Ask anyone who has spent time at The Jetty Fishery and they will tell you that it is much more than a business. The Laviolette family has operated the Jetty since 1979, with Damian and Teah Laviolette taking the reins in September 2018. Over the years the Laviolettes have expanded the fishery from an RV park and boat rental facility to include live seafood such as Dungeness crabs and fresh local oysters and rental cabins only a few feet from the bay.
The Jetty Fishery has been mentioned in publications such as the New York Times, Sunset Magazine, The Oregonian and Beer Northwest and is frequently selected as one of the best one-stop destinations for singles, couples and families to take part in crabbing, picnicking, hiking, camping, clamming, fishing, birding and eating some of the best fresh seafood on the West Coast of the United States.
The Jetty Fishery is located on the waters of the Nehalem Bay, less than 10 feet to tide pools, authentic cabled docks and sandy beaches. If you want to experience the pounding surf of the Pacific Ocean, you only need to open your window. Just a 2 minute boat ride across the Nehalem Bay and you’ll find yourself on the deserted beaches of the Nehalem Bay State Park. You can comb the beach, relax and read a book in a secluded nest of driftwood, or walk the lovely 3-mile peninsula over to the town of Manzanita and have an ice cream cone. No matter what you like to do, the Jetty Fishery is an excellent base of operations for your local activities.
