Check your tide table and if the tide is coming in mosey on down and rent a crab ring. Friendly helpful. Good during the summer, November wind and rain was brutal. Great parking.

We stopped in on a Sunday afternoon to purchase one crab and a pound of clams for dinner. ($24+ tip) Marina was busy and we placed our orders and waited the 20+ minutes for our crab to be cooked. Staff was friendly; good system, pick out crab, go inside to pay then check back in 20 minutes or so. Staff... More

This is the first time my wife a friend and I went. Honestly would not have known what it was just passing but lucky we were with a friend that lives in oregon so we stopped in. I have never been to a place like this before but kelly's was great. Very friendly and helpful staff. And the first time... More

So happy I discovered this place! We had beautiful weather so the water was smooth and we hired out a boat for 2 hours while catching crabs. You get to eat the crabs you catch, they cook them for you when you bring them back. You're almost guaranteed to catch lots of crabs although many will be too small to... More

We've been coming here for years to get tasty fresh caught crabs cooked while you wait. Always friendly and a delight. If not overly busy, takes about 20 minutes to get your live crabs cooked and cleaned. Eat there or take away. Just enough time for a cold beer or soda they sell and sit on the enjoyable deck with...

We have been on lots of boats before and we grew up fishing but crabbing was all new to us. The staff here was very friendly and helpful. We caught 10 legal crabs in 1.75 hours and that was more than we could eat. It takes some muscle to pull up the nets and get the rim of the ring... More

Over the years we have visited kellys and the Jetty fishery right next door. I always thought I caught Kelly in a bad day that made him unpersonable. Turns out that is just his personality, shallow and not very friendly. My familys crabbing is important to us and the additudes of mr Kelly and his crew and his wife are... More

Wow - not sure what happened to create such venom, while we truly strive to give the best customer service possible, August is the CRAZY BUSY month and we can sometimes be short in our responses solely because we have so many people to interact with. Occasionally personalities just don't mesh - we hope you are able to find that... More

We wanted a unique coast experience but we're not sure what to expect. We were not disappointed, and our morning spent crabbing has been one of the highlights of our west coast vacation. To start, everyone at the marina is very friendly and very helpful. They really treat their customers as family. A short info session to get tips on... More
