The expression “Happiness comes the way the wind blows”, certainly did apply on our sailing adventure! Loved the feeling of the wind blowing softly on my face, feel of water spraying on me as we sailed off into the Heart of the Gorge on the Columbia River at sunset.
While we had visited Portland, Oregon several times before, we had never taken any kind of boat on the Columbia River. After over a year of staying home, this was a much needed and truly appreciated escape from the grind of everyday chores. Last year I had won the trip from Seek out Seltzer/2 Towns Cider-house, but had to reschedule due to the pandemic. The company was wonderful enough to reschedule all the travel and the sailing adventure. I had several activities to choose from when I booked the trip, but boy am I glad I chose this sailing adventure. If you are traveling to Portland, Oregon or live near the area I would highly recommend this.
The couple who own the boat are very experienced, personable and made us feel very welcome on their boat. We chose the sunset sailing adventure, for our two-hour tour. This could be a very romantic time for a couple, by bringing a bottle of wine to go with the cheese, smoked salmon and snacks provided by the owners. On the flip side, the sailing could be a family adventure with the wildlife spotted along the way, afterwards having their children’s picture taken steering the boat when docked. This adventure has a little something for everyone to enjoy and create a lasting memory. Chennie, one of the owners, takes plenty of pictures for you and quickly sends them to you via the cloud.
We enjoyed every moment, and would not hesitate to book the tour again when we are in the area
