Come see the Traditional Dory Boat Display!
Pacific City fishermen and women have launched dory boats through the surf at Cape Kiwanda since the early 1900s. Dory fishermen and women remain an integral part of the traditional lore and contemporary life of the community for residents and tourists alike. Cape Kiwanda is one of the only places on the West Coast where hundreds of dories are launched through the surf. But how do they do? It's all about the boat.
Come check out these incredibly unique vessels that are often built right here in South Tillamook County. There will be five dories that span time from the 50s up to modern day and really showcase the evolution of the dory boat. Learn how they are built and the key differences to look for in a recreational and commercial vessel.
The Traditional Dory Display will be located at the grass lot next to Lori's Ocean Clippers and across the street from Mugg County Park. The Display will be there on Friday and Saturday.
