Newport Oregon is a marvelous location for travelers and nature enthusiasts. Explore Yaquina Bay, historic Nye Beach or the Pacific Ocean for relaxation, solitude and gorgeous, scenic views. During your stay, also be sure to visit Mariner Square for another unique tourist experience.

Mariner Square

Mariner Square is home to three exciting attractions: Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Museum, the Oregon Undersea Gardens, and The Wax Works museum. Often, group discounts are applied to passes for all three. But, for an impressive view of ocean life, be sure to descend beneath the sea at the Undersea Gardens, an important fixture in Newport since 1964. Stop by the Theatre to observe a live dive show where you can learn about the variety of sharks, skates, Octopus, wolf eels, rock fish, crabs, sea anemones, schools of fish, and more, that are housed there. The show is lead by educated scuba divers who provide a first-hand, interactive experience with the animals. Also, wander the circular path and gaze through large glass panes to see kelp forests, gardens of white and crimson anemones, and witness all the lovely sea creatures in their natural habitat.
