I have been coming here for over 20 years and usually catch lots of fish. All their skippers are great and they provide all the gear you need. They even clean your fish for a small fee.

The weather was a typical Oregon Coast day....in the summer....misty, drizzeling, windy and a tad cold. Perfect for whale watching because the whale's love it in Depoe Bay. Just standing waiting for our turn to board the boat we saw a smaller grey whale swimming...More
