Looks pretty fun, doesn’t it? Here’s what fellow visitors had to say about their experience on TripAdvisor.
“This 2 hour jet boat trip was wonderful. We have been driving scenic routes and hiking short trails since northern Oregon, and this was a fun, informative, and even sometimes spiritual experience. The captain was smart and funny, and the mate spotted a bald eagle for us. We were a group of 12 (they can take 25). I highly recommend it.” – Lauren J.
“We took the 4-6pm tour on 09/09/15 and it was awesome. Due to there being tons of fisherman we didn’t get to see any bears but I was really hoping to see some Bald Eagles and we got to see FOUR! It was a really fun trip, the guide was awesome and it was well worth the cost. I would absolutely recommend this trip for anyone considering it.” – Joshua T.
“This was one of the best tours I have ever taken. The price of almost seemed to low for all the fun we had on the tour. Captain Rick was an excellent guide! Ask for a blanket because you will GET WET!” – sleepingdogsfla
“10 a.m tour, jet boat captain was knowledgeable and funny, we saw a couple of bald eagles and many other local birds, the ride was very entertaining and the spins added many minutes of excitement. would highly recommend.” – Joe A.
“The staff and crew were very friendly and helpful. We first traveled to the estuary where the river meets the Pacific. The fog was thick over the ocean and we enjoyed seeing seals and a variety of sea birds. Then we turned upstream and headed toward blue skies and sunshine. The further up river, the more pristine the natural surroundings. Simply put: it’s GORGEOUS.” – Elizabeth B.
As you can see, the tour comes highly recommended! Don’t miss out, come explore Klamath river and all its secrets for yourself!
