Portland’s Float Centers

Float tanks have been in Portland for several decades in the form of 2 Samadhi tanks at a spa called the Everett House, but in the last few years they have started to truly become a Portland sensation.

Float OnWe (Float On) opened our doors in 2010 on a quirky street in the Southeast of Portland called Hawthorne. We started right up with 4 float tanks and then went on to add 2 more tanks in 2012 (we currently have two Ocean Float Rooms, two custom built float tanks, a Superior tank and a Zero Gravity Room). We run our 6 tanks 24 hours a day.

Float ShoppeAt the end of 2011, The Float Shoppe opened their doors with 3 tanks, and later expanded to 4 (a Tranquility pod, a Floatarium, an i-sopod, and a custom built open float room). The Float Shoppe started offering additional services such as massage and acupuncture, and then expanded into a community center to start offering yoga and other classes.


Together, we have brought floating to the people of Portland, running over 75,000 floats between us in the last 5 years alone. Float tanks have been in newspapers, magazines, on tv, and in blogs across the city, and continue to grow in awareness and popularity. In 2016, right across the border in Vancouver Washington, Urban Float, opened their first official franchise location bringing 6 i-sopod tanks to the area.


Enso FloatWe’re now happy to be joined by the newest addition to the gang, Enso Float. Enso float opened in February of 2017 with 5 Floataway tanks in the Pearl District of Portland, and is one of the closest float centers to where the conference is taking place.

Between us, Portland has float centers spread across many of its busiest neighborhoods, and as we continue to grow and expand, Portland continues to become one of the float capitals of the world.
