Blue Sky Rafting, Clackamas River Whitewater

MAKE A SPLASH

Explore the closest whitewater rafting and kayaking to Portland, Oregon, on Mt. Hood Territory’s seven rivers and more than 40 lakes. Whether motorized or human powered, water play can happen fast on a jetboat ride or slowly as you relax at Bagby Hot Springs.

Follow the Sandy River Water Trail  through epic to modest rapids or join a whitewater rafting trip on the  Wild and Scenic Clackamas River. Fish from a kayak or boat at the many lakes in The Territory. In the summer, take a plunge in the  clear and refreshing waters in the great outdoors or at The Territory’s parks and aquatic centers.

Tour the Willamette River while dining aboard the Portland Spirit, a paddle wheel boat. Immerse yourself in some cultural history while floating in a replica Native American dugout canoe.

Learn how to kayak, canoe or stand-up paddleboard (SUP). A number of guides and instructors deliver unforgettable water  adventures. Rent boats, boards and other gear for DIY waterplay.
