Learning about seafood and the fishing process while being able to see the ocean was a great experience. Seeing the seals and whales from our hotel room was a real plus.


The foods was wonderful. Really enjoyed the sea food and learning about how it is harvested and conserved


The program experience details are accurate and were thoroughly enjoyed; however, what truly matters is the character, knowledge, expertise, and personality of the team leaders. This particular program was led by the most personable team, and I was delighted by the lovely folks who participated. I have not met a group of people who enjoyed the program the way they did, as individuals and as a group. Together we all had a smashing good time. I will never forget this experience and strongly recommend this trip.


I highly recommend this trip for an enjoyable, delicious, and informative time on the Oregon coast.


Recently completed my fourth RS program and am anticipating my fifth in a few months. Have greatly enjoyed learning the unexpected, discovering these I didn't know I didn't know, meeting people are open to new experiences and learning. These groups' personas are so different from other "touring" groups I have participated in. Looking forward to retirement and more adventures.


This is an outstanding program. The leaders were great. They shared their knowledge and also kept us amused. We visited great sites with much variety. We learned about many subjects, from earthquakes to wine selection. There was something for everyone. The accommodations were charming and the food was excellent. This was my fiftieth trip wit Road Scholar and one of the best.


This was a delightful and extremely informative program. It was easy going and in a lovely location with each room facing the ocean. I loved being there in late autumn, sometimes wet, Oregon weather.


What a great program! We tasted, touched, toured, ate, drank and learned so much about Oregon and its wonderful bounty. We learned lots about crabbing, salmon and tuna fishing, beer-making, the ocean, Oregon geography and geology, tsunamis, Oregon wines, and much more. We walked on the beach, in the forest, through the Aquarium and Marine Science Center. We had fabulous food cooked in a lovely Culinary Center. The Inn at Spanish Head is a wonderful unique hotel in the most amazing setting with stunning views of the beach and coastline. Top notch instructors made every day a pleasure.


The program was well presented I will do it again sometime.


Coastal Catch provided us with a look at the NW coast. We realize now why our seafood is expensive and we learned a great deal about Oregon wines, craft brewing and distilling, ocean life, forest growth, and local mushrooms. We were very fortunate to come across a herd of elk in the wild. The Inn at Spanish Head provided spectacular views from the room. But the best was the experience at the Lincoln City Culinary Center, and the sampling of Dungeness crab which we had never had before. Put this all together, and it is a wonderful program!


This was our first Road Scholar experience. We enjoyed it so much and are looking forward to many more adventures with Road Scholar.
