Take a snowshoe tour at Crater Lake National Park in the Cascade Mountains of southern Oregon. It’s known for its namesake Crater Lake, and the views from the rim inspire awe. Formed by the now-collapsed volcano, Mount Mazama, Crater Lake is spectacular in the winter and summer. Our guides will take you on the West Rim Drive road surrounding the lake, offering scenic views of the water and the park’s volcanic formations in all of their winter glory.
Whatever adventure you choose, you will always see a diversity of wildlife, especially birds. The Upper Klamath Basin has 2/3's of the birds on the Pacific Flyway migratory route stopping here throughout the year. We have seen and categorized over 120 different species on the Williamson River alone! You might also see River Otters, Beavers, Turtles, or other animals that come down to the water's edge, such as Coyotes, Foxes, Mink, Weasels, etc.
We make it easy! Our shuttle rig operates in the Upper Klamath Basin and can haul up to 18 kayaks in one trip to get you on the water. When you rent a paddle craft, for a small fee, we will deliver the boat to the waters you will be on, when you finish, we will come and pick up the boats and shuttle you back to your launch location if need be.
Are you not using our gear? That's ok; we'll help you with a shuttle too. When you plan your trip, arrange with us to be picked up and shuttled back to your vehicle, then enjoy your trip knowing we will be there to pick you up.
Our guides are always taking pictures along the way, and we are more than happy to share those pictures with you at no cost at the end of the trip. If you want a more professional package, we can do a drone video of your adventure or a picture book to take home to share with family and friends. If you are from the area we also offer our drone photography/videography services for your needs such as capturing imagery of real estate events, construction projects, documentations or anything else you may need.

The waterways in the Upper Klamath Basin are some of the most nearly pristine in the nation. Oregon law requires watercraft to be clean when going from one waterway to another. Invasive species and organisms can hitch a ride on a dirty boat. We offer a kayak cleaning service at our location in Chiloquin to help you keep your kayaks clean. We clean all of our paddle crafts thoroughly after each use and have done thousands of cleanings. We suggest you clean your kayaks before entering any new waterway. We only charge $10.00 per kayak.
We welcome large groups!! We can place up to 30 kayaks on the water for larger group events. We love working with kids to see them experience a new activity and enhance their learning. We have put together many school field trip outings, wilderness schools events, corporate team-building retreats, and youth group events We can help you and your large group enjoy a fantastic outdoor fun-filled kayaking day.
So you have never been in a kayak but want to learn. We can help! The waters that we paddle on are mostly pretty flat and offer ideal conditions for the beginner. Some waterways are for the more adventurous, but our experienced guides and staff can give you the kayaking lessons you need. We can provide you with kayak lessons while in a group or one-on-one session.

The Upper Klamath Basin has some of the most pristine waters in Oregon, originating in the Cascade Mountain Range, which includes Crater Lake National Park and the Upper Klamath Basin, where these waters form the Klamath River and flow to the Pacific Ocean.
For the intermediate kayaker. You can start at Jackson F. Kimball State Park near Fort Klamath, and float the Wood River through the Wetlands and out onto Agency Lake. An awesome nature viewing, 6+ mile journey. Or ride bikes around the secluded wetlands and enjoy the area by land.
One of the favorite rivers in our area to enjoy kayaks on is The Williamson River. At its starting point, coming straight out of the ground, it's beauty is unmatched as well as the World Class Trout Fishing it has to offer.
For the beginner kayaker. Starting as a spring who's water originates from below Crater Lake National Park, Spring Creek, located at Collier State Park has some of the most beautiful clear waters in the Klamath Basin. And you will see beautiful Osprey's and Eagles who call this place home.
Upper Klamath Lake is the largest body of water in all of Oregon so there is lots to see. On the upper end it converges with Agency Lake with the Wood River flowing into Agency Lake. A bird watchers paradise! Heron's, Pelican's, Eagles, Gulls and allot more.
