There is really nothing like a great day of learning to whitewater kayak.  The thrills, the spills and the laughs!  Northwest River Guides teaches our beginner whitewater kayak classes on the lower Clackamas River.  The Clack, as we call it, is a great place to learn because it has water all summer long and into the fall, and has class 1-2 rapids, the “bunny slopes” of whitewater.  These easy sections of whitewater rapids allow for mistakes to be made and chances to try again and again until a student gets it right.  The Clack is only about 20 minutes from downtown Portland making day kayaking trips simple and quick.  Join us for a great time on the river and learn to kayak with Portland’s best kayak school, Northwesr River Guides.  Call 503.772.1122 or check our website for more information.
