Portland Spirit Lunch Cruise

Portland Spirit Lunch Cruise

Enjoy a two hour lunch cruise and an afternoon of fun on the Willamette River from Portland.

This flagship yacht combines a classic nautical experience with a fine dining atmosphere, while the Captain provides entertaining narration on the outside deck. Major sights on the cruise include Memorial Coliseum, the Rose Garden Arena, Oregon Convention Center, and Willamette Park.

The Portland Spirit is a 150' yacht with three public decks, two of which are enclosed and climate controlled - each with a baby grand piano and a full service bar. Delicious Northwest cuisine is made to order in an on-board galley. Several full service bars provide a vast wine selection.

You will be entertained by live performers, including a singing wait staff. There is a ship-wide sound system and a marble dance floor.
