Portland Spirit riverboat cruise, Downtown PortlandDinner cruises on the ships feature fresh Northwest cuisine prepared right in the on-board galleys.  Enjoy beautiful views of our stunning Downtown Portland skyline, awesome Columbia Gorge scenery, and several choices of live entertainment as you relax and enjoy your Portland riverboat cruise.  There are several different types of cruises including dinner cruises, lunch cruises, and seasonal holiday cruises.  

The cruises are one of the most popular Portland attractions for tourists and entertaining your guests who are visiting Portland.  You can even rent part of the boat for your next event.  I had a birthday party on the Portland Spirit one year, and it was unforgettable!  You can also host your wedding, team building event, or corporate event on one of the ships.

Portland Spirit Fleet Christmas Ship Parade - 2009 marks the 55th year of the Christmas Ship Parade. The vessels of the Portland Spirit fleet accompany the fleet on nights when their cruise route is in the Portland area.  

The Portland Spirit Cinnamon Bear Cruise is a delight for children during the holiday season. "You and your child will be guests of honor on this two-hour cruise. Enjoy holiday treats while a cast of fanciful characters entertain you with storytelling, music and magic. Have your picture taken with the Cinnamon Bear himself atop his magical throne. Make this a holiday your child will remember forever."

"The first annual "Sustainable Tourism Award" was presented to the Portland Spirit and Columbia Gorge Sternwheeler on April 6, 2008 as part of the 2008 Oregon Governor's Conference on Tourism.  The Sustainability Award is the first award of its type for the Governor's Conference, which annually recognizes people and organizations who contribute positively to state tourism. The award "recognizes an individual, business, organization, program, community or region which has demonstrated a strong commitment to conserving Oregon's natural and cultural resources by leading in environmental stewardship and socially responsible practices in the tourism and hospitality industry."
