Meeting at Clackamette Park, guides furnish kayakers of any skill level with all the equipment they'll need to enjoy their tour. After smoothly launching into the Willamette River, the narrated tour heads upstream. Paddlers drink in the sights as they pass both man- and nature-made architecture such as bridges and rock walls, eventually reaching the base of Willamette Falls—one of the largest natural waterfalls in the United States. Participants should be cold-water ready with synthetic clothing and warm socks. Additional equipment such as wetsuits, long-sleeve waterproof paddle jackets, neoprene gloves or booties, and head beanies are available for rent.
