“WHALE WATCHING CAPITAL OF THE OREGON COAST“
Come see for yourself!
Carved and shaped by powerful natural forces, Depoe Bay is the site of the world’s smallest navigable harbor. Waves run beneath lava beds creating spouting geysers up to 100 feet into the air. Sea caves line our scenic rocky shoreline.
Depoe Bay is teeming with marine life and rich in natural resources. The stunning beauty of Depoe Bay’s rugged rocky coastline, snug harbor and easy access via Highway 101 make it one of the most popular destinations along the Central Oregon Coastline. A huge sea wall runs the length of the downtown area allowing visitors to shop or dine always within view of the ocean. We have the distinction of being the only town on the entire coast with this amenity. Our fairy tale fishing village is brimming with colorful stores, gift shops and galleries featuring maritime collectibles, fine art, apparel and the tastiest candies and salt water taffy available. Watch whales frolic and feed in our bay, explore tide pools and feel the power of the surf. At day’s end, follow the path of the setting sun as it sinks into the Pacific in a blaze of glory.
