Astoria is the home of the Seamanship, whales and the unnatural sounds of the sea, sailing the Alvord Desert and autumn splendor on the Deschutes & Metolius Rivers

Astoria is home to a program that’s launching the careers of America’s next generation of merchant mariners. The oceans are getting noisier, and scientists are trying to learn how that sound pollution may be affecting whales. What if you love speed and the freedom of sailing? One solution is to head to the desert and rig up up your sails there. And enjoy autumn splendor on the Metolius and Deschutes rivers.
