Alder Creek Kayak & Canoe
Alder Creek Kayak & Canoe is a premier kayak, canoe, and stand-up paddle store and school.
On the banks of the Sandy River in 1986, the very first Alder Creek shop was born. Founders Steve and Cindy Scherrer and Keith Jensen changed retail storefronts three times in Sandy, OR, before making the big decision to move to Portland. The rest, as they say, is history.
Boasting Oregon’s largest rental fleet, Alder Creek additionally offers kayak and canoe instruction, as well as guided tours. Their commitment to teaching has produced some of the finest students, instructors, coaches, and guides in the paddling industry.
Whether you paddle whitewater kayaks, sea kayaks, canoes, stand up paddle boards, or rafts, Alder Creek has the boats and gear you need to get out on the water. A full inventory of equipment is updated regularly on the site, live-syncing with their in-store POS system across five retail locations throughout the state.Edit Showcase entry
