Sustainable Living Center Oregon
The Siletz Moorage offers Kayak and Canoe Rentals, Training, and Guided Tours through the heart of Siletz Bay National Wildlife Refuge and Down River Float Tours.
The channels and tidal sloughs at Siletz Bay National Wildlife Refuge are a great place to experience nature.
Siletz Bay is one of numerous estuaries located along the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway. On either side of Highway 101, starched skeleton trees jut forth from the estuary and are reminiscent of a time when the salt marsh was diked for pasture.
You may see Great Egret -It is a large, white bird that looks like a heron, but slightly smaller. It has a “S” shaped neck and a long, sharp bill. You can observe it standing still in marshy water, waiting and watching for prey. If you get too close, a great egret will fly away. It winters along the central-to-southern Oregon coast and South America.
Trips are limited in size and scheduled on a first-come first-serve basis; therefore, advanced reservations are required.

Participants may provide their own canoe or kayak and launch at the Moorage for $6 including parking for one vehicle.

Waring: During the summer, the area of Siletz River nearest the mouth of the bay often has unpredictable winds and waves.
Wearing a personal flotation device (PFD) is mandatory.
