Our Captains

About Scenic Jet Boat Tours...

Aboard the "Kimmy Jo" our captains have years of safe boating experience. Captain Mike and Captain Cook both grew up on the banks of the Willamette River and have spent many days hunting and fishing along it's banks.

Captain Cook grew up running jet sleds with his dad and Captain Mike has over 10 years experience running recreational and emergency rescue boats.
Both are licensed by the USCG and the OSMB.


The "Kimmy Jo" has a full top and heater. Your captain will do his best to make your ride fun and comfortable. During the colder weather and if there is a chance of rain, expect the top to be on.

We carry life jackets for anyone that wants but only require them on our younger sightseeing friends as required by law. USCG requires we carry a type 1 for everyone on board but we do have several of the more comfortable type 3 as well.

During warmer weather bring suntan lotion and your swim suit. We don’t claim to be fishing guides but if you have a license, chances are there may be a ripple that you can hook up a nice Willamette rainbow with your pole or ours!
