Hit the Water with Nestucca Adventures in Pacific City
Located on the Nestucca River in Downtown Pacific City, this marina shop with dock and put-in has a large selection of kayaks and SUPs (Stand Up Paddle Boards) of all types and sizes, and they’ll give you all the instruction and guidance you might need for a beautiful paddle. Their convenient location means there’s no need to transport a kayak before starting your adventure. Both double and single kayaks are available for rent by the hour, and other necessary gear such as paddles and life jackets is also provided. Head upstream of the Pacific Avenue Bridge from your kayak through scenic forest and farmland, where you’ll find plenty of places to explore.
If you’re feeling more adventurous, take a short drive and discover the nearby Nestucca River estuary. Here you’ll find plenty of wildlife and nature to explore. This is a great spot for birdwatching as well, with bald eagles and osprey frequently seen in the area. After your adventure on the river, don’t forget to stop by the Nestucca Adventures store for a souvenir and some refreshments before heading home. Whether you’re an experienced paddler or just starting out, Nestucca Adventures has something for everyone!
“We had a great paddle today with Nestucca Adventures. Everything was easy from getting lifejackets to launching to coming back to the dock after a great paddle. The owners are super friendly and helpful and even recommended a great spot for lunch after. The kayaks are comfy and easy to use. Tons of herons on our paddle! Highly recommend!”
“Friendly, knowledgeable, attentive staff made our tandem kayaking experience great for the two hours we spent on the water. We used a penguin paddle kayak. We got a great lower body work out. Saw seals in the river, beautiful landscapes from the middle of the river. Up river about 5 miles. We will be back.”
“Perfect chance to try kayaking with pedal kayak! Staff is very helpful and friendly. Bathrooms right next door. This is an affordable way to get on the water and see what you can’t see from the car on the road. This was a highlight of our vacation on the Oregon coast.”
