Challenging, exhilarating, & wonderful week kayaking the lower Columbia River. Andrew, Mark, & Ginni are exceptional guides & leaders--because of them each participant was able to develop & expand their personal skill-set during the week in preparation for the tough, yet epic final day's paddle to Astoria. B&B's & their hosts are delightful. Each evening program was a treat--an added bonus to this super program.

I have just returned home from the Advanced Kayaking on the Lower Columbia River trip. I am still smiling. Everthing about this program was wonderful. The Lucky Mudd Bed and Breakfast where I stayed was a true gem which sparkled even more when owners Jessica and Sunrise were in the room. The guides, Mark, Andrew and Katie, were very experienced as well as friendly and very approachable. This is truly a challenging trip and we all paddled the distance thanks to their leadership and encouragement. I would highly recommend this trip to experienced kayakers who wish to expand their kayaking skills and stretch their comfort zones. Truly exhilarating!
