Shop History

Pat Welle started Columbia Kayak Adventures in 2004 to introduce and promote sea kayaking to the Columbia Basin. Located in the Tri-Cities, we enjoy warmer and somewhat more predictable weather than our western counterparts. These favorable conditions allow us to paddle the currents of the Columbia River, discover wildlife on nearby islands, and marvel at the beauty and contrast provided by the White Bluffs of the Hanford Reach across the river from the Hanford Nuclear Reservation.

When Pat Welle moved on, Chris and Dorothy Vowels purchased the business. After 25+ years, Chris retired from the Richland Police Department to begin a new career and purchase a business that came with a great group of guides and instructors who had the goal of continuing to introduce and promote sea kayaking in the Columbia Basin.

Sea kayaking allows almost anyone to enjoy being on the water. CKA’s mission is to give our clients the knowledge and skills to safely paddle and build upon their kayaking experiences; whether they want to spend a quiet morning in the protected waters of the Yakima Delta, or spend a week camping from their boat exploring the many miles of inland lakes.

Most of all, CKA is about having fun while learning a new skill and seeing new places.
