Bar Status

The Columbia River Bar is opened and closed to navigation by the United States Coast Guard. The Columbia River Bar Pilots provide their status for providing pilotage services as a courtesy based on existing or anticipated weather conditions. This status may be inaccurate if conditions change rapidly or unexpectedly.
