Offering tours of the dunes since 1987, our professional drivers will show you a great time while you travel across an impressive natural wonder of endless shifting sand. You will also experience unique tree islands, various wildlife and the spectacular Siuslaw River.  Choose an exhilarating dune ride on our Sand Rails or a relaxing tour on our Giant Dune Buggies.  Our one hour tours also include traveling down our Pacific Ocean Beach.  Large or small groups can be accommodated on either tour. For those who prefer speed and excitement, try either a half hour 10 mile tour or an hour 20 mile tour. These 7 to 10 passenger Long Travel Sand Rails have over 20” of suspension travel and plenty of horsepower to take you on an exhilarating ride. If you prefer a slower pace, enjoy our interpretive Giant Dune Buggy Tour with many picture opportunities. Informative, scenic and fun describes this one hour dune buggy tour covering approximately 8 miles of dunes and 2 miles of ocean beach. Climbing and descending through the most beautiful, impressive dunes will be an unforgettable experience.After your dune ride, you can bump and splash on our Bumper Boats, race on our Grand Prix style Go-Kart Track, play a round of Miniature Golf or take a ride on the Cloverline Railroad. We are located less than one mile south of Florence on Hwy 101.

“What a Great Ride!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

We had a great time with our guide Matt. We took the half hour tour and ripped through the sand dunes. We stopped at a few locations and were given information before taking off for more fun. I would highly recommend anyone considering doing this to do so. It was a highlight of our trip.

“Spectacular!!”

Fast Fun and Friendly. Our tour guide Buddy was outstanding and gave us a thrill ride we will never forget. The dunes are huge and enjoyed throwing sand all over. Hang on and enjoy the views.

“Great ride and driver !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

We had an absolute blast on our ride with Buddy. We have ATV's at home but have never driven in a dune so was glad to find a highly recommended company to do the driving. What a blast. Highly recommend the ride. We did the half hour which was plenty as we had already spent some time on the beach. Photo op time and thrills. Was cleaning out sand for a few days !!

“Don't miss this!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Saw all the great reviews for the 30 minute sand rail ride on Trip Advisor and added this to our recent trip up the Oregon Coast. It was $30 per person, but well worth the money. Our driver was Dan, very nice and funny guy. Took some great photos for us - thanks! Just wish the 1/2 hour were longer. Will have to go back. Highly recommend.

“One of the highlights of our trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Wow, they don't grow dunes like this on the east coast. Buddy was our driver and we soon discovered the why behind that evil laugh of his. He seemed to really enjoy his job and delighted in making us say "Oh, no........oh, yeah!!". What an amazing time. We had initially wanted the hour tour, but you need 4 people for it. We were NOT disappointed with the 30 minute tour. We kept thinking of all the people we know that would love to ride the dunes if only we didn't live so far away. Worth every penny. Thanks, Buddy, for a thrill.
