McKenzie River - Drift Boat Trips

Scenic Drift boat Trips on the Mckenzie

Helfrich River Adventures McKenzie River Scenic Drift boat trips are run in drift boats with two passengers and one guide per boat. The drift boat trips are full day in length, with a lunch stop along the river.


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

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 canals and streams to view wildlife at it's 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.
