What You Can Expect

Oregon Coast Day Trip: Cannon Beach and Haystack Rock

Beautiful view from Ecola State Park

Your 9-hour tour of Oregon’s northern coast starts with early-morning hotel pickup in downtown Portland. Be sure to grab your coffee and breakfast for the 2-hour ride to Neahkahnie Point, an amazing spot to look for whales and where you can see 30 miles of Oregon's coastline! Disembark in Manzanita where you can spend time on the beach or explore the quaint boutiques in their downtown.

Next, head to Short Sand Beach where you will walk for 1/4 mile through an old growth forest before arriving at a beautifully secluded sandy beach. Then head into Cannon Beach for some antiquing and lunch (own expense) before continuing to Haystack Rock. Walk out to Haystack’s base (if the tide is out), explore tide pools and glimpse scurrying sea creatures. Then enjoy some free time to walk along the beach, warm up with locally-roasted coffee, and peruse the town’s eclectic shops and art galleries. Your return trip stops at Camp 18, a historical logging museum that provides a window into Oregon’s timber industry. You’ll arrive back at your Portland hotel in the evening.

Our tour guide was phenomenal. She provide us with numerous data - about trees, rock formations, area geography, history, and many other information. The weather was extremely foggy so limited what coast line was visible. So added a cheese factory and a wine tour to compensate for the weather. What an extremely delightful day.

The guide was very knowledgeable and flexible. When rain and fog closed off one of our viewing stops she asked what we might want to do. Then she took us to a cheese factory and a winery. We got to see the coast and when the weather turned we were able to see other sites which were great.

An amazing experience with beautiful lanscapes. Even though it was raining, the sights were amazing. Our guide Ed was very friendly and knowledgable and made sure everyone are comfortable. We saw stopped at some view points, walked through the forest in a wonderful and easy to walk trail, spend a lot of time at the beach, and visited some small towns. I highly recommend!

This is the way to see Astoria and Cannon Beach. The tour was everything we hoped for. The guide was excellent and the time we spent in each place was perfect. My wife and I often comment that we were delighted we booked this tour.

This was a wonderful tour despite the fog on the coast that day. The drive to and from was beautifully scenic with the array of fall colors. Also exciting was the view of both Mt. Rainier and Mt. St. Helens we saw at a lookout. The view of the beach from Ecola Park was mystical with the fog and the rocks of Cannon Beach. Cannon Beach was a treat to walk through and a close up of the fog shrouded Haystack Rock was spectacular and unforgettable! We also got to see the sea otters on the pier in Astoria. In all it was a great trip with great people in the van but particularly outstanding was our guide, Eddie. A more pleasant and knowledgeable guide would be hard to find. He helped make this a very memorable day. I would recommend this for everyone.

This tour was amazing. Definitely a must for anyone who has never been to Oregon before. My tour guide, Gunnar, was amazing. He was so knowledgable and definitely tried to give our group a great experience. I do wish I spent more time in the actual town of Cannon Beach because it was so adorable, but I was happy that I got to spend a lot of time in Ecola Park and on the actual sand of Cannon Beach. I highly recommend this tour.

The trip was excellent and very enjoyable. It does take more time to travel to the coast and back from Portland than advised.

This was a beautiful trip! The scenery is incredible. Loved Cannon Beach! The Maritime Museum in Astoria was very well done. Our guide, Eddie, was extremely knowledgeable and very kind and helpful to all on this trip.
