Took a September kayak paddle up the river from the NRG office to Willamette Falls. Paddled into the locks, great history tour of the area on a perfect overcast day. Tour guide was very informative, and able to answer all of our questions about this historical area.

We went out for a family outing in the evening. The staff was friendly, helpful and quick! We were on the water in no time having fun. They provided us with life jackets and the craft of choice. Check them out!

The instructor was extremely patient with our grandchildren, ages 7, 10 & 12. The location is perfect for beginners as the river is calm at this location. The lesson... More

Thanks to eNRGY for an awesome experience, way above and beyond what was expected. We will be back next year, maybe even again this year! When staff work so hard to make sure everyone's needs are met it is a privilege to bless them. Our staff do that every day and obviously, the staff of eNRGY, especially Eric, really see... More

Family came from Texas and our first thought was to go to eNRG kayaking to give them a taste of the Willamette River. The staff was very helpful on the phone and answered all questions - even regarding one family member who is a bit overweight and needed a strong paddle-board. They set us up onsite and were knowledgeable about... More

My friends and I enjoyed Ladies' night during the summer months. We were each able to rent kayaks, canoes, or paddle boards for just $10 each for the evening hours. We enjoyed leisurely paddling down the river towards the falls with time to visit from our water crafts. Please know that on these specialty nights, it is advisable to call... More

Had no idea what to expect. The guide was safe, professional, and most of all FUN! Unique breathtaking views, mild current, great group or couple adventure! Recommend highly for anyone that is just healthy. No skills or brawn required.

We love to SUP and kayak, but since we don't own either this is our go to place. You can get pretty close to Multnomah Falls and sometimes the sea lions are down there as well. Friendly staff and some nice deals on Monday and Tuesday evenings in the summer!

Wonderful narration of Oregon History and tutorial on Nature: the river and wildlife. Nice to learn how to paddle and enjoy this gift of being on the water.
