I tried to make a whale watching reservation a few days in advance for our trip to the coast but was advised to call when we got there to make sure the weather wasn't too bad. I did and was told they would not be running on Sunday (when we wanted to go) but that the next day would probably... More

Let me start off by saying I have been on many whale watching trips, so I am not stranger to the rough waters, But on Saturday the 15th was the worst ever. Tradewinds decided to go out on the whale watching tour even though the weather said we shouldnt have. Two of the other whale watching companies cancelled for the... More

Last weekend 3/15/2014, I visited Depoe Bay with friends to celebrate our March birthdays. We decided to book a whale watching excursion as we all love whales and have been whale watching several times. We originally scheduled our excursion with a company that had a small vessel but the company called and canceled and said that due to the weather... More

We have had a rare week of beautiful weather and good sea conditions. We had a great time aboard the Tacklebuster. We were a party of six which included my 8 & 12 year old nieces and my 85 year old mother. This was a five hour bottom fish trip and everyone caught fish. Chris our deckhand was kept busy... More

I've been on the Tradewinds Charter whale watch boats 16-17 times over the past 20 years. There has only been ONE trip where we didn't spot whales, and that trip was even better because the (outstanding, understanding, compassionate) boat captain took us to many wildlife viewing areas, with a detailed narration of the many species of mammals, birds and mollusks...

Captain Dustin and his First Mate David on Trade Winds Depoe Bay made our fishing trip epic! At a couple of points it was crazy with people all over the boat yelling "Fish On!" Mike Beukelman and I were hitting them one right after another, both catching our rock fish limit and really a really nice ling cod each! And... More

Booked a fishing and crabbing trip combo trip with 4 co workers. When I arrived at kiosk the receptionist told us that we booked for fishing only. I have ALWAYS done the combo trip since I have been coming here. We obviously got bumped to a fishing only boat. The captain and deckhand on the Sunrise were good. The young... More

I had been reading daily reports for three weeks and was anticipating a fantastic trip. The report from day before said they went south and every boat either limited or almost limited out. We went north and averaged two fish, why? We kept drifting over spots over and over that were not producing, why? I have been on many trips... More
