Highlight of our Vacation

The kayak tour with Tony was the highlight of our vacation this year. It was so peaceful being on the river, and the wildlife put on a show for us. From seals laying on the beach, otter swimming over to check us out, to bald eagles perched on tree limbs, we saw beauty all around us. We even saw two seals fighting over a fish! It was amazing!

We had an outstanding time with Tony and his son on a recent kayak tour. It was a lot of fun and really educational. I would highly encourage anyone visiting the area to take advantage of their tours.

Guided Kayak Tour

Looking to find a kayak rental, my husband and I found the Safari Town Surf Shop. The friendly family-run shop owner, Tony took care of us right away. We were on a guided tour the next morning in the beautiful and environmentally protected area at the mouth of the Salmon River. We paddled close to the ocean, then doubled back to explore the estuary. A seal, herons, egrets, and other waterfowl greeted us on this calm, quiet morning. We felt totally safe and in good hands. Thanks for the great time Tony!

Wonderful kayak experience!

I took my adult son on a 2 hour guided kayaking trip with Safari Town Surf Shop and we had an amazing time! Chase was our guide and he was extremely knowledgeable about the ecology and geography of the area. It made the whole experience entertaining and informative. As a whitewater kayaker, I wasn’t sure what to expect. But we’d go again in a heartbeat! Thank you!

Guided kayaking on the Salmon River

We had a two hour guided kayak trip on the Salmon River just north of Lincoln City. It was our first time kayaking. The weather and river conditions were fantastic. Safari Town Surf shop provided everything we needed and met us at the river. Our guide, Kevin, was extremely friendly, personable and helpful in showing us how to kayak safely. We had a great time. We highly recommend. We’ve already booked another trip and invited friends to go with us.

Best surfing lessons!

My family and I traveled to Oregon for vacation this summer. We all wanted to learn to surf. Amazingly, with their help, we learned in one day!
My girls are 17 and 14. We booked a lesson with Safari town which included a lesson for each of us- they fitted us with wetsuits and boards. Kevin and Chase took us to the perfect spot and were helpful And patient while we learned the techniques. We then got to keep the boards for the rest of the day to continue to practice. We had a great time and it was a highlight of our trip. I highly recommend these folks. They clearly take pride in their business and it shows.

Kayak Tour

We booked a kayak tour with Tony and it was fantastic. He was super chill, willing to work with all levels of kayaking abilities, he was adaptive to our pace, and went out of his way to help us take in some of the wildlife. We will definitely be back, and will recommend him to any and all visitors to Lincoln City and the surrounding areas!

Fat Tire Bikes on The Beach!

My family had so much fun spending the day riding fat tire bikes on the beach! The prices were reasonable and the owner and his son were very helpful and accommodating.

Surfing Lessons

Great local shop. Tons of rental inventory with the best rates (as far as I could find). My early morning lesson with Kevin was great; his instruction was clear and easy to understand and he had precise answers to my questions, especially about reading the wave and getting up once I caught the wave. I’ll definitely be back!

Kayaking on the Salmon River

Had a great time on the bikes we rented here. My daughter and I rode down to the beach and rode next to the waves. So beautiful and such a great experience riding with the breeze in our hair!

Surf lessons! Wonderful experience

My younger sister and I called Safari Town for a surf lesson on our Oregon Coast vacation. They squeezed us in the next day! We showed up at the shop, were greeted, suited up then met our instructor at the beach near the Devils Punch Bowl. He was patient and very helpful. All in all an unforgettable experience!

Three Hour Salmon River Estuary Kayak Trip

My daughters and I booked a three hour Salmon River Estuary kayak trip, and it was great! One of the owners and his son took us up to the mouth of the estuary, and back up the river. They were knowledgeable about the wildlife and the area we were paddling in. They were prompt, personable, and experienced guides.
