1-Hour Columbia River Gorge Sightseeing Cruise

Beautiful day. Warm and no to little wind. Apparently this is an anomaly. Love the two hour cruise and learning about the history and natural features.

It was a great cruise, loved going up and down the river and learning about the history. I was a bit confused when we stopped after 1 hour initially because I thought it was 2 hours straight--not a big deal at all, but may be good to warn travelers because we almost got off until we heard that those who paid for the 2hr cruise would stay on and wait 15min for the newcomers. Regardless I would do it again. Staff was great!

The trip was fine except that after the first hour they go back to the dock and talk again which takes a long time and even though nobody goes off and nobody comes on what you haven't seen his pointless. Then they resume the second hour to go in the other direction on the river. They should also be more up front and more in your face about telling people that this is nowhere close to Portland. The restaurant where it begins is 45 minutes outside and you do have to drive which I didn't know until later

It was a rare, we heard, sunny, clear and warm Fall day yesterday when we went on the Columbia River Cruise. The panorama of the majestic Cascade mountains around us was breath taking. There was. a narrator to tell us the facts and history of the area and what we are looking at. The ambiance was one of peace and serenity. I think we all need quiet times like that. I suggest bringing a light snack or lunch if you go on the 1:30 pm tour.

I was staying in Portland proper — transportation to site was very costly. If I had know at time of Booking I would have reconsidered

Pre-boarding photos for security reasons? Really? Why just say you're selling photos? Otherwise a very pleasant trip!

Unfortunately, there was some misunderstanding on my part as to where the cruise was departing from, so we did not make it, Rather disappointing, but I blame myself. The other cruises, dinner and lunch, departed from Portland,
