The Crystal Dolphin was the third vessel to join the Portland Spirit fleet. She was built in 1990 by Aluminum Boats of Jean Lafitte, Louisiana and is powered by twin 500 HP Caterpillar diesel engines. Two Isuzu diesel generators provide electricity.
The vessel has three public decks, two of which are fully enclosed and climate controlled. From the Columbia Deck, you can access the Captain’s Bridge which we invite you to visit while the vessel is under way. The Starlight Deck has teak benches and affords a commanding view of the breathtaking scenery of the Willamette Valley.
We have a high-quality audio system that allows music and announcements to be heard on all interior and exterior decks.
