The Klamath River is known around the world. It is a beautiful, pristine river that runs from Altamont in Klamath County, Oregon, dips down into Humboldt County, and continues all the way to the Pacific Ocean near the town of Klamath in southern Del Norte County.
You can enjoy this picturesque river from the comfortable seat of a jet boat. Just set out on a two-hour trip from Klamath’s estuary called “Rekwoi” and travel up the river, powered by twin jets. The round-trip tour is more than 45 miles. The captain and narrator will keep you spellbound with fascinating accounts of the Klamath River’s history, Native American culture and the area’s wildlife. You may even get the chance to see some of these creatures from the boat, such as bears feasting on berries and fish from the shore, ospreys, hawks and eagles nesting, or black-tail deer and elk wandering through the trees. People of all ages will enjoy the sights, and you will have opportunities to take incredible pictures. Tours are given between May and September, three times daily. Reservations are recommended, but drop-ins are welcome. Personalized and special group tours can be accommodated.
