Gateway to the Pacific Ocean

Garibaldi, Oregon is a port town nestled at the northern end of Tillamook Bay, gateway to the magnificent Pacific Ocean. At the marina, commercial fisherman sling fresh Dungeness crabs, ling cod, rockfish, and even octopus up to the docks, sport fishermen tell tales at the filet table about their record Chinook, kayakers paddle out to look for bald eagles, pigeon guillemots, and purple martins, while gulls circle above and harbor seals surface to see what’s going on. The steamer train blows its horn, children laugh at the playground, and, if you listen real hard, you might hear talk about that secret spot to dig up a limit of butter clams….Walking distance from the marina are four motels, RV parks, bed and breakfasts, and vacation rentals. Many hometown restaurants, all kinds of shops, and a maritime museum are all part of this quaint coastal town of 1,000.
