The Charleston Oyster Feed put on by the Charleston Community Enhancement Corporation was a success! The sun was out, the music was playing and the oysters were a cookin'! It was a fun time for the whole community. Thank you to everyone who came out and we'll see you next year!
Congratulations to Charleston Shipyard boat fabricator, Tarheel Aluminum, for a successful launch of the Alice Faye! The Alice Faye has 15' wide beam and is 40' in length. It will be one of the larger fishing vessels based out of Port Orford, OR. This vessel can be used for both commercial fishing and crabbing. It was also our Charleston Shipyard's maiden launch for a commercial vessel! For more information on the travel lift, click here.
The Port of Coos Bay has partnered with Business Oregon to operate the state-owned dredge The Laura to provide dredging for Oregon's smaller ports. This allows smaller ports a more affordable option for dredging. Port of Coos Bay will maintain and provide stewardship over the dredge through this program. The Port of Coos Bay and the Port of Alsea have partnered together to dredge Port of Alsea's marina which is vital to their recreational activities in the summer time.

There's nothing better than going Ocean Fishing and Crabbing on a bluebird day! Follow along on this quick fishing trip that our Harbormaster, John Buckley went on this summer! Thank you to Captain John Blanchard of Sharky's Charters for allowing us to document the trip!
Whether it's crabbing, clamming or fishing, we've got it all in the Charleston Marina!
