Learn about Oregon's commercial fisheries at a local port from Oregon Sea Grant experts and partners.
At Shop at the Dock Tours, people learn where to find local seafood, what's in season, how it's caught, if it's sustainable, and how to purchase high-quality seafood directly from fishermen at the Port of Newport.
If you plan to buy seafood at the tour, make sure you bring cash, a cooler and ice.
If you can't make it to one of the tours, check out this Q&A website on how to buy fresh seafood from a fishing boat.
Our summer 2023 tour season is now over, but we look forward to seeing everyone next summer for more Shop at the Dock tours.
The Newport tours are at Dock 5 at the Port of Newport on SW Bay Boulevard in Newport. The tours are FREE and on a first-come, first-serve basis. For groups of 5 or more, please contact 541-648-6816 ahead of time to make arrangements. Tours may be possible at additional times, as needed, for larger groups.
Please wear comfortable walking shoes as docks can be slippery and move underfoot. If you have any concerns or need accommodations, please email Angee Doerr or call (541) 648-6816 for the Newport tours.
Oregon Sea Grant and Oregon State University Extension Service organize the tours. Partners include the Port of Newport.
