Cruise Ship

The Port of Astoria has been a port of call for cruise ships since 1982. Staff members are well-versed in the needs of cruise operators, and have updated to the latest security requirements by the U. S. Coast Guard.

In addition, security infrastructure in place meets all levels of MARSEC, and trained Port of Astoria personnel assist cruise ship security staff as requested.

Cruise operators find the facilities at the Port of Astoria meet all current and future needs, the citizens friendly and accommodating, and the beauty of the area unsurpassed. This winning combination has resulted in the growth in the number of ships making Astoria a port of call.

A deep water port that can accommodate the industry’s largest vessels, located only 14 miles from the mouth of the Columbia River.

Visitors or passengers with disabilities may request special pick-up/ drop-off accommodations.  Please contact our Terminal Services at or call 503-741-3300 to make special arrangements prior to the vessel's day of arrival.
