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.
We had a great morning kayak tour on the Salmon River with our group of 3 adults and 3 children. Highly recommended!

Family owned. Tony and Kendal made our kayak tour personable. They went at our pace. They really enjoy and respect what this area has to offer as far as experiencing nature.
Excellent Customer Service
We rented 5 double kayaks and 1 single kayak to go kayaking on the Salmon River near Knight County Park. The owner was a delight to deal with, both on the phone and during the pick up and drop off of the kayaks. We had a wide range of ages, from a 9 year old to a 51 year old, but Safari Town had life jackets to fit all of us. Shortly after we got to the put-in, sheriff's deputies pulled up in truck and asked to see our life jackets, whistles, and invasive species permits. When it came up in conversation that we had rented from Safari Town, they said "Oh, why didn't you just say so?" leaving me with the impression that Safari Town has a reputation of always renting with the proper safety gear and permits.
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!
