To make your stay even more fun, we offer free kayaks when you stay two or more nights. Nehalem Bay offers some of the calmest water on the coast. In the morning, the bay is often as smooth as glass, making it the perfect opportunity for kids and novice paddlers to get out and enjoy nature.

Life jackets and instruction are provided, along with assistance in launching. We have single, and tandem kayaks; both are very stable and simple to operate. It’s a wonderful way to explore the bay and discover the wildlife of the area. Frequent sightings include seals, blue herons, egrets, eagles, river otters, cormorants, ducks, kingfishers, Roosevelt elk and more depending on the season.

Tour wetland areas and spend hours and hours out on the water.  You can paddle up to the next town of Nehalem and hop out for a fantastic bowl of various fish chowders and homemade ice cream at The Buttercup, or wander around Nehalem antique stores.

 There are plenty of kayaks; you don’t have to reserve them.
