One of the most memorable fishing charters I've ever had; better even than the Halibut trip I took out of Valdez, AK. Boated 71 albacore; crew was knowledgeable, friendly, professional, and handled all the logistics well. The costs were reasonable and although there were 13 fishermen on the trip, the big Kadaho had plenty of room for all and it... More

The fishing here tends to be better than in Newport. The staff is short on customer service. I got a surprise on cost which is never good. There is no discount for kids. I also got a surprise on my type of fishing trip. I asked for salmon fishing with and ended up on a boat with 16 fishermen trying... More

My friend and I did the salmon, crabbing and bottom fishing package. The rod guides were missing on many of the rods, the captain was rude and did not seem knowledgeable about the best fishing spots. Overall a poor value for the high price of the trip.

I think this was a neat thing that allowed me to cross am item off my bucket list. We saw a whale but I want to return during the migrating season for better views. Be sure to find the online coupon!

We took the one-hour whale cruise to see grey whales. There is a resident group that hang out between Depoe Bay and Newport and I've always wanted to go on one of these boat tours. It was a little choppy the day we went and we didn't see any whales, but it was fun just being on the boat and... More

This was a one hour adventure, not too far off shore, looking for whales. Before long, we spotted one lone gray whale staying close to shore. We were tracking the whale as it went south along the shore line by watching for the mist of water coming from it's spout as it surfaced. Suddenly, the whale just disappeared only to... More

I found this guys online and what attracted me to their service is that they update their website daily with the "Whale watch report" and whether or not the weather is good to go out to sea. We were so lucky! The whale we found was playful and friendly and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Finding a... More
