The Oregon Coast is an ideal destination for those who enjoy riding in small boats, and a variety of marinas dot the coastline to provide services. Some of these are owned and operated by ports, while others are privately owned. All of them provide moorage. Some will also rent boats and you can often find a guide to take you out on a charter. Marinas are a great place to mingle with people who have similar boating interests and make new friends while learning about the maritime environment.
