I'm a newbie to floating but I have tried it twice now, first time using a Groupon deal to feel out whether I would like it, and then a 2nd time at full price since then. The facility is great... it's kept clean, your float room is private with your own shower, a lock on the door, etc. Everyone is... More

First of all let me say that I am "King Skeptic". In fact, I did several hours of internet research just to prove to myself it wasn't worth my time. My research (mostly university studies) showed that there actually were real benefits to floating. Now, keep in mind... there will be people who will talk to you about the benefits... More

I heard about floating from a friend so I decided to give it a try. Although I didn't get all the benefits that are touted, I know some of that was from "First Timer's Jitters." I will definitely be going back to see what a second float is like now that I know better what to expect. A couple of... More

If you've never tried a saltwater float, what are you waiting for? Float on is nothing fancy on the outside, but absolutely amazing when you get into your private room. Two new rooms (1&2, I think) were wonderful. The tubs were big and the showers very nice. I was nervous about being claustrophobic but my worries were for nothing. You... More

We'd never heard of floating before and after reading up, knew that we'd have to give this a shot. The folks there are super nice, very laid back. It was relaxing, to say the least, and we'd have done it again if we were there longer. Book the late nights for a chance of staying in longer. I did the... More

Float On was one of the main reasons my daughter & I went to Portland and we weren't disappointed. We booked the Ocean Room tanks which are large and not as claustrophobic as I imagine the regular tanks to be. I wasn't sure what to expect, but once I started floating and turned off my racing thoughts, it was very... More

All around BAD experience. I'm deep into meditation being a full time martial arts instructor, however my experience with float on was anything but relaxing or meditative. Inside the tank is hard to breathe, the tank was so small I kept hitting the hard interior walls, and the room the tank is in looks like a dirty bath house. So... More

I have fibromyalgia and for the first time since I can remember all of my muscles were relaxed. I cannot explain how wonderfully serene the whole experience was. The best part is that it lasted for a couple days after the float. The guys that work at Float On are awesome, the tanks are wonderful. I highly recommend this to... More

My son who attends PSU regularly goes to relax. He had our family try it. The experience is worth it. Talk to the staff. They are characters.
