Our clients Jack and Marg just returned from a small ship one way cruise on the Columbia and Snake River. They started in Spokane with a motorcoach to Lewiston, ID where they boarded the jet boats for an exhilarating ride up Hell’s Canyon. They just returned home a day ago. Marg called with these comments:

“We were so pleased. Everybody was very nice. I was a bit nervous about being on a small ship but we all got along extremely well. Captain Jeff very good at what he does as owner and captain. And he’s very nice. The guide is a historian and was very knowledgeable and told us what we were looking at all along the journey. The crew was wonderful, very nice and considerate. Captain Jeff put together a very interesting itinerary without all the touristy, commercialized stuff to fill in the gaps. And, he was very flexible providing the best itinerary for the situation. The food was OUTSTANDING! The chef owns a restaurant in Astoria called Baked Alaska because he’s from Alaska. We had gourmet meals breakfast, lunch and dinner.”

Question: other than food, what was the highlight of your trip?

“That’s hard because the whole cruise was great. Well, I particularly enjoyed Mary Hill Museum and we both thought the jet boat ride in Hell’s Canyon was amazing. There is a portion of the canyon that is being set as a nature preserve. We stopped along the way and picked as many apples as we wanted and the deer helped. They had refreshments there for us.

We really lucked out on the weather. Sunny the entire trip. I was really planning on rain but was presently surprised. I would like to do another small ship cruise like this one in the near future.”
