Cosa farete

Join me on 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.
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.
You will be asked to sign a liability release prior to boarding.

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, 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.

We were gifted this experience and didn’t know what to expect, but Scott and his boat were lovely! Scott took us up the Willamette River and shared stories about the river, the region’s history, and his experiences. He got us up close and personal with so many animals! We saw osprey, bald eagle, hawks, vultures, swifts, deer, coyote, and other animals. A highlight was getting to see an osprey catch a fish, then get dive bombed by a bald eagle, do evasive maneuvers and escape with the fish. So cool! And Scott slowed the boat and got us close up to see all of this in real time. Amazing! Scott is super knowledgeable and has a very calm easy going vibe. He was a fire boat captain for many years and he definitely carries that first responder cool calm and collected energy with him still. He’s also warm and engaging. We went with my MIL who has some mobility issues and Scott was great about making sure she could access everything and felt comfortable getting on/off the boat. The boat is outstanding - high end, scrupulously clean, fast, well equipped, and fun. The engines are insane! The jet boat is really unusual and custom built for this area - it a very fast, low, flat boat that can get into the Willamette’s shallowest areas, which makes it one of the few boats out past the deep section in Newberg. It felt like we had the river to ourselves for a lot of the trip. We had a fabulous time, and it was so relaxing to be out on the river, enjoying nature, and seeing a part of Oregon that’s not easy to see unless you’re in a kayak. We enjoyed the experience so much we are booking again for when our friends come out this summer. 10/10 would highly recommend!

Amazing afternoon with Scott! This was a birthday/Mother’s Day gift for my PDX family. I wanted to provide them with an experience and the idea of a ride with Scott on the Willamette river sounded perfect, and it was! Scott connected with me after the booking to ask how he can make the day enjoyable for all. I really appreciated that touch and felt like they would be in great hands. I love that Scott has rescue experience and knew this would be a “safety first” outing, so my 77yo mother would be comfortable. Everyone else was game for adventure. After the day I heard so many praises from my family. Everyone loved the boat and Scott. My brothers are already talking about next time. We’ll definitely join Scott again. Definitely planning for my husband and I to enjoy the ride next time we’re in town. Do not hesitate to book with Scott. Great experience!!!

So so much fun. I felt At ease and at home on the river. Like Captian Scott says with a Twist , “the ones who respect the river, will get respect from the river” truly magical!

If you’re even considering booking this, DO IT. Captain Scott is amazing and so knowledgeable. The Willamette River is so unpredictable with depth and Scott is an expert at navigating it. He will tailor this experience to you so be sure to let him know wha you want! Cruising on the river only? Can totally be arranged. We had him stop at a winery. We purchased a bottle and he brought a blanket, snacks, and glasses for us to enjoy on a private beach he pulled up on! Book this!!
