Why eNRG?

We are passionate.

eNRG Kayaking is passionate about introducing you to the sport of kayaking, honing your skills, and traveling to foreign rivers to experience other cultures. We strive to explore and protect rivers while creating and developing strong paddling communities.

We are welcoming.

Kayaking is our outlet to a healthy lifestyle and pristine natural resources.  We invite you to come along for the adventure. From out your back door to around the world, you will discover a newfound freedom through our kayaking program.

We are experienced.

After 10 years in business and well over a century of combined experience, we have taught over 4,000 people to kayak in the Portland area. Now that we have an ON WATER location based at the confluence of the Clackamas and Wilamette River, we are the GO TO Kayak school and retail store in northwestern Oregon.

eNRG Kayaking is a nationally-recognized leader in kayak instruction, instructor certification, swiftwater rescue instruction, and guide training.

We are diverse.

We have run 16 international trips on four continents in ten countries including Canada, Costa Rica, Panama, Thailand, Laos, Nepal, China, India, Zambia, and Botswana.

We are sustainable.

We are dedicated to building a stronger paddling community through our Down the River Cleanup on the Clackamas River.  Over the last eight years, we have helped empower over 1500 volunteers to clean over 100 river miles and over 40,000 lbs trash was removed from the river in a eight, one day efforts.

If you are looking for experience, skill, and knowledge look no further than eNRG Kayaking.
