Curious about the Hanford Reach and the sights of the Hanford site reactors, I joined this tour. What a pleasure surprise! A magnificent nature wonder, an expert captain with interesting anecdotes. Made almost 45 miles (90 miles back and forth), up to the 100-D and 100-DR reactors, for a total of around 4.5 hours trip. I wished it could have... More

This was our third time on this tour. We always learn something new. Ray is a fountain of information. You get a bit of history of the Manhattan Project and can see some of the cocooned reactor buildings from the river. Local geology, farming and industry are touched upon. Usually you see some nice wildlife. We have seen fishermen land... More

We took a history tour of the Columbia River that included information on the rock formations along the Wallula Gap, an informative tour of the McNary Dam, lunch at a nice inn in Boardman, Oregon, and an introduction to the SAGE Center in Boardman (well worth the tour).

Went on a tour of the Hanford Reach area - had a wonderful guide who stopped so we could take lots of photos and he was very informative. This tour is definitely worth your time and money! The customer service is outstanding as well!

We made an overnight trip to Richland just to do the Hanford Reach Jet Boat Tour and it was totally worth it. Our boat captain was a wonder - pleasant and well versed in all things Hanford. He was quick to spot a variety of wildlife along the river and made sure that we all had a chance to view... More

It was an early morning start but our party was very happy with the tour. The guide was informative and had keen eyes. He spotted a great deal of wildlife along the river and was very adept at approaching them without disturbing them. We had a great day and learned so much about the history of this area where we...

It's been a couple of years ago, but we thoroughly enjoyed the jet boat tour to Hanford Reach and the White Bluffs. The guide's information all along the way was very interesting as were the bird rookeries, the history of Hanford, etc. Well worth the money spent for us! (we've been on it twice in 10 years)

We travelled to the Tri-Cities for our anniversary and we had set up the jetboat trip as the centerpoint of our trip. We went out and bough binoculars and had our lunch all ready. We then get a call at 7AM, an hour before our excursion was set to leave, to tell us that the trip is off because we... More

I had a confirmation of receipt of my tour request by e-mail with a reply that the tour operator would be in touch with me as the date of the tour came closer. I had no reply after their initial e-mail reply so thought all was well. We (my wife and I) waited at the designated site and no one... More
