The Gorge Paddling Center located along the waterfront path in Hood River, Oregon.
We have the largest fleet of Paddleboard and Kayaks in Hood River. With 100+ items you can bring your whole crew!
Whether you are a novice paddler or an experienced adventurist, we have something for everyone at the Gorge Paddling Center. Our kayak and paddleboard rental site on the Hood River waterfront offers safe and easy access to the scenic Columbia River Gorge.
This makes our site great for all ages and ability levels. Located within the Nichols Boat basin, our launch site is protected from the river current and possible winds of the Columbia River.
For kayakers and paddleboarders looking for a more extreme adventure, we are located just a short kayak or SUP paddle away from the open waters of the Columbia River where many enjoy the 1 mile journey to Wells Island.
FUN FOR ALL AGES!
We had a group from age 5 to 80 and all had fun. The calm water was great for our group of first-time kayakers. The guides did a great job pointing out so much wildlife and the views were amazing!
HIGH QUALITY RENTALS
Great customer service and equipment. Rented a paddle board one day and a kayak another. Highly recommend GPC to anyone!
Awesome experience! This was our second year doing the sunset tour and it is our favorite kayak trip ever!! We will be back next summer!
AMAZING SUNSET TOUR
I had an awesome time with this company. The guide was very friendly and helpful. I am very much a beginner in kayaking. The scenery was stunning as the sun was setting. It was very relaxing and a lot of fun. I highly recommend this.
We had a great time on the sunset kayak trip. Very fun, knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend and will join them for more adventures again!
