Welcome to the Port of Bandon Website

The industrial economy of the early years called for engineering projects that improved shipping opportunities, jetties, harbor, and the on-going dredging of the Coquille River bar. Our focus today is on recreational, commercial and environmental projects.

Working with the Bandon City Administration and various federal and private grant funding channels, the Port of Bandon has developed the City's waterfront area to include:

  • Full Marina Facilities for boat launching and sport fishing
  • Full Service Stopover for commercial fishing and recreational vessels
  • A popular Crab Dock just steps away from bait, tackle and restrooms
  • A Year round Boat Ramp and roofed freshwater Fish Cleaning Station
  • A scenic Riverwalk with Nature Pathway and Observation Areas
  • A new Boardwalk with glassed in Picnic Shelter and Amphitheater

 

 

 

Since its inception in 1913, the Port of Bandon has endeavored to improve the special qualities of the port district.

Upcoming Events 2014

Friday, July 11th, 2014 6pm to 7pm Bats Around Us John Aldridge, BLM Environmental Education Intern will talk about the Bats that inhabit our region.
