What To Expect

Your luxury mini-coach departs bright and early from downtown Portland.

Your first stop is at Ecola State Park, where you can take in stunning views of the Oregon coastline.

Next up is Cannon Beach. Upon arrival, head to Haystack rock, an enormous monolith that earned fame in the film The Goonies. Walk all the way to Haystack’s base (if the tide is out), explore tide pools and glimpse scurrying sea creatures. Enjoy lunch (own expense) in the town of Cannon Beach at your preferred local eatery.

After lunch, reboard your mini-coach for a southbound tour along the famous coastal US Highway 101. Along the way, explore the unique beauty of the Oregon coast and stop at beautiful beaches along the way. Stop at breathtaking scenic overlooks, admire the Pacific Ocean as it crashes along the cliffs, and visit other small towns that dot the coastline. Upon arriving at the Neahkahnie Overlook, keep a look out for gray whales while gazing out into Tillamook Bay.

Afterward, one of your last stops is at Oswald West State Park.

Your tour concludes back at the starting point, in downtown Portland.

Ecola State Park

After the morning drive along the Sunset Highway, Oregon's first automobile route through the Cascade Mountain Range, we'll meander through a lush Sitka spruce forest to Ecola State Park. We’ll momentarily leave the vehicle behind and explore this coastal oasis. If time allows, we may also travel back through the forest to Indian beach. This secluded pocket hides away from much of the summertime crowd and is a favorite spot for local beach combers.

Evan, the tour guide, was amazing! His knowledge of the region was amazing! Great day for everyone!!
Highly Recommend!!!
Alexa_G, Oct 2021
The Oregon Coast is truly magestic. The views throughout our tour were phenomenal. Our guide, Evan, was genuinely enthusiastic about this tour. He was very knowledgeable about the land we were exploring, especially the trees! His food suggestions in Cannon Beach were helpful. We opted for a quick lunch so we'd have time to poke around.

Evan was a wonderful tour guide! He made the trip to the coast entertaining and did a great job accommodating the varied interests of the group. Views were spectacular.
Very enlightening

Worth every dollar!
Rachelle_B, Aug 2021
I’m so glad we took this tour. They were very accommodating, very knowledgeable, friendly, enjoyable. We toured with Evan and I can’t imagine anyone better. The views were spectacular and the company was lovely. I would do this again 100%.
Great highlights of the coast
Noah, Aug 2021
Evan was a fantastic tour guide, it's a whirlwind trip and schedule is tight, bit we had lots of highlights and a delightful information filled drive.
Not worth it. Horrible guide
IIG, Aug 2021
It was great to see the coast but I have to say the price and what we get to do and see is not worth it. I wouldn’t recommend this company. The Tour guide I believe his name was Chuck was very very rude. His helper was very kind though and made our experience better. As we walked back up from our last stop at a trail with the younger guide that was helping he came and yelled at us to hurry. We were only about 2 minutes off and already walking we had taken some pictures on the trail because originally he told us to take them on the way back and didn’t allow pics on the way to the beach We told him we needed to use the bathroom and while my mom and i were in the stalls he literally yelled into the stalls to hurry! Are you serious what else would a 65 year old mom and daughter be doing in the bathroom. So so rude! And it was not longer than 5 minutes. He should know women take a little longer in the bathroom then men. But He didn’t care how long we stayed in each point his only concern was getting himself back to Portland by 430pm. He sped the whole way passing cars on two lanes And yes he did get us back at 430pm thankfully with no car accidents. I had booked the waterfalls with this tour company for Sunday the next day and cancelled it because of this guide

It was a good day trip.
Brenda_P, Aug 2021
Although it was rainy and very foggy, we loved the tour. The views were somewhat hindered by the fog. The walk down to the beach at Short Sand was very nice. Our tour guide was knowledgeable.
Breathtaking!
Amy_C, Aug 2021
Haystack rock was amazing, even in the misty, cold rain. The town of Cannon is quaint and the tour guide did a great job pointing out the best spots to grab a hot coffee and good bite to eat. Oswald West was breathtaking and worth every penny paid for the tour. The short walk out to the beach was beautiful and the tour guide was awesome at pointing out foliage that shouldn’t be missed. It was awesome that it was cloudy and rainy. It made the feel of coastal Oregon so much more real! All in all, this tour was amazing in every way. I’m so glad I did it!
Great trip to Pacific coast.
Wendy_S, Aug 2021
Beautiful, rugged coast and Pacific beaches. Guide was informative. Lots of good lunch options he explained well. Coast was MUCH cooler/colder than Portland (30 degrees lower and very windy adding to the chill). Believe the trip info, check forecast for Cannon Beach and definitely wear layers.

Fun and informative
Joseph_A, Jul 2021
Our tour guide Chuck was very personable and knowledgeable. The tour was fun and the Oregon coast is beautiful. If you’re staying in Portland and you’d like to see the coast without having to rent a car and figure things out on your own, I would highly recommend this tour.
Lovely tour!

My husband and I had a great time on this tour. Our tour guide, Megan, was an absolute delight. She had so much info to share about Oregon, and it was nice to be around someone who loves what they do and loves their state. The weather was rainy/cloudy off and on for most of our day, but it was still a beautiful time. Plus, on Megan's suggestion, our group took an extended walk through a forest out to the beach and the weather cleared, the skies turned blue, and it was just gorgeous. This tour is perfect for people who are in Portland for a few days but don't want to rent a car but *do* want to see more of Oregon. Great mix of being in the car whist the tour guide provides info about the area and getting out at stops and spending time there. So happy we booked this!

Meagan was our guide on this trip and we had a great time. She was knowledgeable, informative and entertaining. That is hard to do for a whole day but she did it with aplomb. I highly recommend you take this tour with Meagan. You WILL enjoy it. Mike and Geneva from Boise.

Megan was excellent and the tour was beautiful. The views of the coast and our stop in Cannon Beach were well worth it .
surprise!
Gregory_Z, Sept 2019
We weren't aware just how stunning and dramatic the coast was going to be! AND we saw a herd of Elk-about 12 including 2 young Elk, 1 male Elk and the rest were female Elk(s?). They were standing alongside the road,wow! If you get a chance, it's really worth your time!

Maren_R, Sept 2019
Lovely ride to the coast. The stops along the coast were beautiful. The guide did a great job providing relevant information.
A great day at the Coast!
klilly1, Sept 2019
The weather was cool and rainy, but we still had a terrific day. Will, our guide, was energetic and engaging - sharing interesting information about Portland, the Willamette Valley and the forests we passed through on the way to the coast. The trip was well-planned and I enjoyed all the stops - we had plenty of opportunities to walk and enjoy the sites and to take pictures. Later, when the sun peeked out briefly Will made a couple extra stops so that we could take pictures of the beautiful scenery in the sunshine. A great day, all around!
