Clatsop Cruise Hosts, Inc.

EDUCATING VISITORS

Cruise Hosts greet cruise ship passengers and crew at the Port of Astoria, downtown Astoria, and the Maritime Museum. They share printed material, answer questions, and provide bus service to the downtown core area. They answer the numerous questions visitors have about our historical sites, geography, and stores. Visitors need help navigating the community.

WE ALL VOLUNTEER

Over 150 Cruise Hosts volunteer on a regular basis. Hosts receive training twice a year to ensure they have current information and are well educated regarding the area. On cruise day, hosts are easy to spot in their blue apparel.

BENEFITS TO CLATSOP COUNTY

The financial rewards to the community provided by the cruise ship visits are documented and show that every couple who visits spends approximately $175. Crew members also participate in excursions and do their personal shopping along with provisioning the ships.
