What You Can Expect

Oregon Coast Tour from Portland

Oregon Coast Overlook.

Your luxury mini-coach departs bright and early from Director Park in downtown Portland. The ride is about 90-minutes to the coastal town of Cannon Beach. Upon arrival, you'll cruise along the town's charming main street before disembarking for a leisurely walk on the beach. Get a picture in front of 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. At 235-feet high, it's the third tallest intertidal structure in the world, formed by lava flows over 15 million years ago.

After exploring the beach, re-board 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. An estimated 18,000 whales pass along the coast each year, traveling south from mid-December through January and back north from late March through June.

Continue south until you reach the small town of Manzanita where you will enjoy lunch in a small cafe (at own expense). You can wander the beach, shop for treasures on Laneda Avenue, or relax with a cup of coffee.

Continue the trip south to the final stop along the coastal route, Tillamook, the pastoral region know for the popular Tillamook Cheese Factory, where you might stop to explore the factory on a self-guided tour or sample some of the company's award winning cheese. Then relax on return trip through the mottled sunlight of the Tillamook State Forest and along the Wilson River. Your 7.5-hour tour concludes back at the starting point, in downtown Portland.

This tour was absolutely AMAZING! Our guide, Parker, was awesome! He was SO knowledgeable about all of Oregon, and even gave us a great dinner recommendation for our last night in Portland. Cannon Beach was beautiful. The entire Oregon Coast is a must see. If you can request a tour guide beforehand, ask for Parker!

The weather was crazy rainy the whole week I went, but regardless, the tour ran, so I definitely wasn't going to back down from the experience. I went with Tyler on this trip, and he helped to keep us all entertained and informed the whole time. He was determined not to let weather ruin anything, so we went to all of the places, still got to see the sites, walked on the beach, and he handed out umbrellas for anyone needing them. Everyone agreed that despite weather conditions tour company is not mother nature, it was still a great tour.

Saw some beautiful sites. Tour guide was fun and knowledgeable. Weather was a little cool along the coast. Visited Cannon Beach, then Manzanita where we stopped for lunch at San Dune Pub, great fish taco's, stopped along the coastline for pictures and ended up at Tillamook where we indulged in some cheese and ice cream. Nice education center on cheese making and a fun gift shop.

The tour was wonderful, the guide was named RossI believe and he was very informative about the biology of Tinamook Forest and the volcanoes at Cannon beach. He did a wonderful job and interacted with everyone. He mentioned that he was an anthropology major at OSU and he had the true qualities of an anthropologist. In addition he was punctual and made great restaurant suggestions.Laura
