  • N8TV Adventures
    N8TV Adventures offers four ways to glimpse ospreys, bald eagles, and deer in their natural habitat along the Deschutes River. Three of these methods involve boats: kayaks, whitewater rafts, and fishing boats, to be exact. The last mode of transportation puts adventurers up close to the water: river boarding, a sport that hails from Europe. River boards resemble surfboards that have been chopped in half. Riders hold the handles of the foam board and ride the river rapids much like they would atop a raft. N8TV Adventures' courteous guides, who are all trained in first aid and CPR, chaperone each trip, providing transportation from N8TV headquarters as well as optional snacks, should clients request them.
