In the two-hour sightseeing cruise, passengers gently glide up and down the river, with highlights called out thanks to the captain’s narration. Guests may hear curious trivia about Ross Island or learn more about Portland's bridges and unique riverside homes.

From 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., guests embark on an aquatic jaunt around downtown Portland during the Friday Early Escape cruise as live bands perform signature tunes. During the performances, participants can swill sips from three full bars or snack from a barbecue plate for an additional cost.

Portland Spirit Cruises

With the Columbia and Willamette Rivers in its backyard and Mount Hood rising from behind a sweeping skyline, Portland boasts stunning views. Determined to give their customers front-row perches to these vistas is Portland Spirit, which launches a cache of brunch, lunch, dinner, and sightseeing cruises that put the city in the forefront.

With a quintet of vessels—Portland Spirit, Williamette Star, Crystal Dolphin, Explorer, and Columbia Gorge Sternwheeler—and myriad private events for guests, Portland Spirit Cruises also customize jaunts for any occasion. The company also operates a trio of terrestrial venues in Marine Park: the Terrace at Thunder Island, the Gorge Pavilion, and Locks Waterfront Grill.
