Columbia Slough Kayak & Canoe Rental Program

Columbia Slough Kayak & Canoe Rental Program

The Columbia Slough Watershed Council is excited to help you, your family, and friends get out onto the water this summer and experience the Slough!  We'll provide the boats, life-jackets, and paddles, all that is missing is you!  Throughout the summer we will be stationed at different locations along the Slough providing you with a  great opportunity to explore the various sections of the 18-mile long waterway.

If for some reason the available rental dates do not work with your schedule, no need to panic. Simply email our Community Partnerships & Events Director at and we will make every effort to accommodate requests but cannot guarantee availability.

To start your reservation, fill out the information below and read through our health and safety guidelines with regards to COVID-19. You will then be directed to a menu to choose your date and time for the rental. Each time slot can accommodate up to 6 people from the same household, or 2 canoes.

* In order to limit the spread of COVID-19, we do ask that groups rent boats only with individuals whom they are living with.

* It will be mandatory for your group, all staff, and our volunteers to wear appropriate face coverings at all times while on land. While on the water, we ask that you are mindful of your distance relative to other boats while on the Slough and take necessary precautions regarding whether or not you should put your face covering on.
