What you'll do
Our sail begins with a cruise across the river to the most expensive floating homes on the Willamette. We then head down the historic Holgate channel on Portland's own "Jungle Cruise" to the spectacular city riverfront where we'll sail under the bridges as the sun sets behind Portland's one-of-a-kind skyline and then reach close to shore before easing the sheets for a fun run up the west side of Ross Island and back to the dock. You are welcome to bring snacks or drinks on your cruise. Each ticket is good for one passenger and we have up to 6 passengers aboard each tour. Private sails for up to 8 people can be arranged. Please note that we motor about half of the 90 minute tours to get through windless or head wind areas and to finish the tour.
I'm Captain Shane St. Clair, founder of Scovare Yachts & Expeditions, Since I first coaxed a beat-up dingy across the lake when I was 13 years old, I've been entranced by how the alchemy of wind and water moves us. 25 years and 50,000 miles of sailing later, in 2003, I launched Scovare with a mission to help everyone discover the magic of sailing. Based in Portland, Oregon on the beautiful Willamette River. we offer local sailing adventures, tours and charters for all! Isn't it time you discovered the magic?
