Kelly’s place is awesome, everything a person Wants to see at a marina! Crabs, oysters and clams all right out of the... ocean. Talk about service, Wilson got us crab bait and fixed us up with what we needed for our ocean adventure!! Don’t miss this cool family owned outfit if you make it to Oregon coast.read more

This place is something special. I love how you can decide your own level of involvement. Rent a fresh baited trap and... toss it off the dock with the kids or launch your own boat. Nothing is intimidating here. The friendly staff was patient and accomidating with my multiple, newbie questions. These are some of the hardest working employees I've ever seen. The store has a wide array of beers to pair with the seafood. 17 campsites have water front views and water/electric hookups. No dump here. Head to Bar View Jetty park outside Garibaldi to dump for 10 bucks. Sunsets can't be beat! We had a small, water issue (our fault) with our campsite and the man in the crab hat (Kelly, the owner) was on it in minutes. His cheerful mood was really refreshing! Don't hesitate to come here, this place takes your enjoyment seriously.read more

Best time we had in OR! We stopped and expected to stay an hour or so, but had so much fun crabbing and hanging out we... stayed all day! We got 2 HUGE crab and a few more keepers. Met the great Philipino Phil and got some amazing sauces. He fed us crab hearts speared with their own claws and crab butter- incidentally the best thing we ate on the trip too. We also bugged the crab out of Bryan (who could not be bugged), counted kittens, pet the sweet old Lily, explored and enjoyed. This place is great, stop and see.read more

We had the most amazing, unforgettable experience crabbing at Kelly’s Brighton Marina! We rented a boat, and crab... pots from Kelly’s, and crabbed in the bay for three hours! We caught about 8 pounds of crab, and then the nicest employee gutted, and cooked our crab for us right there!!!! The overall cost was $150, and that included the THEEE HOURS of boat rental, gas, life vests, THREE crab pots with bait, and cleaning/gutting/cooking the crab! Worth EVERY PENNY!! Such a great deal, and the coolest experience! One we won’t forget! The kid from Montana that cooked our crab was a gem to talk to, and the nicest employee also! Kelly the owner was also super kind, informative, and answered all our questions!read more

My Joe buddy works here which makes it better but to go visit but they have camping, RV parking/camping, boats to rent... to go fishing or crabbing, crabbing from the dock and they can cook the crab you catch for you right there. Enjoy a coffee, tea, hot chocolate, soda, beer, and snacks you can purchase in the marina store, and most of all the crab you catch, around a warm fire outdoors without camping there. “ in my opinion the best part, that’s the main reason a lot of people go to the beach to enjoy a fire and the ocean air.” They sell crab, oysters and few other kinds of seafood. Plus they have Kelly almost always wearing a crazy crab hat. Great staff working the place. Enjoyment and fun for pretty much anyone.read more

Such a fun experience and amazing staff to help us first timers catch crab! Four stars instead of five only because it... looks kind of kitschy and rundown when you first get there. But the whole time was fun for our 2 families and 4 teens who “didn’t want to go” and then had such a good time that they want to go again. Also, they have fresh oysters and clams you can buy and cook the crab you catch right there or you can take it home. Great friendly place with a beautiful view. Can’t wait to go next summer!read more
