The captain was friendly and knowledgeable. We saw quite a few different whales and it only cost us $20 per person for an hour. I get sea sick so it was a great experience, even with it so windy. I'll definitely be going there again.

Spent an enjoyable afternoon watching whales in the Depoe Bay Area with tradewind charters. I chose this company since they use a larger boat with little chance of splash so that I could bring my DSLR on board. The trip was good. We could see...More

In the past I have avoided Tradewinds Charters because of the steep flight of steps down to the boat. Dockside Charters was fully booked so I went out with Tradewinds. We were on Mr Max. The journey over the bar was uneventful. We were soon...More
