The Coos Bay “North”, “South” and “East” tours are about two hours long with no planned stops. Bottled water is provided upon request, and passengers are encouraged to bring any food or beverages aboard they wish.
Our Coos Bay “North” tour is a combination of vibrant industrial waterfront and serine estuary. On one side of the Bay is the working Port of Coos Bay and North Bend lined with tug boats, lumber barges, wood chip ships, and a Coast Guard Cutter, while on the other side you will get close-up view of Coos Bay’s estuary system. Once around North Bend, we’ll pass under the iconic Conde McCullough Bridge. Just beyond the bridge, we’ll make the turn around a historic pivoting railroad bridge.
If the wind is howling out of the North as it does throughout the summer months you can choose to take the “South” tour up Isthmus Slough. You’ll get a glimpse into Coos Bay’s lesser-seen Eastside industrial waterfront and the Isthmus Slough tidal estuary.
Our “East” tour goes up the Coos River toward Allegany. This is a nice option for those who want to get out of the wind and It’s usually much warmer inland.
All three tours offer wonderful views and a unique perspective of Oregon’s Bay Area.
