The Queen of the West is an icon of the Columbia Gorge. Tour the Gorge from a different perspective as you venture up and down the Columbia River. The Queen of the West cruises start in early March of 2016, and you can view all available itineraries now.
Begin your journey on the mighty Columbia from Portland, OR or Clarkston, WA via the 230-foot long Queen, propelled by a three-story high churning paddlewheel.
Capturing passengers and luring them in with its promise of adventure, this Columbia River cruise has it all. It was, after all, the waterway that ushered Lewis and Clark to the
Pacific, and showed America what was beyond the west side of the Mississippi. This expedition stands among the most important explorations of all time.
You’ll venture towards Astoria, OR, the oldest American settlement west of the Rockies, glide through Volcano Alley which has breathtaking views of Mt. Hood, Mt. Adams, and
Mt. St. Helens, and witness the wonder of the Columbia River Gorge. At 80-miles long and up to 4,000 feet deep, this popular recreational destination will leave you awestruck. Journey through Pendleton, OR to get a real taste of the west at the world-famous Pendleton Roundup.
From the glittering waterfalls and snow-covered volcanic mountains, to the high desert country, deep river canyons and lush forested slops, this cruise is full of whimsy, wonder, immaculately pristine wilderness, and rich, sensational history.
