Canoeing, Kayaking, Stand Up Paddleboarding, River Float Trips​ & water recreation in Bend, Oregon

Nothing in the world compares to an afternoon spent canoeing, kayaking, floating, or embarking on an SUPcontent_canoe.jpg journey by standup paddleboarding on the mighty Deschutes. This crystal-clear river winds its way through the heart of the city, so you can savor your Bend sightseeing with a side of aquatic adventure. The new Bend Whitewater Park opened September 2015 at the Colorado Avenue Dam on the Deschutes River. Open to the public and free for all to enjoy, this state-of-the-art park features a floater's channel, a nature habitat channel, and a whitewater channel with waves created by electronically controlled pneumatic bladders.

If flatwater is more your speed, head up to one of the high Cascade lakes where you’ll find plenty of spots to dip your toes and paddles in the water. No matter where you go or which watercraft you pick, you’re sure to create lasting memories when you explore the lakes and rivers of Bend.
