Relaxing Sightseeing Cruise

We took an afternoon sightseeing cruise & and had a wonderful view on the top deck. There are beverages available for purchase as well as water. The cruise was peaceful as well as educational. I would recommended it to anyone visiting Portland!

We enjoyed the tour of Portland bridges. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The captain invited children of all ages to join him to get the best views. Highlight of the trip for me was seeing the huge ships in dock for painting and repair.

It was with some trepidation that we invited friends for the lunch cruise. Would the food be mediocre? Would the atmosphere be touristic? It turned out the food and atmosphere was great, the staff was friendly and attentive, and the live vocalists did a great job. Later on, upstairs on the open deck there was narration of the passing sites.... More

My husband surprised me with a trip to Portland for our anniversary, which is Valentines Day. His goal was to have an outcome much better than last years trip to Crooked River Cabins.

Took the thanksgiving dinner cruise. The buffet line got a bit congested at times but other than that we had a great time. The food was delicious with a northwestern flair to the traditional feast. A lovely way to see the activity along the Willamette! The service was friendly and prompt!

I count on these cruises for the best way to show Portland by river to out-of-town guests--outside of owning your own boat! The service is the best, the food is good, the view is beautiful and the special music by the crew is upbeat and makes the whole experience top notch.

Took the dinner cruise. Food and service were excellent. Crew singing was corny but fun. Enjoyed the view from the water because it offers a different perspective of the city and the bridges.

Whether you take a short cruise for Lunch or Dinner or a Day-Long cruise to Astoria or Cascade Locks, you can't go wrong here. The price might "seem" high but when you get on board and see the food and TASTE it and get home from the cruise you'll soon see it's well worth the price - So many cruises... More
