Whale Watching Weeks Along The Coast


People from all over the world come to the southern Oregon coast to learn about the gray whales that travel along the coast each year. Whales are visible from Oregon’s shores all year long although some months are better than others. In the Winter watch nearly 20,000 gray whales from now through mid-January as they travel south to the warm lagoons of Baja Mexico.
 
The Whale Watching Spoken Here® program places volunteers at great whale watching sites between the Christmas Holiday and New Year’s day and during the last week in March. For more than 30 years, trained volunteers have helped visitors watch whales at sites along the Pacific Northwest coast. Learn more about whales at the Whale Watching Center in Depoe Bay year round, or at any location during the Whale Watch Weeks for an amazing display of ocean life!
