Unless you own your own dory boat, you’ll need to charter one to fish in the ocean. It’s a thrilling experience to see or experience these flat-bottomed boats launch and land off the beach at Cape Kiwanda. Fish for salmon or bottom fish or catch some crab. Or if you don’t fish, you can take a sight-seeing trip around the rock and north to Cape Lookout. Local dory boat captains will take good care of you and even clean and package your catch of the day.
