Wiley's Seaplane Port (FAA LID: 2OG3) is a seaplane base on the Willamette River in Lake Oswego, Oregon, within the Portland metropolitan area. It was activated in March 1979,[1] and run by Dave Wiley for nearly 30 years.

Wiley, a founder of the Columbia Seaplane Pilots Association, was one of two pilots killed in a Willamette River floatplane crash on July 28, 2007.[2] After an investigation, the National Transportation Safety Board reported probable cause of the crash was "corrosion" and a "fatigue fracture" involving the left wing of the 67-year-old float-equipped Taylorcraft BF12 owned by Wiley.[3]
