Depoe Bay is located on the Oregon coast 100 miles south of the mouth of Columbia River.
The entrance to Depoe Bay features two breakwaters to the north, an eight-foot-deep, 50-foot-wide entrance channel, an inner basin with a retaining wall on the east side of the bay and a sediment basin near the mouth of Depoe Bay Creek. The most recent improvements were completed in 1966. Facilities in the inner basin of Depoe Bay consist of landings and floats to accommodate operators of excursion and commercial fishing boats.
