Class I Siletz Bay, OR

Siletz Bay (Siletz Bay Nonmotorized Boat Launch to Siletz Bay Nonmotorized Boat Launch)

The refuge, boasting some of the most scenic estuarine habitat along the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway, offers year-round access and guided summer interpretive tours for paddlers with their own canoes or kayaks. For scheduled dates and times, see the website. The refuge provides nursery grounds for coho and chinook salmon, steelhead and cutthroat trout. Paddlers may see ospreys, bald eagles, great blue herons, harbor seals, and hear many more birds along the willow-lined banks of the Siletz River. There is a nonmotorized boat launch adjacent to the small parking area for the refuge. Visitors can launch a canoe, kayak, paddleboard or other nonmotorized craft and paddle along the Millport Slough and Siletz River. The launch is free and open to the public from sunrise to sunset. Consult tides and weather before launching. (U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service)
