 Val Shaull & Chip Sell


This course is a amalgamation of rafting, canoeing and sea kayking to meet the needs of very paddler. Students will learn the techniques of rafting in one of Oregon's majestic rivers during a full day excursion.  Only fifteen minutes from Reed, the Willamette River is a fine place to retreat once a week for a couple hours and practice canoe and sea kayak strokes. The essentials of tandem flat-water canoeing are taught, and we have plenty of time to practice our draws, prys, and j-strokes.

Great blue herons are often seen, bald eagle occasionally spotted, and wildlife skiing behind jet boats tolerated.

This course has no fee and all equipment and instruction will be provided for the beginner to advanced student.
