Lewis and Clark Cruises

on the Columbia and Snake Rivers

Lewis & Clark Cruise

The Lewis and Clark Expedition, also known as the Corps of Discovery Expedition, was the first American expedition to travel into the Western United States. Commissioned by President Thomas Jefferson shortly after the Louisiana Purchase of 1803, Captain Meriwether Lewis and Second Lieutenant William Clark set out to explore the new territory for a practical route of travel and establish an American presence in the West before other nations attempted to claim it.

Follow the path pioneered by Lewis and Clark on an unforgettable Columbia & Snake River cruise, including a stop at Fort Clatsop, where the expeditionary team camped before heading back to St. Louis. Whether you are enthralled with the lush wildlife habitats, crystal clear rivers or rich landscapes, you will experience a trip through an area unchanged by time. Discover the deep maritime history of the rivers in Astoria, the picturesque beauty of Multnomah Falls and the famous wineries along the shores of this remarkable area of the world. We cruise the Columbia & Snake Rivers from March through November each year. Learn More
