The Oregon Files is an adventure series of novels by American author Clive Cussler. The Oregon is a ship that was originally introduced in the Dirk Pitt novel Flood Tide. While the ship does not look like much, in reality it is a highly technologically advanced ship. Juan Cabrillo runs the ship like a business, and the crew helps the CIA to thwart terrorist activities.

Dirk Pitt and characters from The NUMA Files make occasional appearances in the series, connecting the Clive Cussler novels together into one universe. The Oregon Files started with the Golden Buddha in 2003 with a new novel in the series coming out nearly every year. Below is a list of The Oregon Files in order of when the books were published:
