Situated in the Pacific Northwest region of the country, Oregon hosts incredibly diverse landscapes and waterways. Mount Hood, a composite volcano, is the state’s highest point while Crater Lake takes the prize as the deepest lake in the country at 1,950 ft. deep! It comes as no surprise that The Beaver State produces the most timber in the country as dense evergreens and forests mark most of the state. Boaters can cruise down the Columbia River, which borders Washington state, and tie up in Portland, Oregeon’s largest and most popular city. 362 miles of coastline adjoins the Pacific Ocean. Whether you’re checking out North, Central, or South Coast regions, you’ll find no shortage of breathtaking rocky coastlines, large tidepools, and varying species of whales, sharks, and seals. High winds and choppy seas makes this area of the PNW some of the most challenging and rewarding for any boater.
