The Columbia Gorge is one of the most beautiful natural places on the planet and it's even better from the water!
Wy'East sails out of the Cascade Locks Marine Park/Marina. Cascade Locks is located in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge only 40 minutes east from Portland, OR, and 15 minutes from Hood River, OR to the west.
Typically the west summer wind blows almost every day in the Gorge and Wy'East will come to life when we hoist the sails and head up the river for a two hour sail.
On the way you will travel in the wake of Lewis and Clark and the brave pioneers that came to Oregon and Washington in the 1800's. The captain will tell you a bit about the history of the Cascade Locks area and why it's called "Cascade Locks".
Once your sailing for the day is done you can visit our neighbor, Thunder Island Brewery to get an excellent hand crafted beer and some great food.
Bring your hiking boots to experience some of the best hiking anywhere to discover hidden waterfalls and amazing vistas. The new Columbia River Gorge hiking and bike trail will be 73 miles long and will go from Troutdale to the Dalles when complete. The trail is already open between Troutdale and Cascade Locks.
Did we mention the Pacific Crest Trail comes out in Cascade Locks at the Bridge of the Gods?
