Head to the Coast to watch migrating whales

While whales may be seen along the coast any time of year, the peak season is when the whales are headed to their feeding grounds in Alaska from March through June. Depoe Bay is known as the whale-watching capital of the state. Start by visiting the Whale Watching Center where staff members will be standing by to answer questions and point out perfect whale watching places. Then find a front-row seat along the coast at any one of several observation points. Approximately 19,000 of these magnificent mammals make their way past the Oregon Coast on a 12,000-mile journey from Baja, Mexico, to the their summer feeding grounds in the Bering Sea.
