Portland: Columbia Gorge and Bigfoot Jetboat Adventure

1. Portland: Columbia Gorge and Bigfoot Jetboat Adventure

Discover the landmarks for which the Northwest is famous, while listening to live and recorded narration about the history of the Columbia Gorge and Bigfoot's presence in the Northwest. Depending on what type of passenger you are on this sightseeing tour, the sights themselves aren't necessarily the main attraction. Sure, the Bigfoot Explorer buzzes you past the Gorge's greatest hits, like Multnomah Falls, and Beacon Rock, but the objective isn't just to admire the landscape. It's to hunt for the elusive man-ape along a corridor that's historically been rife with sightings. This fun and informative, fully-narrated cruise will have you at the edge of your seat as you learn about Portland, the Columbia Gorge, and most importantly, Bigfoot.

I very much enjoyed the boat ride, but wasn't crazy about the bigfoot talk. I would rather have heard more about the geology or history of the area or just enjoyed the ride in silence.

We had such a lovely time - the combo of the beautiful scenery and fun of BigFoot made for a memorable morning during our trip to Portland!

We did a fairly easy ride of 7-8 miles and stopped frequently to hear about the city. Bikes were comfortable too.

The scenery is gorgeous and covering both rivers of Portland in one trip is really cool!
