Because of its proximity to the ocean, fisherman or whale watchers can be from dockside to viewing or fishing in a matter of minutes. The harbor stirs at dawn every day of the year for explosive deep-sea fishing action. Charters sail year ’round for Ling Cod and 20 varieties of tasty rockfish, plus trophy Chinook and Coho Salmon, Halibut, Albacore Tuna and Dungeness crab during the seasons.
Depoe Bay is fortunate to have a resident pod of grey whales which makes its home here 10 months out of the year. Visitors from everywhere come to whale watch either from many shore observation spots or to take one of our charters out for a closer look. There is nothing quite so spectacular as seeing whales in their natural habitat. Whale watching trips aboard comfortable cruisers or speedy Zodiacs depart hourly for eye-popping, up-close tours of Depoe Bay’s exotic marine life. Bring the whole family!
The Depoe Bay Whale Center is Oregon’s newest State Park and the home of the highly acclaimed “Whale Watching Spoken Here” program. The center is dedicated to sharing information about whales and helping visitors to understand and appreciate these amazing creatures.
