Depoe Bay is said to be the “World’s Smallest Harbor.” Also called “The Hole in the Wall,” it is one of nature's most unusual and beautiful seaside places. The Pacific Ocean butts up against the steep landfall but there is a little hole in the rocks giving access to the tiny harbor.

Demonstrations during the show included:

  • Steam bending demonstrations
  • Canoe seat and paddle construction
  • Wood strip pulling boat construction
  • Wherry rowing shell construction
  • Eskimo Kayak rolling

Andrew Linn PhotoActivities included a challenge rowing race in a dory, model boat demonstrations, kids wooden model building, crab races, a ducky prize derby, Coast Guard videos, and various other talks, videos and marine related goings on including a crab feed, and a nice wine and hors d'oeuvres reception for the participants Saturday evening at Gracie's Sea Hag Inn just behind the display area.
