$60 for a Cupid Cruise for Two ($120 Value)
Hand in hand, up to three couples board the Ananda, toting their own spirits and snacks. Once every passenger finds a seat on the heated and covered deck, the Cupid Cruise begins, whisking passengers away on a scenic, two-hour journey along the Portland waterfront. As soft music mingles with the water's gentle lapping, crewmembers distribute complimentary chocolates. Tours depart from the public docks at Willamette Park and are available at various times and dates, including 6 p.m. on Valentine's Day.
Dreamboat Cruises harks back to a bygone era, sweeping passengers on scenic cruises aboard the Ananda, a 1929 Blanchard motor yacht. This beautifully restored vessel—outfitted with modern amenities such as an electric-flush toilet—features an iconic, whitewashed hull and raised foredeck that adjoins a squared-off passenger house. From this heated enclosure, passengers observe the Portland waterfront's forested terrain and signature landmarks, such as the country's oldest vertical-lift bridge that's also made out of popsicle sticks.
Specializing in six-passenger tours, Dreamboat Cruises adjusts its excursions to suit each season. Whereas winter trips highlight holiday lights and Christmas ships, other outings feature bridges, shipyards, and depositories of misplaced tub toys. In addition to tours, Dreamboat Cruises hosts intimate weddings and memorial cruises.
