Nehalem River Tour
Despite close proximity to human civilization, a paddle on the Nehalem river feels like a remote escape. Nearby Nehalem Bay State Park, surrounding salt marshes, and undisturbed islands still provide ample natural habitat, making encounters with harbor seals, screeching eagles, sea birds and elk quite possible. Both upstream and downstream trips provide athletic accomplishment and natural beauty.
Wandering along side the sleepy cities of Nehalem and Wheeler, you can get both a taste of nature and the local community before stepping out of your kayak and into the comforts of coastal accommodations! Don’t forget that the hip and trendy City of Manzanita is just a few miles north.
