We are a friendly, family owned and operated office offering premium ocean sport fishing charters for Albacore Tuna, Rockfish, Halibut, and Salmon. Rockfishing trips are available year-round, but Tuna, Halibut, and Salmon keep us very busy from May through September. We do not overcrowd our boats and have a maximum load of 16 fisherman for Rockfish, 12 for Halibut and Salmon, and 10 for Tuna on our two large boats. Private parties may bring as few or as many people desired up to 30. We run two twin 43ft. Deltas, the Crackerjack and Gracie K, and we also have a smaller 27ft. 6-pack boat named the Jana Sea which allows 6 maximum passengers for premium trips. We're located right next to the Embarcadero Resort Hotel in Newport on the Historic Bayfront.

Aboard the Gracie K with Captain Shannon and deckhand Cole for a nearshore halibut/rockfish combo trip. Great experience for my first time ocean fishing. Both the captain and the deckhand worked hard to help you haul in your catch and made sure your hook was baited. The captain had us on the halibut and we were able to limit our... More

We went on a 6 hour bottom fishing trip with Captain Chester (Chad). It took a little bit of looking (about an hour or so) to find a school that Chad felt was worth fishing over, but once we did it was GO TIME. We had our limit (42 fish for 6 of us) in about 1.5 hours. Captain Chad... More

We found Yaquina Bay Charters as they adjoin the Embarcadero where we were staying. There trips were priced competitively so we went with them. My husband had wanted to do an off shore fishing trip and I decided to go along although I had not been fishing in a VERY long time. That was not a problem. The crew was... More

This is my second trip with Yaquina Bay Charters and based on my previous experience I knew we would have a great time. On this trip I took my son and his friend and we all had a fantastic time! The day started off a little slow, but the captain managed to put us on the fish and by the... More

This was a great fishing trip and Chet with the Jana Sea was an awesome captain. He was patient and obviously a very skilled fisherman and captain. We caught our limit of Rockfish and even got one Lingcod. Ladies cutting fish sure knew what they were doing and did not waste any good meat. Bring cash for cleaning fish. 5... More

We took our four little kids crab fishing and whale watching. It was phenomenal! We watched four big whales for about an hour then went and pulled up tons of crab nets. We ended up with 36 crabs!!! They gut them, clean them, and cook them for $1 per crab. We ate so much crab we ended up giving away... More

We had a great experience with Captain Chet on the Jana Sea! It was my first time booking a fishing charter, and I was quite nervous to do so. We wanted a small boat with just our family so that we could come in early if we got too tired and didn't want to sit on a boat for 10... More

I booked a halibut fishing trip with Yaquina Bay charters in June 2015. Unfortunately after a long trip out the rough seas only allowed us to fish for about an hour; only one halibut was caught and we were forced to come back early. The crew and staff were extremely hardworking and cool and they refunded all but $50 of... More
