How It Works
Costumers will come to 3307 NE Marine Drive in Portland on the Columbia River where all of our units are located. We are 2.7 miles east of I-5, 1/2 miles west of Salty's Restaurant on the Columbia, or across the street from the NW corner of Portland International Airport runway. We are located right on the water!
Costumers are encouraged to park in our upper lot next to our office but if full we also have parking lot below one drive way to the east. Once parked just walk into our office where we do all the paper work; asking for identification, collect rental fee, damage deposit (just verify funds available $500-1000 depending upon model), sign waivers, fill out a form for OSMB, etc.
We will provide life jackets and have charts of the river to view out surrounding waterways. We encourage customers to wear foot protection and appropriate clothing based upon conditions. Customers are then taken to the equipment to be rented where staff will cover operational topics, condition of equipment, safety items location, overview of rules and laws, and items to avoid damage. Most of our fleet is located in the water but some we keep on trailers where customers can trailer away.
From out marina customers can head out, and in 45 minutes to the east be in the Columbia River Gorge, or head to the west and turn up the Willamette River to down town Portland. There are no zone restrictions so customers can go where they wish. Many sandy beaches and areas to explore.
