This is the perfect program for someone interested in the variety, quality and abundance of Oregon cuisine. That it was set in an absolutely gorgeous place made this an extraordinary experience.

If you are looking for a delightful program on the Oregon coast, this is the one for you. One of the highlights was seeing a whale up close~~in October!

Oregon Coastal Catch...very interesting program in a unique part of the US. The area in and around Lincoln City has secret places to explore and interesting restaurants, galleries and opportunities to explore the coast. Leaders for this program - exceptional. I traveled to the coast at the end of May...a little cool but the flowers in bloom...lovely.

Great program, primarily due to the personalities and knowledge of the leaders, Carol and Lynn Unser. Remember that it's COLD on the Oregon Coast (in the 50's) and dress accordingly!

Carol and Lynn were so welcoming and created a relaxing atmosphere. They were very informed, and I enjoyed their presentations. I learned so much about the ecological history of the Oregon Coast. The food and field trips were excellent as were the guest presenters.

Never was a Road Scholar before, but I am "born again!" People compatible to me DO exist, and this trip proved it to me! Thanks!

We had a great time due to the balance of activities, the knowledge of the presenters and the magnificent setting. The Oregon Coast is home to the Unsers and they welcomed us into their "home" with enthusiasm, warmth and a passion for all that we learned.

This was a wonderful program. It combined informative and entertaining lectures with interesting and varied activities. Food and lodgings were excellent. I have been on several Road Scholar trips, and this was one of the best.

Coastal Catch was our first Road Scholar program and it most certainly will not be the last. The programs were educational and very enjoyable. The food was great! We can't wait for our next choice.
