Each year our Tribal Elders program schedules a bottom fishing trip. We are always treated with respect and good humor. A good time is had by all. The Whales were out and we were within 1/4 Mile.

I've gone out with Dockside on whale watching tours six times and have never been disappointed. The price is very reasonable, guides/captain knowledgeable, and we've always seen whales! I'm an avid whale watcher and anytime I visit depoe bay I book with these folks.

Grew up fishing... an old guy now... and still hooked on fishing. The folks at Dockside are great, the captains put you in fish and most importantly... they treat their customers well!

We had the best time because the skipper knew the water and the fishing holes. The boat limited, the boat was clean and well appointed. Will continue to use Dockside Charters for all fishing trips from the Centeral Oregon Coast.

We stay at the Whale Cove Inn! ⛱
We are from Colorado and are planning on a charter with you guys in August. We were wondering if we can have our fish packed and shipped back to Colorado for us or what do you recommend?

Yes they clean vacuum seal and freeze fish. For a fee but so worth it!
