Columbia River Wine Tasting Yacht Cruise

Our wine tasting cruise doesn’t just cover the wineries in the region, but also includes excursions that enrich and amaze. This is the only yacht that sails on the Columbia River!  We also offer very competitive pricing for one of the most sought after rivers to cruise on in the United States!  Our passengers get to visit the Pacific Ocean at Long Beach Washington, Seaside and Cannon Beach Oregon, visit historic Fort Clatsop, climb the amazing Astoria Column, tour various important museums along the way as well  as tour the historic Bonneville Dam and much more! Of course no wine tasting tour would be complete without sampling the local wines at some of the best wineries the Coast, Willamette valley and Columbia River gorge areas has to offer. This we do at an un-hurried pace. Since we carry so few passengers, you are never rushed or herded along as is often the case with larger boat carriers.
