More tips from WikiAnswers contributors:

  • A trip by boat from Portland, Oregon, to Vancouver, British Columbia, is probably the slowest way to go. Unless, of course, you consider riding on mule back. You can drive from Portland to Seattle, in about 3 hours. You can drive from Seattle to Vancouver in about two and one-half hours, plus whatever time you need to spend clearing customs at the border.
  • Vancouver Washington is just north of Portland across the Columbia River. Take I-5 or I-205 bridge and your there. For Vancouver BC Canada I-5 north and a ferry from Seattle or Anacortes.
  • From SW PORTLAND, OR to VANCOUVER, WA: take I-5 North to I-84 East to 1-205 and cross the 205 bridge -- signs to Vancouver are frequent and easy to follow.
  • There is a wonderful Amtrak train that goes from Portland to Seattle, and then another train that goes from Seattle to Vancouver. Very scenic (along the shore for much of the trip) and relaxing. Takes about 8 hours from Portland to Vancouver (see amtrak.com), just about two hours longer than driving. Makes very short (2 min) stops at several cities along the way. If you go, pay the extra money for "Business Class". Free food/drink tickets, bigger seats, reserved seats, no children. Well worth it.

Auto Insurance
Rules of the Road

It depends upon the state laws pertaining to the operation of motor vehicles. In some states the person in the passenger seat must be at least 21 and hold a valid driver's license. In other states the passenger can be the legal emancipated age which in many states is 18 and also have a valid license. In some instances not only do state laws govern such action the terms of the insurance coverage will also apply.


If you would like to do some sailing on the Oregon coast near Portland where can you get lessons on a sailboat there?

I think your best bet that far North is in Garibaldi Bay which is not too far from you. I live in eugene and plan on taking my sweet bluewater boat out to Newport this year which is closer for me. i suppose if you wanted to come down to Newport you could get some lessons with me but check out garibaldi bay first. have you sailed before? you probably want to do some protected sailing first (lakes, on the Columbia, then in a bay like garibaldi or yaquina) before you get out on the open ocean. the Oregon coast is rough and rugged, cold water, can be quite dangerous! Let me know how i can help you out! You could just goto a sailboat lesson website.

ETA: Great advice from the previous poster (BTW, Do you mean the town of Garibaldi @ Tillamook Bay?) . The Portland/Vancouver area is most likely your very best bet. I have crossed the Interstate bridge and seen literally a couple hundred S/Vs out there. Having a bit of experience on the Oregon/ Washington coast and not knowing yours, I'd look inland before sailing out on the Pacific.
