We went here for an hour long what watching boat trip. The people are very nice and have a lot of knowledge! They take you out on a large boat with several other people to see if you guys can see any whales. We got very lucky and when we went out the whales were being very active and feeding.... More

Relied on their recommendations for a boat and we went out on a 6 hour deep water trip and limited out with all 33 lb Lingcod. I highly recommend!

We run charter businesses and these guys are first class. The fishing was fun and the Captain and Mate made it more enjoyable. If you have the chance to sign up for the crabbing part, do it.

Dockside and Captain David far exceeded our expectations! What a blast. Captain David is very safe, wants all... More

Went out with my son and husband for my husbands birthday, fishing for salmon. Supposed to be a 5 hour trip and after 3 we came back in because of rough water and I wasn't very happy but I guess safety first. It was rough from the start so I don't think they should have even gone out. The boat... More

Wow, what fun! Fortunately, the Grey Whales cooperated enough that we got to see a couple up close and personal. The staff was friendly and fun and I recommend them to anyone wanting to whale watch at Depoe Bay.
