You’ll also see different kinds of vessels, both life-size and models, indoors and out on the actual Columbia River, the major river of the Northwest that has been an important route for transportation and commerce.

We had a party of four in our group and we all enjoyed the beautiful views. The driver of our van was very knowledgeable and friendly. We all enjoyed the tour very much.

It was such a great day trip! Jamie, our guide, was very passionate about the region and knew a lot. She was friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend it if you're looking to get a good sampling of the coast. You will probably find, though, that you'll want to come back for a few days or longer because it's such a beautiful place!
