    Knowledgeable & Friendly

    Had an absolute blast with these young guides! They were knowledgeable, and friendly. Got to learn about Newport's commercial fishing fleet, and more. Great, and fun experience all around. And a great opportunity to support a local nonprofit focused on young adult education.

    Great Kayak Tour

    The guided kayak tour was a lot of fun! It was such a great way to experience Yaquina Bay, and getting up close to the fishing boats and sea lions was really cool. I need more of that in my life.

    Amazing Opportunity

    We live in a small town, and I had no idea my children would be able to have experiences that people in larger cities dream of having. They have had knowledgeable and kind instructors. I have never worried about my children when they were in the care of OBF instructors. Thanks for this incredible opportunity!

    Incredible Program

    My son has not only learned skills to last him a lifetime but he has had fun doing it. He has made lasting friendships, developed confidence on the water and most importantly knows how to be safe. There is no better place to learn to sail or kayak and no better people to do it with!

    Excellent

    I completed two sea kayak classes in 2017, and plan to attend another in 2018. I highly recommend the Oregon Boating Foundation, and my instructor Tom Murphy. You will be knowledgeable, confident, and competent when you're done.
