What people are saying about Oregon

The lake was beautiful and the brews were perfectly suited to the vibes of the day. We had never piloted a canoe before, but under Josh's tutelage we were immediately tearing up Elk Lake.

Clay was an excellent tour guide, and more importantly an even better pilot. It was a beautiful outing. Absolutely recommend, and will book again when back in Portland.

Super fun trip and great equipment. Guides were excellent and can drive to your own abilities.
