  44. Daniel Murphy on April 9, 2020 at 9:54 pm

    I have lived in this part of the country for 5 years and I love the magical atmosphere of the PNW.
    I would love the opportunity to take this tour and learn some of the great history.
    Until recently I was working a job that consumed all my time. 7 days a week and up to 89 hours a week. I now how have a normal 49 hour work week and this would be a great jump start to discovering the magical beauty of the gorge.
    Thank you so much for this opportunity!

  55. Josh O on April 10, 2020 at 8:45 am

    As a physician assistant, it’s been extremely stressful for my team during this whole health crisis. I think it would be a great stress reliever when this is all over; plus, none of us have been on the Portland Spirit before!

  56. Christina Hungerford on April 10, 2020 at 9:59 am

    I want to explore more of Oregon and having a tour guide on a boat is the perfect way to do so 🤗😉

      I moved to Portland in 2009 & have always wanted to take a cruise but it never worked out. Sadly, I have to move back to Texas in a few months to help care for family members so I’m running out of time to make it happen. I’d really love to celebrate my wonderful decade of Portland life by enjoying a bon voyage cruise. Thanks for the chance to win!

  65. Carol Cooper on April 14, 2020 at 5:09 pm

    I imagine the spirit of Portland is best discovered by seeing it from the water, floating under its beautiful bridges and waterways. This sounds like a gorgeous adventure to share with friends!

  110. Patti Maloy on April 23, 2020 at 6:49 pm

    It would be so fun hopefully this summer

  111. Christine s on April 23, 2020 at 6:55 pm

    This would be a great time after stay at home order is done.

  112. Lee Widener on April 23, 2020 at 7:01 pm

    I have always wanted to take a trip on the Spirit!

  113. Antonia Freeman on April 23, 2020 at 7:07 pm

    This would be a great way to check out the sights of Portland. And hopefully have great summer weather.

  114. Bronwyn Ewers on April 23, 2020 at 8:21 pm

    Sounds like beautiful escape and great adventure once things reopen back up

  115. S. Gunderson on April 23, 2020 at 8:58 pm

    Oregon is so beautiful, and this would be a great escape after quarrantine. Being able to relax, have the sun on your face, and take in the sights… YES!

  116. Brian Jim on April 23, 2020 at 9:39 pm

    Love to see PDX from river view and surrounding areas nearby!
    in many different seasons as well.

  117. Brian Jim on April 23, 2020 at 9:39 pm

    ready to go. ASAP

  118. Kevin Hewitt on April 23, 2020 at 9:39 pm

    Would love to get out on the water someday soon

  119. Carol Lynn Cooper on April 23, 2020 at 10:02 pm

    I’ve never been on a real cruise. This would be the next best thing I think.

  120. Jonas Trekas on April 23, 2020 at 10:02 pm

    I’d love to have a stress free day from being a bank protection officer.

  121. Susan on April 24, 2020 at 7:25 am

    A fun adventure on the water.

  122. Erica S on April 24, 2020 at 7:28 am

    Sounds fun!

  123. Tim on April 24, 2020 at 9:53 am

    Sounds like a great idea, to go sight seeing with the wife.

  124. Becky on April 24, 2020 at 10:48 am

    This sounds like a beautiful tour! I would love to experience this!

  125. Daniela Ortiz on April 25, 2020 at 8:56 am

    Something to look forward to!

  126. mary b on April 29, 2020 at 4:54 pm

    I’m not an oregon native so it would be an incredible gift to view the beauty of the area from the water. Especially the gorge. I’m also likely to miss my annual summer trip to Wisconsin to visit my family and the Packers due to corona, a HUGE disappointment. A leisurely/educational tour along one of our scenic waterways would certainly ease that loss.

    • Chris on April 30, 2020 at 4:20 pm

      A boat cruise seeing the beautiful river and learning a little history would be an amazing and enjoyable adventure for our family. As a healthcare worker, I would very much appreciate this prize! Thank you for your participation!

  127. Karl jacobson on April 30, 2020 at 2:13 pm

    There aren’t any shows to win but this could be just as fun! Yes,please and thank you!

  128. t_smada on April 30, 2020 at 2:34 pm

  130. Jodi Rosenberg on April 30, 2020 at 3:08 pm

    Thank you for being the source of info during Stay at Home…makes Staying at Home easier.

  131. Kami Kern on April 30, 2020 at 3:13 pm

    I’d love to take my family on either one! Once we get out of quarantine, we’ll all need a good outing, and we love the area and the water! What better way to celebrate! We’ve never been on a river cruise together!

  132. Gina on April 30, 2020 at 3:13 pm

    I would love to do this with my husband!

  133. Clinton J on April 30, 2020 at 3:16 pm

    Ahhhhh a cruise on the Columbia River? I bet it’s absolutely GORGES!

  134. Brian Hauge on April 30, 2020 at 3:26 pm

    I want to be able to show my friends that recently moved here the beauty of the area from the river.

  135. Erin B on April 30, 2020 at 3:27 pm

    This would be great. Newish to PDX and would love to experience it.

  136. Tiffany S on April 30, 2020 at 3:29 pm

    No better way to show family the beauty of Portland and the water!

  137. Anne S on April 30, 2020 at 3:51 pm

    I enjoy being on the water and haven’t been in quite some time. Looks to be a Fun time. Thanks for the chance.

  138. Valerie Skala on April 30, 2020 at 4:12 pm

    If I won, I would donate mine to a hungry family with children. Perhaps social services has contacts for gifting it!

    Thank you for staying alive!!

  139. Deborah on April 30, 2020 at 4:17 pm

    Everyone’s reasons are valid and it’ll be a tough choice for you to make. I’m definitely not any more deserving than some of the heartbreaking stories, so if I don’t win, I’m sure I’ll buy tickets. I just want to see more of this beautiful city I recently moved to.

  140. Lissete on April 30, 2020 at 4:38 pm

    I would love to take my boyfriend and friends that introduced us.

  141. Roy Nifoussi on April 30, 2020 at 5:13 pm

    I would love to take a cruise.

  142. Ginger Williams on April 30, 2020 at 5:48 pm

    My husband died last July. We dreamed of taking this little cruise but never did. I’d love to do this in his memory. Thank you

  143. Donna M on April 30, 2020 at 5:51 pm

    I would love to take my coworker this summer! She’s in the hospital right now and this would really cheer her up!
    We are both #essentialworkers

  144. Carol Lynn Cooper on April 30, 2020 at 6:24 pm

    Come on now. Really. Who doesn’t love sightseeing. I do I do. Pick me . Thank you.

  145. Jonas Trekas on April 30, 2020 at 6:25 pm

    Because I grew up in the gorge!!!

  149. Sierra on May 1, 2020 at 8:59 am

    This would be the best way to get back into and see the world when things open up.

  150. Renata on May 1, 2020 at 9:07 am

    Have always wanted to do this!

  151. Karen Burstein on May 1, 2020 at 11:28 am

    Since moving to Portland in 2014 i’ve been wanting to do a Cruise w/my boyfriend 😍 who had a Heart Transplant ❤️ It would be Wonderful to surprise him

      Would love to ask my fiancee to marry me again on this cruise.

  162. Izela Schutz on May 7, 2020 at 7:18 pm

  163. Shannon Milliman on May 7, 2020 at 8:59 pm

    My partner and I have been wanting to go on the Portland Spirit for years, but the cost is usually too prohibitive. We would LOVE to get out on the water on this lovely boat!

  167. danny morgan on May 8, 2020 at 9:29 am

    I want to buy a Portland Spirit t shirt on the cruise please.

  171. Carol Lynn Cooper on May 12, 2020 at 1:44 pm

    Love the Spirit and would enjoy a ride to take the stress away for a evening. Secondary PTSD from son being in the war.

  172. AG on May 12, 2020 at 3:00 pm

    I’ve heard about this so much!

  173. Leah on May 13, 2020 at 4:38 pm

    New to the city and unable to explore much with this pandemic and being furloughed. Would love a chance to experience this with some friends!

  174. Laura on May 14, 2020 at 3:16 pm

    Because I’d like to see our fair city and the river again when this pandemic subsides.

  175. Carol Cooper on May 14, 2020 at 3:37 pm

    I’m visually impaired and they say I’m going blind so I’m trying to see as much as I can now. This is on my bucket list to be on a acruise.

  176. Jonas Trekas on May 14, 2020 at 3:37 pm

  179. Christine Skorjanc on May 14, 2020 at 4:38 pm

    This would be amazing and nice break from watching the world from inside the house. Great day out fun.

  180. Jen on May 14, 2020 at 4:46 pm

    A cruise! On the River! In the Gorge! My best friend will be here for much of next few months- I’d love to show them our River! Let them (& ME) see something different & beautiful!

  189. Jon on May 15, 2020 at 9:56 am

    Looking forward to a nice cruise!

    • Carla Drain on May 18, 2020 at 4:20 am

      I moved to Portland in 2009 and always wanted to take a cruise on the Portland Spirit but it never worked out. Sadly, I have to move back to Texas in a few months to help care for family members so I’m running out of time to make it happen. I can’t think of a more fitting way to celebrate the most wonderful decade of my life. Thank you so much for the opportunity to win tickets for a Bon Voyage cruise to bid farewell to the city of Roses and weirdos, my chosen people. I may have been born a Texan but Portland will always be the city that my heart chose, the city that truly felt like home, from the moment I landed and set foot on that iconic PDX carpet. XOXOXO

      • Carla Drain on May 18, 2020 at 4:24 am

        Just realized that my comment was posted, unwittingly but fittingly, at 4:20 am. Ha!!!

    We can’t wait to win and get out of this house lol.. I wanna enjoy my beautiful state while cruising around in style. 😉😊
    Thanks for the opportunity 🤗

  195. Trina on May 17, 2020 at 2:24 am

    I’ve never been on a boat. I’d like to.

  196. Roberto on May 17, 2020 at 9:24 pm

    Having been on the river a time or two I’ve discovered its one of the most relaxing ways to waste…. er, spend my time.

    I would absolutely adore winning these. 🙂

  197. Glenn on May 20, 2020 at 12:49 pm

    Even though I grew up in Portland, I haven’t ever been on the Portland Spirit! I competed in dragon boat racing and I love being out on the water and seeing our city from a unique perspective. I spent the past year volunteering in the development sector in India and only recently returned home. Getting to finally go on the Portland Spirit would be the perfect homecoming post-quarantine.

    I’ve been stuck in a small apt. for 7 months now, due to an after-hospital recovery at home starting in Nov. which then continued on with the covid-19 stay-at-home. It would be a wonderful way to finally celebrate my recovery by getting out into the fresh air and beauty of a river cruise, and sharing the experience with my family and friends.

  203. jessie k on May 28, 2020 at 1:10 pm

    I would love to take my wife and baby on the spirit for a cruise. It would be lovely to get out of the house and spend some time out on the water

  204. Al roark on May 28, 2020 at 2:40 pm

    We need to get out of the house that we love doing fun day Sunday but any day on the water is a good day

  205. Grace G on May 28, 2020 at 2:46 pm

    Thanks for considering us!
    Would love to celebrate our 3-year wedding anniversary on this trip!
    Definitely has been a beautiful journey (despite all the immigration hurdles), but we are together and loving the Portland life!

  206. Nikki Hansell on May 28, 2020 at 2:50 pm

  207. Lauren Drake on May 28, 2020 at 3:08 pm

    I would love to take my parents on this! The gorge is one of my favorite places.

  208. Colleen on May 28, 2020 at 3:43 pm

    What a great way to celebrate on the water! If I won I would give to my daughter and fiancé that had to postpone a real wedding celebration, they would be thrilled!!

  209. Brooke Schell on May 28, 2020 at 3:48 pm

    Thank you for providing this wonderful bit of joy and excitement for the outdoors amidst the current state of uncertainty and isolation. 🌸
    I would love to give my 7yr old daughter the opportunity to experience the Columbia River gorge from ON the water! She is a 4th generation, Portland-born Oregonian and I am making sure to raise her with an understanding of just how special the Pacific Northwest truly is. The best way to do that is to be outdoors experiencing the beauty! 🏞

  210. Felicia mathews on May 28, 2020 at 5:15 pm

    I like that, “get a different perspective”. I’m a local visual starving ! Artist and would bring along my video recorder and still shot.camera. thank you for the chance to experience this beauty, long after the ride is over.

  211. Valerie Skala on May 28, 2020 at 5:26 pm
