Launching from Sellwood Riverfront Park, the 2.5-hour guided expedition up the Willamette River combines a lesson on basic skills and safety with a trip to Ross Island, a wildlife refuge home to great blue herons and ospreys. Though all equipment is included, paddlers should bring their own binoculars for the best views of the birds and license plates of nearby boats.

About Next Adventure
Though Next Adventure arms adventurers with a range of outdoor gear, from standup paddleboards to alpine-ski gear for the winter months, the kayak is its specialty. Beyond the shop's sale and rental inventory of sit-on-top, whitewater, sea, and touring styles, instructors impart the ins and outs of paddling in the Next Adventure Kayak School. Their classes cover topics such as sea and whitewater kayaking, basic strokes, and techniques for rolling the vessel upright when it's overturned in the middle of a rapid. Guides also lead regular trips across the water to local landmarks such as Sauvie Island and Rooster Rock.
