Whale Watching Through December 30th

The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department reminds the public that a chance to view gray whales during Winter Whale Watch Week is almost over. From today through December 30th, is prime viewing time. The 24 designated ‘Whale Watching Spoken Here’ sites were selected to be some of the best viewpoints to spot the roughly 18,000 whales that cruise past Oregon on their annual southbound migration. Trained volunteers are at the sites along the coast daily to help visitors learn about the whales migration, feeding habits and tips on how to spot the whales. The OPRD coordinates winter and spring whale watch weeks with federal, state and local organizations. More information about the Whale Watching Spoken Here program and a map of the official viewpoints are available online at www.whalespoken.org.
