Pacific Coast Whales
What can you expect to see when you go whale watching on the Pacific Coast of North America? There are so many beautiful and incredible whales here. I love to watch them, to listen to them and to recreate them as small sculptures that are worn and enjoyed as meaningful jewelry by others who love whales. See all our whales at All Animal Jewelry.
We have a special winter program for watching Pacific Coast Whales on the central Oregon Coast.Volunteers staff various vantage points from Cape Perpetua, south of Yachats, to Lincoln City. With the aid of binoculars, help visitors locate and identify whales. There is a resident pod of gray whales that stay in the Depoe Bay area all the year round.
There is also an excellent Whale Watching Center and museum in Depoe Bay located on the north side of the Depoe Bay channel. Depoe Bay, if you didn't already know, is the World's Smallest Navigable Harbor as listed in Ripley's Believe It or Not! Expect to see Humpback Whales, Gray Whales, Fin Whales, Minke Whales, Blue Whales and the infamous sea wolf, the Killer Whale!
Dolphins are also in the whale family and are found along this coast. You can spot them as their profile is highlighted in a rising wave. It's really special!
