  • We paid $59 each for Willamette star yaht . Was first on boat. And went to top. No room. Went to front in my 4 chairs. The boat took off and no maritime law for life jackets. After leaving 10 min they talk about it. They life jackets were located at deck stern lacation. Really???came to front and didn't see them. Crazy. No way to get them for emergency. We were told not to worry about them by crew member on boat. Bring your own jacket
  • A wonderful way to experience the gorge like you've never seen it before. We did the dinner cruise, and the food was very fine. All the crew were super friendly and helpful. The captain is a jovial fellow, and a treasure trove of gorge history. The vessel is comfortable in all weather, and fun to poke around. And the scenery, my goodness, it just can't be beat. Even if you've seen the sights from the shore, experiencing the gorge on the river is to appreciate it even more.
  • Very enjoyable tour. Saw lots of places along the banks where Salmon fishing was reserved for our native Americans.
  • You can go out on the sternwheeler and get a great view of the Columbia River.
  • It was well worth the price. The only downfall was the clarity of speech from the captain/guide. He sounds like he has too much fluid in his mouth. Only heard 70 pct clearly.
