Float, Fish, or Drift down the Siletz River in a Kayak, Canoe or our (coming soon) Catamaran

Why would anyone want to fish from our Catamarans?

Because our catamaran, two Canoes\Kayaks become much more than the sum of the parts. our catamaran feature opens new horizons and adds new dimensions to the exciting world of river fishing, floating or drifting.

two cano2In a matter of minutes, our special kit can be convert two kayaks or canoes into one catamaran. The structural integrity of this system has been proven on expeditions worldwide.

Our Catamaran-Kayak\Canoe are efficient at keeping paddlers of different strengths from separating — don’t worry about leaving weaker paddlers behind in your wake. Our Catamaran-Kayak\Canoe offer the best of all possible combinations: they are the most social double seaters with side-by-side paddling, and they disassemble in minutes to give canoes back the freedom and flexibility of paddling singles and can be transported easily

When crossing rough or open stretches of water, our canoe-cats offer incredible stability: the rig is virtually ‘untippable’.

A sick or injured boater can be carried more efficiently (and safely) in a our Catamaran-Kayak\Canoe than by towing a boat.

Our Catamaran-Kayak\Canoe are a stable platform for launching scuba dives, snorkeling, swimming, or fishing. the center platform makes a great nest for snoozing and bagging rays.

Do not want to paddle?

Our Catamaran-Kayak\Canoe was built keeping this criteria in mind…

Less Cost than Renting a Motor Boat

Easy to transport …. lightweight and compact enough to move

Easy to assemble (fast, on-site construction with no alteration to the hulls)

Where Float, Fish, or Drift Trips Start


Ichwhit (Bear) Park is located on the Siletz River approximately river mile 6.7 (within tidal influence.)  Facilities include a new boat ramp, boarding floats, vault toilet, parking for boat trailers and passenger vehicles.



The Experience Need

This paddle is for the slightly more adventurous kayaker!  As we descend 6 miles down this gem of the central Oregon Coast we will navigate through winding curves and some easy rapids on our way. As we ride the current towards the sea, keep an eye out for deer, elk, river otters, birds and even salmon and swellhead at the right time of year. Prior paddling experience is recommended but not required.

What to Wear

Wear comfortable clothing that is appropriate for the day’s weather. Quick drying synthetic fabrics and comfortable footwear that can get wet are best. We recommend a water bottle and an extra layer for warmth and don’t forget the camera.
