Wheeler Marina is located just south of Nehalem on US101 in the historic town of Wheeler, Oregon. We are right in the center of Wheeler with plenty of services to make your stay enjoyable. We have kayaks for sale/rent, crab boats for rent, and mooring available. We also sell fishing/crabbing licenses and tackle and have a crab cooker and lots of friendly advice on what to see & how to do it. We understand that there is no cure for “Salmon Fever,” “Crab Fever,” or the addiction to truly great kayaking waters. We offer understanding and comfort during your time of need.
Our location places you where the bay narrows and the Nehalem river begins. Hang a right turn where the water meets our dock and you can explore one of Oregon’s largest and most scenic rivers. On the North Fork of the Nehalem you may see elk, eagles, herons, and the curious seal or two.
Make a left turn at the water's edge and you enter the Nehalem Bay where you will find the finest crabbing around, more than a mile of state park waterfront on the bay, and sand flats that are visited by a large variety of our feathered friends. Or troll for Chinook Salmon during the summer and fall runs directly in front of our docks. Be sure to check out the Fishing & Crabbing page with one of our customers landing a 34 lb Chinook from a rental boat right in front of the marina.
