There will be variety of cruise and tour opportunities for folks of all ages to travel up and down the river, and experience what it was like to journey on this historic ship.  From their informational site:

"The Sternwheeler is an authentic 499-passenger sternwheeler reminiscent of the ships that cruised the Columbia Gorge in the 1800's. The Sternwheeler is a replica of the historic Bailey Gatzert, which operated on the Columbia from the 1890's to the 1920's. The Sternwheeler provides passengers with panoramic views and fresh northwest cuisine, prepared fresh in its on board galley."
