ALL 2016 COLUMBIA RIVER CRUISES INCLUDE A 1-NIGHT PRE-CRUISE HOTEL!

USA River Cruise agents would love to find the perfect Columbia River excursion for you and your family. We have several wonderful small ships ranging from 6 to 250 passengers, ready to transport you beyond your everyday experience. Come join us on the S.S. Legacy, Northern Dream, Sea Bird or Sea Lion, or our paddlewheelers: the Queen of the West (120 passengers) and the American Empress (250 passengers). While each boat offers its own amenities, they all follow in the steps of Lewis & Clark, legendary travelers who pioneered the exploration of the West.

Be sure to pack your camera! On your trip along the mighty Columbia River, you will enjoy breathtaking waterfalls, rolling vineyards, stunning mountains and coastal ranges, unusual rock formations, arid deserts, and deep canyons! Love wildlife? The Columbia River is home to hundreds of fish, amphibians, birds, mammals, reptiles, and marine mammals. On any given day, you may spot a Northern Sea Lion sunning on a rock or a sharp-shinned hawk flying overhead.

Looking for an excursion like no other? Whether you live in the Pacific Northwest or have never visited the region, our small ship cruises promise an exceptional experience, on-and-off board.

For more information, call us at 1-800-578-1479. We’re excited to help you book the trip of a lifetime!
