Our Newport, Oregon Fishing Charters

Family-Owned & Operated Newport, Oregon Fishing Charters

We offer from start to finish the best customer service you can find in the industry. We have plenty of parking next to the docks so you never have a long walk or long stairs to climb. Our experienced captains and friendly crew provide high-quality fishing equipment for use and take the time to show you how to use it. You are always welcome to bring your own favorite rod as well. Expert fish cleaning services are available at our docks.

All our fishing boats are fiberglass and contain state-of-the-art equipment for getting on the fish. Our boats are all U.S Coast Guard certified and comply with all safety regulations.  We do not take safety lightly! Our pilots are licensed and professional captains who are extremely knowledgeable with many years of experience on the Pacific Coast.

We never overcrowd our boats! Smaller passenger loads means better, more personal service. Be sure to dress warmly, preferably in layers and don’t forget to bring  your camera to capture that special moment. We provide bait and tackle.  A fishing license is required and can be purchased on site.

Guests Love Fishing With Yaquina Bay Charters!

Great Day with Capt Jack on the Cracker Jack

Great trip with my sons and son-in-law on the "Cracker Jack" with Captain Jack and First Mate Dylan. Caught our Rockfish limit within 1 1/2 hours of leaving the dock. Had to throw several more back after we switched to lingcod. Added on a couple of lingcod for a very nice day of fishing. Helped that it was a very calm day.

Amazing Company

Everyone gets to fish! Each trip we have limited on fish, captains are amazing and fun plus deckhands are always helpful. One of my favorite charters!

Great Experience For All!

I booked a half day of bottom fishing and crab for a group of 5. Captain Shannon and Deckhand Shawn on the Gracie K were exceptional hosts. Not only did we find fish almost every group on the boat limited out. It was a great day and great experience for everyone! I will definitely be booking another trip soon!

Crabbing At Its Best

Captain Mark and Deckhand Jerald on the Spindrift knew where to go to find the Crabs. They made it a lot of fun for the entire family. We will definitely return for another trip.

Best Charter Company

By far the best company to fish with. All 3 crews work hard to get you on the fish. They supply all gear and are ok with you bringing your own. Fish on!
