Whether you want to paddle the whitewater rivers of the Cascades or the calm high mountain lakes of Central Oregon, Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe in Bend has the boats and gear you need to get out and enjoy your time on the water. We offer classes, tours, rentals and demos. Please come on down to the shop and visit our super friendly staff of paddlers. Whether you are looking for that new boat or just advice about where to paddle, we are here to help.
Tumalo Creek has the largest selection of whitewater kayaks, sea kayaks, recreational kayaks, paddleboards and canoes in Central Oregon. We are located right on the Deschutes River so rentals and demos can be put in the water right off the back lawn or carried down to McKay Park for a pleasant afternoon exploring Mirror Pond.
Owner and operator Geoff Frank moved to Bend in 2000 to open the shop as manager under the name Alder Creek. In 2008, he became owner and renamed the store Tumalo Creek Kayak and Canoe in honor of one of the most scenic tributaries of the Deschutes River.
