The Gorge Paddling Center located along the waterfront path in Hood River, Oregon.

We are the premier kayak and paddleboard center in the Columbia River Gorge and have been providing instruction, guided trips, and rentals in Hood River since 1998. We are locally owned/operated and pride ourselves on the ability share this wonderful region by providing quality experiences on the water. Our flatwater kayaking trips are for those who want to enjoy the amazing scenery of the Columbia Gorge from the cockpit of a kayak. One of our most popular offerings is Stand Up Paddleboarding on the Columbia River, which departs from our waterfront location in Hood River.  Contact us today and find out what adventure is right for you. We look forward to getting you on the water!
