What is there to do?

Did you know that for nearly a century Tradewinds Charters have been providing super fun, educational and fascinating tours for families in Oregon? They must be doing something right!

Located in Depoe Bay, Tradewinds Charters have all sorts of tours that you can pick from, so you can have all sorts of experiences AND pick the right one for your family!

Let's start with the fishing trips! As they like to say, "Quit Wishin' Go Fishin" - and we agree! For those experienced fishermen, as well as those who have never touched a rod before, these tours are for you.

The crew will give you all the gear you need for the perfect experience. There is even fish cleaning available at the docks, so it will be all ready for you to cook for dinner! Why not take a 5 hour bottom fishing trip, or bottom fishing with crabbing? You might get lucky and catch a Halibut or a Chinook salmon!

From the smaller fish, to those huge mammals of the waters, Tradewinds Charters gives you an unforgettable experience on their one and two hour whale watching trips. The departure point is SO close to the ocean, that it won't be long before you start spotting whales! With whale watching almost all year round, it's a sight in Oregon that might take your breath away!

You might catch a glimpse of those sweet Gray Whales, as they return from the lagoons of Mexico.

Kids will love hearing all the stories and facts about these beautiful creatures of our oceans, and they of course are happy to answer any questions they might have. It's a floating classroom!  

No matter what age, the ocean is a beautiful place to explore. So let's get started - Oregon is waiting!
