    Spring in Bend is stunning. The wildflowers are starting to bloom, there is still snow in the mountains but sun on our backs and wildlife are beginning to scamper around! Join us as we explore a beautiful stretch of the incredible Deschutes River on Kayak! The paddle is a flatwater (no rapids) stretch of the Deschutes where we will be able to immerse ourselves in the stunning surroundings, teeming wildlife & more! Our renowned naturalist guides will highlight the sweet spots on these stunning waterways that might not initially meet the eye. During our 2 hours on the water, along with the fun and sun, we may impart an understanding of the area’s hydrology and how water sustains all living things.
