Our Canoeru, Russ Woodward, has paddled the waters of Oregon, Washington, California and Idaho for over 20 years. He has lived on the water, racing canoes, instructing, leading trips, and Russ has been a safety team member for Oregon’s largest annual paddle event, Paddle Oregon for many years. He has led hundreds of people safely down the rivers of Oregon time after time. Russ is also an active member, and former board member, of the Willamette River Keeper (WRK). WRK works to restore, protect, and preserve the Willamette River.

Russ is a fantastic resource for planning a safe, fun adventure on an Oregon River or Lake.

Paddle People can transport up to 12 people comfortably in our bus. Our bus has large windows, which make for fantastic views. The comfy, air-conditioned, Paddle People bus and 12 boat trailer can transport you, your boats, bikes and camping gear too. We can even arrange for a chef.

We are licensed, insured, and registered Oregon Guides. We can guide you and provide canoes,  kayaks, and stand up paddle boards too.

Think of the possibilities. You bring a few personal items. We do all of the driving, and provide the kayaks, canoes, and SUPs. We also setup the campsite shelters, and kitchen; even a portable outhouse.
