We had a really great time salmon fishing with Captain's Reel! As soon as we put our rods out, there were fish on our hooks. The captain and deck hand were very experienced and they were helpful in instructing us what to do (if we were newbies). We all caught our limit and 3 crab a piece. We even stopped... More

Spent the morning out on the water with a few other couples. Captain Chad & his deck hand Noah were GREAT!!! Super helpful, got us on fish & kept us there. Everyone went home either limited out or very close to their limits! It was a great day full of laughs & good times. I've done other charters out of... More

There are many companies you can fish with in Newport and they all do fairly well at taking people out and getting them on fish. What sets Captain's apart is their fantastic family like customer service. I have had good fishing days as well as not so good with them but every trip has been a great time and we... More

From the beginning call to make reservations with Barbara this trip was fantastic. Barbara was fun to talk to and very transparent with information and expectations. My wife and I had guests from Arkansas and we had a wonderful time and caught fish, sometimes two at a time. Captain Chad and Deckhand Todd were professional, courteous and skilled at their... More

Captain Reel’s provided a great experience from the reservation call to returning to the dock with our fish. My husband had gone Halibut fishing with Captain Reels last summer and enjoyed his experience. When a groupon came up for rock fishing, we were both excited. I called and made a reservation for a Saturday in April. The lady who made... More

My family of 6 (4 kiddos under the age of 15) went out for a day with Captains Reel Charters. I have to say, it was fantastic! Our boat Captain (Gerald) was laid back, fun, and personable. The deck hands were very helpful, and were attentive to the needs of all the kids fishing! All of us caught our limits... More

Great staff and facilities!! First time crabbing and we're already making plans for a return trip next summer. Call ahead to get recommendations on attire. Could not have been more pleased with the time spend and the reasonable pricing.

This was going to be a birthday celebration trip and, while not faulting the captain, we were not informed that we would not be going until our entire group had filtered in from Corvallis, Albany and Salem. Barbara told us she had been updated by the Coast Guard at 6 that morning, at which point we were all awake but... More

bereal4sure, Owner at Captain's Reel Charters, responded to this review

While I fully understand your frustrations, every charter company receives the morning report at approximately 6am. All charter companies on Yaquina Bay arrive at their offices about one hour prior to the first morning trip departure. We are unaware of the bar report prior to this time. While we realize that some of our customers have to drive long distances... More
