Where and when do we check in? Where do we go?
Check in at our SIGGI-G Ocean Charters office located in Garibaldi, Oregon about 10 miles North of Tillamook on Highway 101. We are located in the Garibaldi boat basin. To find us, turn South on 7th Street at the Shell Station towards the Garibaldi Boat Basin, take 7th St all the way to the end which becomes a U turn to left and look for our big blue metal building on the right with the OCEAN CHARTERS sign on the front. Check in times are generally between 5:00 and 5:30 am, with departure between 5:30 and 6:00 am based on the time of year (amount of daylight) length of trip and type of trip. It is always good to confirm check in time of your trip.
What should I wear?
The weather is always cooler on the water, and this is Oregon – so it is best to be prepared! We recommend dressing in layers with a warm jacket, and bringing a hat and gloves, and just in case, bring waterproof jackets/pants and rain-boots if you have them.
Do I need to bring a lunch?
You are welcome to bring your own lunch and snacks. There is complimentary coffee onboard, but we recommend bringing bottled water and whatever else you would like to eat or drink. One local favorite for a Fishermen’s Lunch is Parkside Cafe – 503-322-0357. Be sure to call with plenty of notice…
Can I bring a cooler?
Please feel free to bring a small, personal size cooler with your food and beverages on board. Bring a larger cooler to take your fish home, and leave it in your vehicle. There will be plenty of time to retrieve it before you pick up your filleted fish.
