Whale Watch Center, Depoe Bay. Headquarters to the Whale Watch Spoken Here program that operates the twice-yearly Whale Watch Weeks, here you can hang out and learn a lot about whales as well as see them. Staff are always present to help you see whales in the Depoe Bay area. They can put on quite the show as they dive, shoot out their blowholes, spyhop and breach.

Whales migrate past here twice a year and thus the sightings greatly increase in late winter and early spring. But numerous whales loiter year-round in this area, the so-called “resident whales,” hanging out to take advantage of the cove's unique feeding grounds for phytoplankton.

Two stories exist at the Whale Watch Center: the upper floor and the bottom floor. Or you can linger outside along the seawall and spot the cetaceans, or just watch the many fishing vessels, Coast Guard craft and whale tour boats jetting in and out.

A myriad of displays about whales, seals and other sea life abound at the Whale Watch Center. You can even watch films on the subject.

Located at the southern end of the Depoe Bay Bridge, right next to the bay, on Hwy 101, Depoe Bay, Oregon. (541) 765-3407 and (541) 765-3304. Website
