Went crocodile feeding with captain Adam with , granny , kids aged 7, 5, 4, and 11 week old with 4 adults. Date 18/11/2020 and we had a great time and the kids just loved seeing the crocs jumping out of the water and we were lucky enough to see big Brutis 90yrs old. He is massive !!

Captain Adam was awesome with the kids and very knowledgeable.

Definitely recommend

We booked this trip for our 46th Anniversary. We had always wanted to go to Willamette Falls but none of the other water tours go past Lake Oswego. When I saw this tour did I jumped on the chance, we are SO happy we did. What a wonderful adventure! From the "gentleness" of getting on the Zodiak to the ride on a beautiful Oregon day on the water, to actually getting under the spray from the falls, to the amazingly knowledgeable commentary all along the way this trip could not have been better. We highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to have a great experience on the river. We are absolutely going to book this trip again, and this time bring some friends!

Adam did a great job of keeping us safe but also giving us some excitement! He accommodated our timing needs and modified the pickup/dropoff location because of the river level. We have already been sharing our great experience with others.

Loved the trip of the Willamette with Fry's Cruising. You see the river from the roads and bridges all the time, the perspective from the river is TOTALLY different. The trip was beautiful, fun, and informative. Getting up close and personal with Oregon City falls was pretty dang cool.
Cap'n Adam is as conscientious as he is skilled and knowledgable. We even circled back around to pick up a plastic bottle that flew out of the boat. Overall trip was A+

This isn't your large bot tour with dozens of other people. It's more personal and you're much closer to the water. The boat is limited to 6 passengers, which is a perfect size group. We had the opportunity to travel all the way down to the Oregon City waterfalls. I've never see how much is going on there, super cool! I've lived here for over 15 years and learned a lot about some buildings and history of the area.

Many thanks to Captain Adam for an outstanding tour of the Willamette River last night. Adam’s Zodiac boat was well-equipped and he handled the boat safely and skillfully. He shared interesting stories and history of the river, settlement and development of Portland and neighboring towns along the river, local industry, and area fish and wildlife. We enjoyed our time with Adam enormously and recommend him highly for a thoroughly enjoyable adventure on the Willamette.

Captain Fry has a wealth of knowledge about the history, flora and fauna along the Willamette River. Our family of four had an informative (& exciting!) tour. Not only is Adam Fry an interesting river tour guide, but he is an extraordinary captain -he trains the local authorities in search and rescue and has been boating his entire life. (He should mention this on his website!) The day we went out was calm and beautiful, but if it were a rough sea day, I would only want his expertise. We had a fabulous trip.

Adam is a wonderful guide and his boat is amazing. Such a good time! His knowledge of the area and the natural beauty of the area pair up for an exceptionally fun and memorable time. This tour is a must do if you live in the area or if you are visiting! The gorge has never been more enjoyable than when experiencing it from the river, on a boat, piloted by Adam. Five stars!!

We had THE BEST time on the river with Adam! The scenery was outstanding and it was the only way to truly take in the effects of the 2017 fire that ravaged the gorge. Adam is a highly skilled and knowledgeable captain. The Zodiac Rib is an incredibly agile boat and at the hands of a captain like Adam - it was a total blast zipping around the river:)

What a great day trip this was! If you love beautiful scenery, a captain full of local history and going fast and ridin the swells, then this trip is for you. It was a blast riding with my friends, and Adam and his crew were very nice and very knowledgeable. I'd do this trip once a week if I could. So, what are you waiting for...get out on the river!!
