Portland Bridge Tours
This is our most popular tour where you’ll experience the excitement of going under up to 10 of Portland’s famous bridges. Learn about the history of the Willamette River while you relax and enjoy our incredible city.
Leave the dock of your choice for a tour of the Willamette River system in Portland. Can we guarantee you’ll see a nesting bald eagle? No. Will we try? Absolutely! Our eco-tours explore the back side of Ross Island and the Oaks Bottom area to observe wildlife only seen from the water.
Watch the sun dip below the west hills of Portland as you enjoy the glow from the Willamette River. There’s no better time or way to experience the Portland skyline than by viewing it from the river on our classic boat. Sunset times vary and availability is always limited so book early if you have a specific date in mind.
From WWII shipbuilding, a serious sewage problem, to a floating brothel; you bet we’ll talk about it! We’ll cover the most interesting bits of Portland’s river history you’ll find anywhere in the city.
Half or Full Day Custom Tours
We’re available for half or full day custom tours too! If you have a special request, contact us today to book your tour. Popular half day tours include Willamette Falls/Oregon City or St. Johns/Multnomah Channel.

As awesome as it is to tour Portland from an antique wooden runabout, sometimes the occasion simply calls for a bigger boat!
We’re pleased to announce that starting in December 2018, Portland Boat Tours is now accepting bookings on just that!
