About South Coast Tours

Let South Coast Tours take you on an adventure paddle in the Wild Rivers Coast estuaries and out into the Southern Oregon near shore ocean.

Go fishing, wildlife viewing or just simply enjoy the experience of gliding across the waterways of the banana belt coast of Oregon. The south coast holds much of Oregon’s near shore reefs and some of the best fishing, photography, wildlife viewing and wildest rivers on the west coast. Please remember that guiding is a service industry. If your guide takes care of you, take care of them. Tipping is greatly appreciated!
