This was my first fishing trip in the Pacific Ocean and it was awesome! The weather was a bit rough, as evidenced by the fact we were the only ones on the water in our area. But, the Captain knew his business well and he and the deck hands Max and Charlie functioned as a well-oiled machine! Everyone on the boat of 8 passengers limited out within about an hour and a half. This experience is what I truly hope is the first of many adventures with Betty Kay Charters!
Grateful to my friend for the recommendation, as I wouldn't have known who to book. These guys are the real deal!

Excellent skipper on the Shamrock. Deck hands are knowledgeable and nimble too! We have fished with Betty Kay Charters for years and the experience is always top notch. Myself and anyone I’ve ever fished with, on a Betty Kay boat, have always come home with our full limits of fish. The staff makes everyone feel safe and secure and takes great pride in their boats and their expertise.

Took my daughter out for her first ever bottom fishing experience with Betty Kay Charters for her 9th Birthday and couldn’t have had a better experience! The captain and both crew members made it their mission to give my daughter the best experience they could. My daughter is a tiny little thing, so they helped her drop her line, hook a fish and hold her rod (while I was reeling in my own fish) as she reeled in her catch all by herself. As if being so hands on helping her wasn’t enough, they would cheer her on and make her feel like a rockstar! I couldn’t be more great full to the crew. Thank you Betty Kay for treating my little girl like a princess. She hasn’t stopped talking about the trip and can’t wait to do it again for her next Birthday.

Had a trip scheduled through Betty Kay and made sure to check fine print on cancellations, as we had people flying in from out of country to go on this trip. One thing that was never mentioned was if a group also going with us cancels, we would not be able to go as there is too few us us at 5. Then I saw reviews on how they have taken 3-4 people groups out. I explained that it was now Saturday night and I probably wouldn't be able to find another charter, and I had people flying into country for this, but was told sorry, they can't take out just a group of five come the next morning. Yet reviews have said otherwise.
I was refunded my money and wasn't going to leave a review as we found someone to take us out the next morning as he said he felt bad for what happened (Coos Bay Charters) but the repeated emails to leave a review on my experience are reminding me how I didn't in fact have an experience with them.

Great time. Went deep sea fishing for the first time in 50 years on our 50th wedding anniversary, and had our 17 year old grand daughter with us. Fishing was awesome, and so was the captain and crew. The entire boat caught their limit of Rock Fish, as well as some large Ling Cod. Great experience and will be back.

Beautiful boat and great crew. The captain knew where the fish were and would instruct us on what depth to fish. If you want to catch fish I highly recommend Betty Kay Charters in Charleston, Oregon.

I had a great time with the crew. They were prompt with leaving and incredibly knowledgeable and answered all the questions I had asked.

I was a little sad when the Captain called the trip around 9AM as it seemed he had an emergency that he had to get back on shore to deal with. My group of 3 did not get their limit. Instead, we were given fish that other people on the boat had caught to reach the limit. We maybe hit five spots before the Cap called it and most of the time was spent travelling between holes.

I am sympathetic that the Cap had to get back to dry land to attend this emergency but we did leave early and did not have the chance to catch our limit.

I will be scheduling a tuna trip with them when the season is upon us with this charter.

Amazing time and even more excellent fishing! The captain knew all the right spots to go and literally caught a fish with every cast (I kid you not). Crew were attentive and a pleasure to chat with. Would fish with them again and would suggest to anyone who’s in the area and looking for an adventure!

This trip was so much fun! I booked this trip for my husband and 4 of our friends. The captain and crew were there whenever anyone needed any assistance. As a total novice they quickly made me feel comfortable and I actually caught fish. We all caught our limit.

The waves were running high but the crew did an exceptional job making sure that everyone had their fish removed from the line promptly so they could recast. I will book with this charter again in the future for a tuna trip. Can’t wait.
