PORT STOP CANCELLED

The waters were pretty rough in the morning. The pilot boat came up along our ship and the pilot attempted to leap onto our ship. But our captain realized this would be pretty dangerous with the rough water and called off the attempt of the pilot to board. The captain announced over the PA system that the pilot made a valiant attempt to board but that the captain called it off due to the rough water conditions. Most major ports have a "pilot" who is an expert on that particular port. A pilot will board each ship that approaches the port and that pilot will take the cruise ship into the port. Without the pilot being able to board our ship, the captain had to call off our scheduled port stop in Astoria, Oregon. Instead he said he would proceed full speed to our next port of San Francisco and that we would arrive in the evening on the day before we were scheduled to arrive in the morning. Below is the description of the shore excursion we were supposed to go on. Instead we were refunded the amount that we paid for the shore excursion.

Tour Summary

This all-day excursion offers a unique look into the science, beauty and brutal fury of the eruption of Mount St. Helens. You'll board your motorcoach at the pier and travel along the Columbia River up to the Mount St Helens National Monument. Enjoy a delicious box lunch at a beautiful mountain vista and marvel at the awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping views. At the end of the day, reboard your motorcoach and return to the pier with a fuller understanding of the history and the raw beauty of Mount St. Helens.

Tour Overview

On the morning of May 18, 1980, the 9,000-foot tall Mount St. Helens violently erupted and blew the top off of the mountain, hurled volcanic ash 15 miles into the air and flattened 150 square miles 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.

This all-day excursion offers a unique look into the science, beauty and brutal fury of the eruption and its dramatic aftermath. You'll board your motorcoach at the pier and travel 1.5 hours along the Columbia River and up to the Mount St Helens National Monument. Your knowledgeable guide will be onboard to share with you the many distinguishing features of the landscape, as well as discuss the travels of Lewis & Clark. Around the top of the mount, weather permitting, you will see views of Mt. St Helens, including craters, lava dome, and blast zone. Enjoy a picnic-style lunch and relax in the beautiful surroundings at one of the mountain's vistas.

At the end of the day, you'll reboard your motorcoach and return to the pier with a fuller understanding of the history and the raw beauty of Mount St. Helens.
