Your full-day tour of Oregon’s northern coast starts with morning hotel pickup in downtown Portland. Be sure to grab your coffee and breakfast for the ride to Neahkahnie Point, an amazing spot to look for whales and where you can see miles of Oregon's coastline. Disembark in Manzanita where you can spend time on the beach or explore the quaint boutiques in their downtown.

Next, head to Short Sand Beach where you embark on a short walk through old-growth forest before arriving at a beautifully secluded sandy beach.

Then head into Cannon Beach for some antiquing and lunch (own expense) before continuing to Haystack Rock. Walk out to Haystack’s base (if the tide is out), explore tide pools and glimpse scurrying sea creatures.

Then enjoy some free time to walk along the beach, warm up with locally-roasted coffee, and peruse the town’s eclectic shops and art galleries. Your return trip stops at Camp 18, a historical logging museum that provides a window into Oregon’s timber industry. Arrive back at your Portland hotel in the evening.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Camp 18 Museum
Those who want to learn more about logging history in the northwest, or who simply are curious about vintage logging machinery, will find plenty of material at Camp 18. Outdoor displays include multiple steam donkeys such as a Dolbeer single spool, a very early first-generation model, to a high-tech late-model Willamette compound geared yarder that was the height of technology for its day. Other displays on site include a large bandsaw from a sawmill, a self-propelled Ohio steam crane, Caterpillar-style tracked vehicles that worked in the woods, a railroad skeleton log car and other heavy equipment plus a wide variety of large and small hardware. We will make a quick stop here on our way to the spectacular Oregon Coast so that you can explore the historic equipment, use the restroom, and buy some coffee if you want.

It was a fun time! Went to great locations and learned great facts. Wish we had more time to explore the town of Cannon Beach, but it was a good taste of it at least.

I would definitely recommend Adam, our tour guide for any tour. He is very knowledgeable of the history of Oregon and all places visited during the tour. So many amazing places, wonderful views of the oregon coast and other hidden treasures like the Klootchy (Cloutrie) Creek. Thank you very much Adam. We really enjoyed this tour. Samir and Eli.

This was a very nice day trip. The guide John was a wealth of knowledge of the area and many other things. He was funny, and fun and engaging. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone even if you are a long time resident of Oregon. I am a resident and enjoyed the trip immensely. I plan to take some of the other tours in future.

Beautiful Area…Lackluster Guide
Deb_E
, Jul. 2022
Our tour guide did not have a microphone therefore we received no information about the area we drove through. We drove for long periods no break. Also he drove very fast and took curves very fast. We saw the ocean and hiked a first to the water. But not hearing anything about the area while driving was disappointing. I’m sure the tour is good if an operator is from the area. Ours was not.
icon Response from Host , Jul. 2022
We apologize for the disappointment of this tour. We will be speaking with the guide who ran this tour today and address the issues you experienced. We hold all of our guides to a high level of safety when driving, have specific locations where they are to stop for restroom breaks, and expect them to use the microphone headset in the van when conducting a tour so that all guests can hear the commentary. He clearly did not meet our company expectations when running this tour and we will address all of these issues in our meeting this afternoon and make sure he knows that it is a requirement that he meets them in order to continue working for our company.

Beautiful Scenery, Helpful guide
Ellen_F
, Jul. 2022
I’m an old lady with a bad knee and worried that parts of this trip might be hard for me. My tour guide was very thoughtful in accommodating my limits: choosing a place to enter the beach to see Haystack Rock that did not involve going down stairs, for example. I was able to enjoy almost everything, except walking along one path by the last beach, but there were benches and it was a great spot to sit and enjoy the view and breeze while others went further along to take pictures.

Great trip with Eduardo, lots of interesting stories and amazing scenery at all the different places we stopped off at. Fairly sure I saw puffins when we visited Haystack Rock, but a bit too distant to confirm, really needed some binoculars :)

I scheduled to be picked up between 8:45 -9am, but bus didn’t show up, so called the customer care they told me there is some technical issue in the bus so it will be late. Waited at the pickup spot for more then an hour. But bus never came, customer care guy tells me they must have left without picking me up. Pathetic service , ruined my weekend.

We sincerely apologize to you that this happened. I spoke with the Tour Guide who was supposed to have picked you up and contacted all other Tour Guides to make sure that this does not happen again. We have refunded you the cost of the tour.

This guided tour was by far the best trip we ever. Best part was our guide, Adam Smith! He was very friendly, courteous and knowledgeable about areas we visited. It took us almost hour and a half drive to our destinations but we never got bored. He is the best assets to your tour company!! We will request for him when we visit the area again.

I had a great time on this trip. Eduardo was very engaging, and did his best to make sure everyone on the tour was having a good time. The day we went was beautiful, and though we didn’t luck out on seeing any elk like some of the other reviews, it was definitely worth it.
