Event description

Description

Enjoy a leisurely paddle on a lake created 15,000 years ago by cataclysmic freshwater floods! This family friendly paddle on Lacamas Lake is a great way to see songbirds, raptors, and waterfowl while learning about the natural history of the region. Guides will be onboard the two 29' fourteen-passenger canoes to steer, offer paddling tips, and answer questions.

Who can paddle?

  • Big Canoe trips are open to the public and are suitable for ages 5 and up. Previous paddling experience is not necessary.
  • Participants with special needs can often be accommodated with advance notice.
  • Paddlers must step down 2.5 feet into the canoe and sit on a hard bench without back support.

Do I need any equipment or special gear?

  • Please come prepared for the weather with appropriate jacket, sun block, sunglasses, water shoes or old sneakers, and water.
  • Paddles and personal flotation devices in standard sizes for ages 5 and above are provided.
  • The Estuary Partnership will supply bird guides and binoculars.

Can I bring my camera?

  • Yes. Be advised that we cannot guarantee the safety of electronic devices and do not offer dry bags. Occasional splashes and rain make the bottom of the boat wet, but typically gear in a pocket will stay dry.

Are paddle trips safe?

  • Safety is always the first priority. Our guides are trained in on-water rescue, CPR, and Wilderness First Aid.
  • Water activities carry inherent risk; guides take precautions to ensure a safe paddling experience.
  • See our safety protocols or contact us for more information about how we stay safe on the water.
