We had the best time because the skipper knew the water and the fishing holes. The boat limited, the boat was clean and well appointed. Will continue to use Dockside Charters for all fishing trips from the Centeral Oregon Coast.

We had a marvelous time with our family that included our two grandchildren ages 6 and 7. Fishing was great. Excellent hospitality that is why we come every year. Could not ask for any better folks. Thanks again for a wonderful trip see you next year. Ray and Edith Shannon

Dockside Charters, as the name says, is dockside. They should not be confused with the charter outfit (Tradewinds) located at the bridge along the highway. When you look down into the harbor, they are located on the dock adjacent to the Coast Guard Station. It's a simple drive down hill to the dock and adequate parking to check in to... More

I booked with Dock Side Charters because the other company in Depot Bay had problems with fish and game about license issuing problems. The office staff was very good when we booked. The morning greeting was good and the safety drill was adequate. After departure the ride was rough and uneven but ok concerning the conditions. I have had skippers... More

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.

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
