Oregon Coast Whale Watching Tips
Every winter, between 20,000-22,000 gray whales travel from northern Alaska to Baja, California. You can see them from shore, and it's truly an amazing sight. Morning light (with the sun at your back) is best for spotting the majestic creatures. First look for whale spouts with your naked eye, then use your binoculars to see more details. For a closer view, book a whale watching tour or even a plane ride!
