Oregon: Enjoying Coastal Delights

Got Crab? If not, a visit to the Dungeness Crab Capital of the World is in order. The coastal city of Newport, Oregon, makes claim to this title.

Don’t be fooled by the “Ripley’s Believe It Or Not,” or the “Wax Museum,” luring tourists alongside the fisheries of Newport’s Yaquina Bay, they take their fishing and crabbing seriously around here. Just ask the sea lions, who continually crawl onto the docks, and into cages.

Fishermen transport these creatures further out into the ocean and drop them off, so that they do not eat all profits swimming in the bay. But the sea lions come back... and so do we, because the food is that good, and not just the crab.
