Whale Watching Week
March 23 @ 10:00 am - March 31 @ 1:00 pm
Whale Watching Week is March 23rd through March 31st!
People come from all over the world to learn about the gray whales that travel along the Oregon coast each year. Whales are visible from Oregon’s shores all year long although some months are better than others.
Spring watching begins in late March as the gray whales travel north on their way towards Alaska. The first surge swims by around the end of March and we watch the north-bound whales all the way until June.
Summer & Fall bring whales that feed along our coast from June to mid-November. We typically don’t see hundreds of whales during this time but we consistently see between 5 and 15 whales every day!
The Whale Watching Spoken Here® program places volunteers at great whale watching sites during the two official watch weeks. For more than 30 years, our trained volunteers have helped visitors watch whales at sites in three states along the Pacific Northwest coast.
We definitely know whale watching. Learn more about whales at the Whale Watching Center in Depoe Bay year round, or join us at any of our locations during the Whale Watch Weeks for an amazing display of ocean life!
