The crew and onshore staff were all friendly, courteous and responsive. The boat itself is a lot of fun to explore. I appreciated the historic photos and accompanying text on the walls. The captain provided succinct, interesting information at a few key points on the tour that were just right. Me one suggestion: The concessions area would have provided quicker service with a second person working there. Seeing the Columbia Gorge from the sternwheeler gave us a fascinating, wonderful & unique perspective. And all in two hours.

We liked the ride but had taken an Uber from downtown Portland, and then found that Uber and Lyft don't pick up there. We had a three hour wait for the next bus which only comes twice a day. Luckily we found The Ale House. A nice place to pass the time. Also no one told us not to get off when the boat docked. We weren't really paying attention to the time and missed the second half of the cruise thinking it had already ended.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! I am sorry about the miscommunication. Our Captain's always make sure to announce that if you purchased the second hour to stay on the vessel. I understand it is easy to miss that comment. We will look into ways to ensure that does not happen to other guests. Come back soon!

Great views and friendly staff. The only real downer was that the commentary was lost to the outdoor noise.

I took my 16 year old grand daughter who was visiting from Texas on the 2 hr morning cruise. We both just loved it!. She could take lots of photos on her phone and send them to friends, but also she was fascinated that she could roam the boat, talk to people and have a really good time. She was not bored at all. Couple this with a stop at Multnomah Falls for lunch and letting her "run up to the bridge" all made for a perfect day for both of us. I booked another tour only longer for my husband and 12 yr old grandson and me. It was absolutely super. I will review that separately.

Very fun and relaxing! We did the 2 hour. I gave my kids the option to get off the boat after the first hour but they chose to continue on for the second half! No complaints of boredom! We enjoyed hearing about the history of the area and loved the views!
Best part was watching the kaykers ride the wake from the wheel!

Our trip was a lovely experience. We took the boat midweek in September. Very few people, plenty of choices for viewing the river. A nice ship with nice people. Our excursion was a two hour tour. Basically you go up river 30 minutes, turn around and return to the dock (that is a one hour tour), some of the passengers disembark. If you are doing a two hour tour, you stay on board and do 30 minutes down river to the dam and then return. If I were to choose a one hour, I think we enjoyed the up river portion more. However, down river you do see a closer view of the shore with lots of fishing platforms that were mostly unoccupied. In any case, it was enjoyable. We did not eat or drink on board so I can’t speak to that portion. About 45 minutes from Portland, very pretty drive. I think it was a good value, order from their website and save a few dollars. There is a restaurant and gift shop at the boarding area.

An expensive cruise on the Columbia River. The cruise was worth while but the dinner was very poor this evening.

My girlfriend's and I went on the Brunch cruise. We really enjoyed the cruise! The food was good and we had excellent service by Sam. He was very personable and made sure we were doing alright. The only reason I'm giving it four stars instead of five is because white we were waiting to depart, the door was open and fumes were coming in.

The trip was fun, but we did not ride on a sternwheeler as we were expecting. The boat we went on was very nice and the crew was helpful and experienced. Now we have crossed it off our bucket list and can say we did a boat cruise on the Columbia.

I am sorry about your negative experience onboard. The Sternwheeler was down for about a week due to unplanned maintenance. I am happy to hear the boat and crew were nice. Hopefully you can make it back out on the Sternwheeler one day, we would love to have you back.

All staff were so kind. Loved that you were free to roam around freely. Also loved that there was food and drinks aboard to buy. Loved the scenery. The weather was awesome.
