Daughter told me about this and I was intriqued. Wanted to go in and do it together, but at the time I lived 300 miles away, so had to work around my travel schedule. The staff are very helpful, it's a very low-key, comfy environment and with an appointment, there was very little wait. Once I was shown to the... More

My daughter and I decided to spend Halloween doing something new and we hit it right with Float On. We found the staff friendly and the rooms clean and well-maintained. At first I was unsure about the tank...settling in and controlling my breathing. The water isn't deep and there's not a lot of room but I was comfortable. I bumped... More

Each time I visit Float On, it's better than the last time... the benefits of floating increase with every visit. I love the peacefulness of this place and the helpful welcoming staff. The facilities are very clean and the provided amenities in the shower - shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, body lotion - are very lovely and much appreciated.

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

If you have never tried floating before you should. Portland is quickly becoming the mecca for floating, at Float on, you have your choice between different tanks... whatever floats your boat... literally You get 90 minutes to just relax, the salt water floats your entire body so all those muscles you are using constantly throughout the day to defy gravity,...

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
