Oregon Coast Whale Sightings Still Going Strong

If you’re moseying your way up, or down, the Oregon Coast this month, keep an eye on the waters for the telltale signs of gray and orca whales: breaching, blowing, and spyhopping. While the big northward migratory rush peaks late in March, hundreds of slower mammals, especially mothers and their calves, bring up the rear well into June, making late spring a great time to enjoy a leisurely road trip up this gorgeous seacoast––and a chance to whale-watch relatively crowd-free.

Whale Watching Center
Make a point to stop in at the Whale Watching Center in Depoe Bay, a fun place for all ages to learn about the magnificent marine creatures from dedicated rangers and volunteers. Located at 119 SW Highway 101, the center is open Wednesday – Sunday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. until Memorial Day, and until 5 p.m. daily from Memorial Day through Labor Day weekend.
