I have gone bottom fishing with Tradwinds, Newport for nearly 40 years and my wife of the last 25 years has enjoyed going as well. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly, the boat crews are also knowledgeable, professional and friendly. We have always had good luck going with them and see no reason to change.

Our group of 7 booked 2 days of fishing months in advance, a 12 hour tuna day and a 10 hour combo (salmon, bottom fish and crabbing) day. A few days before the trips the boat captain for the second day called to tell us that ODF had changed the depth regulations and we had to change the trip and... More

Booked fishing trip 6 months prior to our vacation. A week before our scheduled trip we walked in TWICE to confirm reservation. Day of fishing trip we arrive and we are told the boat broke down by one lady and then another tells us that we aren't scheduled for that time. They lied and sent out a fishing boat we... More

This trip is NOT for beginners, as it is five hours long and even though they gave us a brief overview of how to work the fishing rods/reels, the Captain (with ever-present cigarette in his mouth) actually admonished me for forgetting not to press a button on the reel when I hit the rocks on the bottom. "We went over... More

We booked a ocean salmon fishing trip and are totally glad we did! First - all of the staff is knowledge and friendly! The ship - we were on the Sea Pirate II and it was the cleanest fishing ship I have ever seen. You can tell the captain and his one man crew take pride in her. The trip... More

The crew was fantastic! Andrew was awesome, as were the entire crew. We didn't make it out of the bay before a GrayWhale and her baby spouted not 10 feet from our boat! We would have paid double for the experience of a lifetie. I lived a and worked on fishing boats in Alaska and these guys are top notch.... More

No whales were seen but we expected we would not since its later in the migrations. Was my first time out to sea , even thiugh I felt a little sick it was still a... More

I've enjoyed several fishing trips with Newport Tradewinds. The latest being this week-end for a 3 hour bay crabbing trip. We ended up catching 4 keepers each for the 9 of us on the boat, and really had a good time pulling pots and sorting the crab. Very family friendly for the older kids as well (think it was a...

I liked the folks from Tradewinds right away when inquiring about the trip on the phone. We orinally signed up for the bottom fishing trip, but weather made that impossible. We did do the crabbing trip in the bay. Our group was small, you need a minimum of six people in order to go. We had three parties of two.... More

Really this is a boat ride close to shore.Not really very enjoyable.Can see as many whales along shores in area,as I said boat stays pretty close to shore.We did see 'a' whale,and crew only seemed to follow it around.Can't say I would reccomend.
