Columbia River Gorge Tour w/Sternwheeler Cruise on the Columbia

My Chauffeur will take you to the Sternwheeler Columbia Gorge in Cascade Locks and make it a 3/4 or full-day event!  Enjoy an authentic riverboat experience through the scenic Columbia River Gorge aboard this classic paddle wheel style boat.

Take a break and invite friends, relatives visiting town, coworkers, or clients to unwind and relax with you in style. Enjoy two distinct, plush modes of travel - starting in a limousine and finishing the trip by Sternwheeler. We will  pick you up at your downtown hotel or business or your private residence and take you on a tour of the Gorge and deliver you to the Sternwheeler in Cascade Locks. Upon arrival, board the Sternwheeler to spend two to five hours cruising the "Historic Columbia River Scenic Waterway" enjoying appetizers & cocktails, delicious Northwest buffet, sparkling wine and live entertainment.

Experience the history of the Columbia River Gorge and learn about the Lewis and Clark Expedition.  Glide past such natural and historic landmarks as Multnomah Falls, Beacon Rock, Bonneville Locks and Dam, and many others...  Watch Native American tribes fish from their legendary platforms as they have for centuries.  After the fun in the sun, enjoy a relaxing limousine ride back to your pick up point. Safe to say, the only hard part of this half-day River adventure is that it eventually has to end.

The Sternwheeler Columbia Gorge is an authentic triple-deck paddle wheeler, a replica of boats that cruised the waters in the Columbia River in the late 1800s. Max. 47 persons. Our concierge is available to help plan your tour. Terms/Conditions apply to all cruise options.
