Welcome to the Port of Bandon

May contain: water, nature, outdoors, and waterfront

The Port of Bandon was established on September 3rd, 1913 with the first resolutions to establish Port by-laws going into effect within the first few months. The original Board of Commissioners appointed by the Govenor of the State of Oregon were:

  • R.H. Rosa (Vice President)
  • R.E.L. Bedillion
  • T.P. Hanly
  • E.E. Johnson (President) and
  • J.E. Norton (Secretary)

The industrial economy of the early years called for engineering projects that improved shipping opportunities, jetties, harbor, and the on-going dredging of the Coquille River bar. Our focus today is on recreational, commercial and environmental projects.

Working with various federal and state grant funding partners, including the City of Bandon, the Port of Bandon has developed the Coquille River waterfront area to include:

  • Full Marina Facilities
  • Full Service Stopover for commercial fishing and recreational vessels
  • A popular Crab Dock just steps away from bait, tackle and restrooms
  • A year round Boat Ramp and freshwater Fish Cleaning Station
  • A scenic Riverwalk with Nature Pathway and Observation Areas
  • A Boardwalk with glassed in Picnic Shelter and Amphitheater
  • A refurbished 13,000 sq.ft. fish processing plant, now home to the Old Town Marketplace-Bandon's Farmers/Artisan Market


The Port of Bandon through its creative projects serves as the economic engine of the port district which includes Bandon and Coquille.
