Scenic Drift boat Trips on the Willamette River
Helfrich River Adventures Willamette Scenic Driftboat trips are run in driftboats with two passengers and one guide per boat. The driftboat trips are full day in length, with a lunch stop along the scenic river banks.

Equipment
The classic high-rise rocker bottom McKenzie drift boats we use have been improved upon over the past 80 years for use on Oregon rivers.

Not only can they run whitewater, but in the hands of our able guides these stable boats can quietly and precisely maneuver into the smallest tributaries and streams to view nature at it most prestine.

Each drift boat carries 3 people, 2 guests and 1 guide.

Don't forget to bring the essentials such as binoculars, a camera, rain gear, sunglasses, hat, sunscreen and beverages.

About Our Guides
Our River Guides are all friendly, full-time professionals with years of river experience. They graciously share their local area knowledge with our clients, providing local background and historical information of the river.
