Kayak Availability

We offer a 3-4 hour self-guided tour with no guide needed.


PADDLE through the 660 acres Siletz Bay Federal Bird Wildlife Refuge with its quiet canal like shallow waters, salt marsh, mudflats, sandy beaches, sea grass beds and sheltered channels form the complex tapestry of habitats characteristic of estuaries, where rivers meet and mingle with the sea. Though protected from the full force of the ocean’s pounding waves and buffeting winds, estuarine plants and animals must deal with the rigors of exposure, submersion, and fluctuation in salinity with each tidal cycle.

Exit the Refuge at our Siletz River location, where your vehicle is parked. You do not have to paddle upstream.
