Portland: Columbia Gorge and Bigfoot Jetboat Adventure

2. 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.

What people are saying about Portland, Oregon

I’ve lived in Portland for a while, but have never seen it from the water! Scenically breathtaking, made me fall in love with PDX all over again! Highly recommend, especially if for out of towners. (Took my sister and she loved it as well.)

I actually went by myself and met up with a couple from NC and had a great time. The drinks and food are reasonably priced. I ended up having a great time. The Columbia River is beautiful!

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!

It was So nice and the people was nice and friendly. They even allowed us to get off and smoke before pulling off!!!!

The tour was amazing and the crew members were nice
