This is the fishing charter I go on every time. Most of the times, the experienced crew will get us lots of fish. Very friendly staff. They offer cleaning of fish, cooking of crab, and vacuum packaging.

Some of you may have read my review of Dockside Charters in Depoe Bay, Oregon in May 2016. It is now September '16 and I am back armed with the knowledge of the previous trip. This week turned out perfect as my wife and one of her girlfriends headed to Italy for a girl trip which left me in Boise... More

Our family of four booked a last minute bottom fishing/crabbing trip aboard the Tacklebuster. The booking agent was very informative and friendly. The crew on the Tacklebuster (Capt. JT, Tyler, and Jake) know their business and take good care of their boat, gear, and clients. They got us into fish despite a slow bite and the crabbing was a great... More

Outstanding trip! We went whale watching late August 2016 with Lars. We saw at least eight whales. The Captain and crew was very experienced, the boat large enough for a comfortable ride and was equipped with radar (an important safety feature on the Oregon Coast). A marine biologist was onboard to answer questions about the whales. Depoe Bay is the... More

My family went fishing w/ Dockside charters again. Lars captained the Samson again. The fish were not biting very well but Lars worked it to get us the best action available. Make a reservation as the best are always busy If you go and crabbing season is open, Buy in!

We have visited Depoe Bay many times but have never taken time to go out on a whale watching tour there. We finally did that last weekend. WOW! The crew of the Tacklebuster was great! We saw too many gray whales to count, one came up so close to the boat we could almost pet it! We have watched whales... More

We arrived to find the cruise we were hoping to take had already left. The coordinator said that there were enough people so another cruise would leave in about an hour. As things turned out, there were only the four of us. We were delighted when the captain said he would go out anyway. It was a perfect day on... More

I have fished with several outfits in California and Oregon and Dockside is definitely my favorite. They have always been very reliable, respectful and accommodating. Especially now that I live in Boise and book my trips in advance, I need to make sure I get on with a team that I can depend on. Team at the front desk have... More
