“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Food was kind of average but views of the Gorge from the river made it worthwhile. Drinks were reasonable.

“"Relaxing river cruise on beautiful day"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

We very much enjoyed our morning scenic river cruise on the Sternwheeler Columbia Gorge. The cruise left at 11am and returned at 1pm. Hot dogs, snacks, coffee, beer and wine are available for purchase. It was a lovely sunny day and we enjoyed being on the river and and watching the views. I will save up the memories for winter!

“We took a two hour tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

We chose an afternoon scenic cruise down the Columbia River, leaving from the Cascade Locks Marine Park. It was a two hour cruise that did not leave on time because they waited for all late comers to squeeze every dollar out of the cruise. We got back in on time though. It provided good views of the river area scenery. We saw and learned about the Native American fish stands that lined the banks of the river. We also got a close up view of the kite surfers on the river. Not sure the cruise was worth 30 bucks.

“"Beautiful dinner cruise"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

I escorted a group of 23 for a sightseeing dinner cruise. We had a choice of entrees and all of the choices were chosen by our group and everyone was in agreement that each choice was very good in all aspects.
Very reasonable charges for dinner and a 2 hour cruise up and down the Columbia River.
Highly recommend it.

“Pleasant evening cruise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

We arrived late and chose not to eat the dinner but just do the cruise. Enjoyed the different views of the gorge from the river. Went up to the pilot house and even steered the boat (under the watchful eye of the captain) for a bit. What can I say, the Columbia Gorge is incredible scenery. God did some his best work there.
