In 2013 Sherry and Kevin Perry moved away from the big city in search of a place where nature was right outside their door. They found that place in the Columbia River Gorge. Fueled by their love of nature and a desire to add something great to their community, they dreamed up Celilo Paddle Company, a stand up paddle board rental shop operating right on the banks of the Columbia River.
MCEDD staff worked with them to fund this dream, with financing provided through the Columbia River Gorge NSA Oregon Investment Board. Sherry and Kevin Perry, owners of Celilo Paddle Company, are proud to be serving the community of The Dalles with their stand up paddle board rental service. Celilo Paddle Company will be operating out of Riverfront Park and will be open during the summer months. Celilo Paddle Company provides a quality paddle boarding experience on the Columbia River and friendly service.
