If you’ve ever watched the show Finding Bigfoot, you may have noticed that the show technically never actually did find Bigfoot. (No riots please!) Through copious hours of camp outs, scenario recreations, and wood knocks, Bigfoot still remained at large.
But maybe the cryptid crew just wasn’t using the right method. Maybe they should have tried the unusual approach that cruise company Portland Spirit is launching this June: tracking Bigfoot for seven straight hours by BOAT!
The Oregon-based attraction will begin taking eager Bigfoot seekers on boat rides through Columbia River Gorge on June 15th. The trip will cover seven hours and 120 miles, all in search of the ever elusive creature! Also included in the aquatic adventure will be fascinating views of the Gorge’s other wildlife, scenes of Multnomah Falls and Portland’s bridges, and a stopover at a restaurant called The Locks Grill for “signature Bigfood bites”! (We haven’t decided yet if that pun is terrible or ingenious. Maybe it’s both.)
AND that’s not all: fans of Finding Bigfoot will be enthused to learn that video recordings of Bigfoot sightings and theories as told by one Cliff Barackman will be played for them for the entire seven hour trip! ‘“Bigfoot is the hide-and-seek champion of the world," writes Aaron Greene, Portland Spirit's marketing director, in a description of the cruise. "With the help of Cliff Barackman from, Animal Planet's Finding Bigfoot, we will try our best to find him."’
Anyone and everyone can enjoy the cryptid cruises through September of this year. And with a little bit of luck and the help of some driftwood knocks, perhaps one boatload of hopeful seekers will spy the Big guy on the shore… or - plot twist! - maybe they’ll discover that Bigfoot is actually aquatic and that’s why he’s been so hard to find! New working theory: Aquasquatch? Either way, the journey through picturesque Columbia River Gorge is sure to be memorable whether or not the hairy man/beast makes an appearance.
