Cruise the beautiful Willamette River and hear the blues in an intimate setting on the Portland Spirit. A no-host hors d’oeuvres buffet and full bar are available on all cruises. To avoid disappointment, purchase your ticket before the festival begins. The popular DME Blues Cruises sell out quickly.
All DME Blues Cruises board from the seawall at S.W. Salmon and Naito Parkway, in front of Salmon Street Springs Fountain, just north of the Oregonian Front Porch Stage. Bring your photo ID—all passengers 18 years of age and older must present photo ID upon boarding. All carry-on bags are subject to inspection, and passengers may be photographed.
The cruises will head south up the Willamette River to Oregon City, and/or north past the Port of Portland docks. Afternoon cruises are open to all ages and board at 2 p.m., returning to dock at 4:30 p.m. All evening cruises board at 10:15 p.m., returning to dock at 1:15 a.m. DME Blues Cruise tickets are non-transferable and non-refundable.
