This activity will end right where it started.
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.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Director Park
Our central meeting location and pick up point! A beautiful, urban park in the middle of Downtown Portland.
Duration: 5 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
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.
Duration: 40 minutes
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Haystack Rock
After leaving the Ecola State Park, we will be sure to visit Haystack Rock, a sea stack just off the shore of Cannon Beach made famous by its resemblance to its namesake. Claimed to be the third tallest “intertidal” structure in the world, it is a huge basalt rock that was formed by lava flows over 15 million years ago! Here we’ll walk along the sandy beach, watch beautiful birds circle the rock, and if we’re lucky and the tide is out, we’ll view many species of marine wildlife in their natural tide pool habitat.
Duration: 30 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Cannon Beach
The town of Cannon Beach will be the backdrop of our lunch stop for the day. Guests will disperse for free time and are able to take their pick of several small-town eateries, each boasting their own eclectic menus.
Duration: 1 hour 
Admission Ticket Free
Pass By:  
Oregon Coast Highway 101
For the afternoon, we'll head south on the famous Pacific Coast Scenic Byway (Highway 101) to explore more beautiful coastal shores.
Stop At:  
Neahkahnie Mountain
Upon Neahkahnie Overlook, we’ll stop to enjoy stunning views along the highest drive-able point along the Oregon coast!
Duration: 10 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Oswald West State Park
We'll journey to Oswald West State Park, aptly named after the Oregon Governor Oswald West. Governor West is credited with ensuring our vast Oregon coastline would remain open for public use. Our stop in the state park will be tide and group dependent. We may opt to take a short, forested hike following along Short Sand Creek which opens to a driftwood stacked coastline known as Smugglers Cove. A variable from this stop may be a short visit to Hug Point if the tides are low. Here, we are typically able to walk around the point to view a small coastal waterfall!
Duration: 45 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Director Park
We'll the end the day arriving back to downtown Portland with a drop off back in Director Park.

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

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.

Our trip was absolutely fantastic!! We had beautiful weather the whole time, and the views were incredible! Our guide, Sam, was personable, knowledgeable, and all-around awesome! I would wholeheartedly recommend this tour to anyone interested in seeing more of Oregon’s coast without worrying about navigating everything personally, and also while learning a ton of interesting things along the way, from restaurant recommendations to Oregon history to Twilight movie fun facts. Despite a vehicle mishap, Sam handled everything like a pro. I would go on another tour with her anytime!!

I will really remember the beautiful and dramatic scenery of the Oregon coastline. The cliffs along the beaches of the Pacific Ocean were spectacular to view. I enjoyed the fact that we made a lengthier stop at Cannon Beach to have enough time to strong along the beach there and get closer to the iconic Haystack Rock. The drive along the coast was very comfortable in the newer-type van that our guide was driving.

We absolutely loved our tour! Our tour guide David was awesome! This is the way to travel if you don’t want to worry about renting a car or paying outrageous prices to explore new places. Our tour guide was able to take us to beautiful serene places and give us so many interesting facts about each of them. My mom told our guide that she loved trees and he took us to a bonus location where we saw what used to be the oldest tree in Oregon. The whole thing was such a neat experience!
