Help Support The Astoria Ferry: "Tourist No. 2"
Built in Astoria in 1924, 98' in length, with 3 decks. She carried 20 cars and 155 passengers, making the 30 minute trip across the river for $1.00.
The Tourst No. 2 operated as a ferry for 70 years, with 4 years as a mine-layer during WWII at the mouth of the great Columbia River. She continued service after the war as an Astoria ferry, until the opening of the Astoria/Megler Bridge in 1966.
