Very helpful staff. Got us on the water quickly and made sure that everyone understood how to use the gear. Nice that the launch point is on the side of the building protected from the wake of passing boats. Only problem is the flood of customers that come all at once on the week nights, so sometimes there is a... More

In the US, Willamette Falls is second only to Niagra for volume of water passed. I'm 65 and not buff, but found it easy and so very enjoyable. The river is beautiful, our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and I want to do this again soon.

A friend and I wanted a fun morning and we got it! It was an easy trip, that was very enjoyable. Friendly staff made it that much better. We went on a week day and it was just our duo! Check this out some time.

Last year we bought a kayak trip up to Willamette Falls on Living Social and loved it -- even got to go into the locks. We were given another trip this year and plan to go again as soon as the river clears up (a lot of heat-killed fish right now, which is very sad). Our guide was wonderful and... More

We managed to get in at the last minute on the holiday weekend. The sun broke through the clouds as we arrived and we had a terrific tour of the river and falls. Having seen Willamette Falls from the shore for years, it's a real opportunity to see it from the water. Blue herons, seal lions, all in a steampunk... More

Wanted to try kayaking out and this is the place I chose. Went on the Willamette falls trip which went about 90 minutes. They put you on the kayak and give a brief tutorial then you're off. Headed up river to the falls along the bank then crossed at the locks. From there it's too the falls then back down... More

Had a friend up from SoCal, so of course I had to show off our abundance of liquid here in the PNW. I had snagged the Groupon deal earlier and what a spectacular deal this turned out to be! In addition the the perfect weather (sunny, no wind) the sea lions and gigantic sturgeon were almost mind blowing...and we hadn't... More

My wife and I didn't have any complaints with the tour, and we liked our guide well enough: friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. We both love outdoor activities. I think we were just disappointed in witnessing the owner verbally abuse his girlfriend. It still troubles me, and I wouldn't recommend this business solely for that reason.

My daughter and I had a great time. Found a great deal on Groupon for a two hour guided tour up to Willamette Falls. Our guide was very knowledgeable, but he let us do our own thing and answered every question we had. I would do this again!
