Oregon’s Blue Tide Happens Just Once A Year And You Don’t Want To Miss It

The Pacific Ocean is teeming with life, and we see signs of it all along the Oregon coastline. From the spouts of giant whales feeding just off the coast, to the tiny creatures that wash up on the beach, if you enjoy observing marine life, this is the place to be. Every year in late spring/early summer, Oregon’s beaches are the site of an incredible phenomenon: the blue tide.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
