Choose your river adventure...

We offer three boat tours to choose from.

2-Hour Scenic Tour

Portland History, Wildlife and Willamette Falls

Beautiful downtown Portland and its bridges are just the start as you jet along the Willamette. Watch eagles and osprey soar over the water, see magnificent waterfront homes, get a splash of Portland history — and an even bigger splash — as one of our skilled pilots spins you around in an open air jet boat.

This tour offers a fascinating glimpse of Oregon’s pioneer history and the early days of Portland’s founding. From shanty towns of yesteryear to the dazzling waterfront homes of today, you’ll get a deeper understanding of Oregon’s largest city, including its importance as a major west coast port.

The highlight of this 32-mile boat tour is the majestic Willamette Falls, the largest waterfall in the Pacific Northwest by volume. Our 2-hour tour is Portland’s most popular river adventure!

According to Native American legend, Willamette Falls was made by a coyote who wanted to help native peoples by making a place where they could spear salmon for food.

Did you know the beautiful St. John’s Bridge was almost painted with yellow and black stripes like a bumble bee? Thankfully, City officials decided on green and made the announcement on St. Patrick’s Day.

1-Hour Scenic Tour

Bridges, Shipyards and Portland Waterfront

This quick tour is packed with history, fun, and splash as we take a 15-mile tour of the Willamette River that shows you Swan Island and the shipyards that put the “port” in Portland, as well the history behind the iconic bridges that earned Portland the nickname of “Bridge City.”

As our jet boat tours Portland, we’ll paint a picture of how the car-filled drawbridges of today used to be packed with horseback commuters and farmers would have to pay a nickel to walk their hogs and sheep across the draw.

Lunch on the Columbia River (Tuesdays & Wednesdays only)

Enjoy all the splashes and sightseeing of our 1-hour tour, and add lunch and a trip on the second largest river in the country for good measure. We’ll start our 40-mile journey on the Willamette get a good dose of Portland scenery, then head north to the mighty Columbia River. Halfway through our journey, we’ll stop for a meal at The Deck, a floating restaurant where you’ll enjoy wonderful food in a unique setting.

If the day is clear (we swear, it’s mostly clear in the summer!), we’ll admire Mount St. Helens in the distance. Your food and a non-alcoholic beverage is included in the price of your ticket.
