I had an amazing experience at Float On Friday night. I had looked into this zero gravity experience several times over the years but had never taken the plunge. My wife got me a gift certificate for a 90 minute float and this was the night. I paid a lot of attention to my experience both for my own purposes... More

This guys know what they are doing...Floating was just beyond anything that I could've thought. Very relaxing and unique experience, that help open my mind to a word full of opportunities.

If you want to float this is your place. I found the people super nice and the facilities clean. It's very casual and friendly place. Nice winter time trip.

Like a previous reviewer, we wanted to try something different and Portland -y. This seemed to fit the bill. It's run by a few (predictably) laid back dudes and was professional and clean. Kombucha is no longer free, but hot tea was and was very good. The waiting area was full of books on "natural highs" and float inspired art... More

While in PDX I wanted to try something weird. This was it. First time floater and I have to echo the comments of others that Float on makes you feel welcome and are patient in explaining how it works. By now you've done some research so I'll skip ahead to my impressions. The place is clean and not skeevy in... More

Have been waiting to do this for a while and when I found this in Portland, I figured, it's about time. Such a cool experience. The staff are sweethearts and very helpful. They understand this is mostly new to everyone and answered all my silly questions. Clean and private room with the chamber, shower included. Wonderful tantric music plays when... More

Upon arriving in Portland I had not yet heard about floating. But soon I was so curious that my boyfriend and I booked 2am slots at Float On. I spent my time in a room with a hot tub and he had a room with a pod. We both had different but great experiences. The facility is clean, the staff... More

I really enjoyed this experience. The only drawback is that the air felt a bit stale to this fresh air junky. Clean, clear instructions and friendly employees. Michael allowed me to trade my scheduled appointment with his due to my changed schedule. I slept great that night. Don't do too much moving around in the pool like I did. I... More

A float is basically 90 minutes in the dark, with soothing music in a salt warm bath. The time went VERY quickly and felt reenergised and 'clean' by the end. Check out groupon etc for deals.

had my first ever float in a float room--not a pod. it was fabulous!! 90 minutes sounds like a long time but trust me it goes by really fast. there was some unexpected construction and the staff was very professional in dealing with the unexpected situation. Float on was very warm and welcoming. next time I'm in Portland will float... More
