Guided Tours of the Alsea Bay
Each tour is around 2 ½ hours long, starting with a short demonstration on the basics of paddling. Then to start, the group will kayak down closer to the Waldport Bridge. After that you will Kayak up “Lint slough”, a local water trail, and experience some of the best natural wildlife Oregon has to offer. Tour groups will be given “free paddle” times during the tour to allow them to kayak around and enjoy the scenery on their own, while staying reasonably close to the tour guide. Your kayak rental, paddle, lifejacket, guide and 30 minutes of instruction are all included in the $50 per person cost of each tour. Visit discounts and deals to see if you qualify!
