We loved our three hour boat ride on the Columbia River and a neighboring tributary. The morning water was calm and we saw seals, osprey, bald eagles and other birds. Captain Chris knew lots about nature and history and answered all our questions abut the area.
Captain Chris was really nice, relaxed, friendly, funny and answered all of our questions. He was so easy-going that it was like being out on the boat with your friends. We learned so many interesting things about where the Columbia River meets the Pacific Ocean!!! During high tide the Pacific Ocean actually reverses the Columbia River & tributaries for 80... 更多
My husband and I spent the 4th of July weekend in Astoria and I booked us for this tour for the afternoon we got into town on July 3. We had some excitement as we underestimated how bad the traffic would be going up the coast in certain areas and got checked into our hotel at the Pier Cannery and... 更多
Just returned from a 3+ hour tour with Chris. Wow...what a wonderful experience! Learned so much about the history of Astoria and the Columbia River. Saw osprey, eagles, herons on a warm and sunny day. Chris is a wonderful host and very knowledgeable. Made me feel right at home on his vessel. Have to rate this experience one of my... 更多
Astoria was a stop on our cruise-we didn't have much time and wanted to do something a little different. We couldn't have found a more enjoyable way to spend a morning! First-this is a great activity for people taking a cruise into the area-the marina where Captain Chris keeps his boat is just across the street from where the cruise... 更多
Captain Chris was just as informative and sweet as can be. His boat is lovely. There were four of us. We sat on top with him. Started off foggy, but cleared up. You really got to see the huge boats up close, hear some history about the area, and see things from a different perspective. Saw 3 or 4 eagles!... 更多
I recommend to come with a camera and dress for the season. There is so much to see and learn. Just sit back and relax. Enjoy the faster speeds of cutting thru the water and the cruise speed on the John Day river. This is a time to walk around and enjoy the simplicity and peace of what hides off... 更多
We had a great time on our tour. The captain, Chris, is very knowledgeable about the area and also very generous. We did the 3 hour sunset cruise and had a blast. Its a great way to see the river and learn about the area. We would highly recommend it!
I certainly agree with other reviewers regarding Captain Chris Lloyd's warm personality and wealth of knowledge. Beyond that, he brought out comfortable folding chairs for my brother-in-law and myself since we didn't feel up climbing the ladder to the topside with our bad knees. He frequently came down to us to describe the next series of sights coming up. We... 更多
My hubby and I came to Astoria for the Goonies weekend but I wanted to add other non-Goonies related activities to our trip. This tour was the first adventure we went on over the long weekend and we had a great time! Book the tour, you will spend a relaxing time out on the river with great company & conversation.
