We only launch once a day at our location at 82 Siletz Highway. This is because the Siletz River meets the Siletz Bay and that location and is greatly affected by the level of the tide.
If you want to go at other times, we have to take you upriver. The upriver launch time has a larger launch time. Take the listed launch below less 2 to 5 hours. For example on 9/1 the upriver launch time is from 10:06 Am to 1:06 PM.
Please specify the desired launch time on the reservation form.
