Lady at the counter was nice and gave us a good laugh. We got on the tacklebuster boat and had a great friendly crew! They put us over the fish even on a semi rough condition day. We all limited out and had a wonderful time. This was our second trip out with the TackleBuster and I highly recommend that... More

I have been wanting to deep sea fish for years and now was my chance! We were staying in Cannon Beach and drove over 2 hours at 3 in the morning to get here by our check in time. I was a little disappointed from the get go. Our boat captain was nice but the helper or "deckhand", I think... More

Bill and Mason did an awesome job on the Cha-son for our Bottom Fishing Charter. We had many laughs and caught a ton of fish! Dockside has a great business!! They definitely know what they are doing. Every aspect of our experience was smooth! We would recommend this charter service to anyone interested in a great day of fishing!

A great experience, we didn't catch any keepers but it didn't matter, we had a blast. Jake, Bait Boy & Captain JT took great care of us. They're a hardworking bunch. Should've come later in the season for salmon but the trip was a memory I'll never forget.

There are a lot of charters, and reviews are a great way of deciding which to pick. I booked for three people on a 5 hour bottom fishing expedition with this outfit. We arrived on time, checked in, and were placed on a boat that apparently had a dead battery. We stood around for 15 minutes waiting before the boat... More

Excellent trip along the Oregon shore looking for whales. Very good vessel used to go on the trip. Tour guides were excellent at knowing where the whales were and spotting them. Very good for folks of all ages.

We had the best time on this tour. We departed right on time with a good number of fellow tourists. We saw whales right out of the gate. We didn't go far from shore at all and the crew did a fantastic job pointing the whales out and driving to locations so everyone on boat could see. We saw at... More

Loved every minute! Don't forget your Dramamine. Loved James on the Triumph. Caught a halibut, lingcod and lots of rockfish. Be sure you drop crab pots it was an experience. We got 36 dungeon crabs. Wonderful day. Enjoy those halibut cheeks.

We don't fish, at least I thought so before this...okay, maybe it was the captain but we all got our limit of both crab and fish. Our family of 5 appeared to be grouped with other families which was nice since some of the dudes in line looked very hard core about fishing. The crew worked exceptionally hard for everyone...
