Silversea Expedition Cruises A Astoria, Oregon

Astoria, Oregon

Astoria is a quaint little town located along the Oregon coast. It is extremely picturesque with miles of secluded beaches, sand dunes, crashing waves, lighthouses and towering forests. The town itself is a unique combination of rustic fishing village with Victorian-era houses tucked into the hills overlooking the southern shores of the mouth of the Columbia River. It was the first permanent United States settlement on the Pacific coast, established in 1811, and was home to the first U.S. post office west of the Rocky Mountains. View more

The city was named after the American investor John Jacob Astor, founder of the American Fur Company. Astoria has been through several boom and bust times, with the collapse of both the Columbia River fishery and Oregon timber industry. Today, it is considered a cultural haven, often referred to as “little San Francisco.” Several movies have been filmed in Astoria, including The Goonies, Short Circuit, Kindergarten Cop, Free Willy, Free Willy 2, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III, Into the Wild, and The Guardian

Excursions depuis Astoria, Oregon

Historic Astoria

Discover the splendid history and landmarks of Astoria during this scenic, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Astoria Column

Depart the pier for the short drive to the Astoria Column. This 125-foot (38-metre) tall concrete and steel structure stands atop Coxcomb Hill, and features a cast-iron, 164-step staircase leading to the Observation Deck. An optional visit to the top of the column is rewarded with majestic views of Astoria, the Pacific Ocean and snow-capped volcanoes of the Cascade Range.


Fort Clatsop

Next, re-board the school bus and head to the Lewis and Clark National Historical Park. Upon arrival, take a tour of Fort Clatsop, a replica of the seven-room fort built by members of the Lewis and Clark expedition after realizing their goal of reaching the Pacific. Rangers and re-enactors are on-hand to answer any questions.


Columbia River Maritime Museum

Your next stop is the Columbia River Maritime Museum. Located on Astoria's historic waterfront, the museum features one of the most extensive collections of nautical artefacts on the west coast, including the Lightship Columbia. Following your visit, re-board your coach for the short drive back to the pier. En route, take a scenic drive through Astoria. Pass by picturesque Victorian- and Queen Anne-style homes and churches, Uniontown and the Doughboy Monument.


Please note: This tour involves a minimal amount of walking for approximately 133 yards (about 122 metres), with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the school bus and 12 steps at the sites visited. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Lightweight, comfortable clothing, flat, closed-toe walking shoes and sunscreen are recommended. Guests must be at least 12 years old to participate on this tour. The tour sequence may vary. Space on this tour is very limited; we suggest you book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Mount St. Helens National Monument

Upon arrival at the monument, take in spectacular panoramic views of Mount St. Helens, including craters, the lava dome and blast zone. On the morning of May 18, 1980, the 9,000-foot (2,743-metre) tall Mount St. Helens violently erupted and blew the top off of the mountain, hurled volcanic ash 15 miles (24 kilometres) into the air and flattened 150 square miles (388 square kilometres) of forest. Today, much of the blast zone is still grey ash, and the jagged outline of the crater is clearly visible as a reminder of just how powerful Earth's forces can be.

Wine & Seafood Tasting

Take advantage of Oregon's bounty and join us for a fresh seafood cooking demonstration and wine tasting at the famous Baked Alaska restaurant with Chef Christopher Holen.


Your three-hour tour combines the best of both (wine tasting participants must be 21 years of age or over). Although the wine industry in Oregon is only 40 years old, on a national scale, the state ranks third in the number of wineries and is the fourth largest in wine volume. However, Oregon wineries are small and produce only 5,000 cases a year of small-batch artisan wines.


Depart the pier in a school bus for the short ride to the Baked Alaska. On arrival the restaurant's Chef Christopher Holen will filet fresh salmon while discussing the various salmon species of the region. He will then demonstrate the proper way to cook salmon and make a quick sauce for accompaniment. The chef always comes up with something special for each group in addition to salmon to truly define Northwest ingredients. A sampling will be served up for all to try and you may even have the chance to get hands on. Chef Holen will also bring along some of his secret ingredients and tools from Astoria's premier kitchenware shop, "Mise en Place" kitchenware to demonstrate for the group. Items will be available for purchase. More than just a cooking demonstration, the chef will entertain, educate and inspire you to try a recipe or two when you get back home.


Once complete, you will go on a short tour of Astoria, drive by picturesque homes, and up to the Astor Column. From the highest point in Astoria you will enjoy a 360 degree view of the city. On you tour you will be treated to stories about Astoria's colorful past and historically important past.


Your tour concludes back at the pier.

This tour is suitable for guests with limited mobility and those who utilize a wheelchair. Lightweight, comfortable clothing, flat, closed-toe walking shoes and sunscreen are recommended.

Battery Mishler and Museum
