Garibaldi Pelagics —10/1, 10/2

Oregon Pelagic Tours is pleased to announce that we have scheduled two 8-hour pelagics out of Garibaldi, departing Saturday, October 1st and Sunday, October 2nd. These trips will depart at 7:00 am and return at 3:00 pm. Cost will be $190 per person. These trips will be limited to 17 passengers and 3 guides due to boat capacity. IMPORTANT: I am unable to accept reservations prior to August 25. In the interest of fairness, spaces will be filled in the order payment is received after that date. Payments received August 24th and earlier will be returned to sender.

NO OPT TRIPS ON THE SCHEDULE FOR 2022

As of July 31, there are currently NO pelagic trips on the schedule for 2022. I am still exploring options with charters, for something in September, October and/or December, but as all administrative and organizational tasks are handled solely by one person who will be heading to South America, I was not able to make progress in getting anything arranged before my departure. 

I understand that this is disappointing to many, as it is to me. A couple of people have asked if they should try to set up their own pelagic trips this year, and I am now at the point where I think they should. I am grateful that they were thoughtful enough to keep me in the loop. 

I will have little to no access to the internet for the next couple of weeks. 

Oregon Pelagic Tours is NOT looking at shutting down permanently. I am looking at this as a time for both carefully examining our business model and exploring options of different ports and vessels.

Thank you for your understanding.  Tim
