Portland's premier all-level paddling club
Joyfully exploring the waters of the great Pacific Northwest (lakes, rivers, bays, and ocean) since 1983

Recent CDC guidelines and statements by Oregon and Washington governors now allow fully vaccinated people to "...resume activities that you did prior to the pandemic." For OOPS that means if you are fully vaccinated, you are no longer required to wear a mask or follow social distancing rules for attending OOPS paddles. However, individuals may choose to do so even if they are fully vaccinated. For those that are not fully vaccinated, we ask that members continue to wear a mask (except when paddling) or maintain social distancing until such a time when restrictions are no longer required by CDC, OHA, or WSDH.

Welcome to OOPS!   We are a non-profit organization run entirely by volunteer members like you.  Our mission is to be Portland's premier paddling club and because of the contributed time and passion of our members, we think we succeed. 

Our mission statement:  We offer high quality trips and classes to all levels of paddlers.  We are vigilant in Safety.  We have fun paddling the ocean, rivers, and lakes.  We are good stewards of our paddling environment.
