Kelly’s Brighton Marina Gets Crabby

Kelly LaViolette moved to the Tillamook Coast as a teenager. He fell in love and never left. Today, he shares his passion with visitors, helping them appreciate the region and “get their feet wet”: his business, Kelly’s Brighton Marina, offers everything you need for clamming and crabbing, as well as campsites, boats and a place to cook your catch. It’s the perfect spot to soak in the salty air and get a taste of the ocean—and to hang out with Kelly, a seasoned pro who’s happiest when he’s showing people his favorite place.
