training in deep-water wet exit and assisted re-entry.

Alder Creek Kayak & Canoe

It's hard to believe that Portland ever lacked a dearth of quality paddle outfitters, considering the many evergreen-lined rivers and nearby coastline. But back in 1986, the founders of Alder Creek Kayak & Canoe felt there were too few options serving the area, so they launched their own garage shop. Their passion for the outdoors and paddle sports steadily built the company, and today, a staff of equipment experts advises guests on kayaking, canoeing, standup-paddleboarding, and rafting supplies. Beyond selling gear from vessels to apparel, staffers lead on-the-water classes and organize group trips. The shop also outfits customers for independent exploration with a fleet of rentals.

Customer Reviews

Beautiful to get out on the river!! What a treat.
Barbara L. · September 2, 2014
the dock leading down to the water is steep! Good footwear and a strong back are needed to get the kayaks down to the water! Otherwise, enjoy!
