Newport is the center of tourism in coastal Oregon, and beautiful Yaquina (often called Newport) Bay attracts many water enthusiasts as well. This estuary drains the Yaquina River, and once attracted settlers for its rich oyster beds; today it is fishermen, kayakers and whale watchers who are drawn here. Yaquina Bay can offer excellent crabbing and clamming in season. Many anglers depart from here to fish offshore for tuna and halibut, as well as salmon. Whether they've found success or not, two of the mid-coast's great landmarks, Yaquina Head Lighthouse and the Yaquina Bay Bridge, beckon the fishermen back to port, making for a most scenic return.

Oregon Coast Aquarium's inaugural Flippers, Fins and Feathers 5k is a fun run\/walk that ends with running through the aquarium to the finish line. Participants need to arrive at the aquarium to check in, starting at 6:00 am.  A DJ will announce the start of the race at 7:00 am.  Finishers will receive a t-shirt, water bottle, refreshments and admission to the aquarium after the run.  Must be 12 years or older. Strollers may be used at your own discretion, knowing the course has uneven ground with some gravel. This run promotes a healthy lifestyle and also educates participants about the wildlife native to the Oregon coast.  Proceeds will contribute to the Oregon Coast Aquarium and its animal care.<\/p>\r\n
