What you'll do

Join me on my jet boat, MatKat. This is a four hour, 44 mile round trip excursion on the Willamette River. You'll find comfortable seating for six, including two additional seats for the adventurous type on the back deck. We will begin by cruising 22 miles of scenic river. Farms can be seen bordering the river. Heron, bald eagle, and osprey frequent this stretch of river. We will travel to the historical site of a river Ferry which began operating in the 1850's. Tours scheduled on Thursday through Sunday can stop by a local winery. This is your opportunity to experience a Willamette Valley wine arriving by river. The only access to this part of the river is by boat. This trip is perfect for celebrating special occasions as well as just feeling the serenity from the water.

Scott

I’ve always found rivers to be an adventure. A river's history, scenic beauty, wildlife and pace are irresistible to me. My first vessel was an inner-tube, then rafts and kayaks. Eventually, nearly 10 years of my fire and rescue career was spent working from boats. In retirement, it was natural to keep doing what I love: boating rivers and inviting others to discover the joy of being on the water - that is why I founded NW Jet Boat Charter. I am US Coast Guard Certified Captain, EMT, and experienced in river-navigation and river-rescue. I look forward to taking you on the river.
