The Best Way to See the Portland Christmas Ships

Christmas Ships Cruises

The Christmas Ship Parade on the Columbia and Willamette Rivers in Portland, Oregon. The Christmas Ship Fleet cruises between both rivers offering the Portland area thrilling Christmas time parades. The Portland tradition that started with one decorated boat, it is a volunteer organization. The privately owned vessels come from Portland, Vancouver, McMinnville, Salem and Hood River areas. Some of the ships owners have been part of Christmas tradition for more than 30 years with many being part of the fleets for over 20 years. Join Portland Spirit to make this your holiday tradition!
