Columbia River Cruise Guide

Columbia River Cruise Guide

Our Columbia River cruises do an excellent job at helping our guests experience life and history in the region. But there are hidden gems all along the river! The Pacific Northwest has so much to offer, from the seaside to the high desert, wine country and more. We’ve put together our guide of things to do and places to eat that only locals know. Shore excursions are good starting points, but sometimes its good to get lost. Embody the ‘Spirit of Adventure’ on your next vacation – get off the boat and explore like Lewis & Clark!
