Deep sea fishing is by definition any kind of fishing done in water about 100 feet deep on a boat, that isn’t easily visible from shore. This makes Westport a hotspot destination for deep sea fishing hobbyist each year, in the Northwest.

Charting a boat in Westport is pretty easy and visitors have four companies each with over 4.5 star reviews.
