2022 is almost upon us, and with the coming New Year also comes many new changes.   After almost 25 years, Chris Olson is selling Newport Marina Store & Charters, Inc.   He and Kim are starting a new chapter in their lives and are very excited about the years ahead.

Yaquina Bay Charters is combining with Newport Marina Store & Charters, with Jack at the helm of charter operations.  Rachel Craven and Lauren Craven will partner to run the store and boat rentals, and help with the charter office.  We welcome them to the office and hope that you welcome them and support them, also.

We have made many good and dear friends over the years, and have seen some great Charter Fishing Vessels go through their office.  The Miss Raven and Umatilla II will still be running through the office, and some of the crew is staying, also.

Expect some fresh new faces, and exciting times and trips to come in the years ahead.  We wish them all good luck with this new venture.  We hope it is as successful for them as it has been for us.

Good fortune to all in the future.

Chris and Kim

Oregon Charter Fishing in Newport Oregon

We are the home of the finest deep sea fishing charters on the Oregon Coast.

Come fish with us aboard the  “Miss Raven,” “Umatilla II”, or our 6-pack “Sea Bear”  for an unforgettable day on the beautiful Pacific Ocean.  We also offer 6-pack fishing trips on the “Osprey“.

We offer a wide selection of charter trips and boats to make your fishing trip spectacular.  Our larger charter boats – Miss Raven and Umatilla II- can seat larger parties.  These smooth sailing vessels of the sea, can hold up to 20-25 for bottom fishing and crabbing tours.  Sea Bear is ready to take your party of 6 out on the ocean for a great day of small party, private fishing fun.
