Get An Up-Close Look At Oregon’s Gentle Giants When You Take This Trip With Whale Research Eco-Excursions
If you’ve ever visited Depoe Bay, you know that if you hang out long enough at the Whale Watching Center, you’ll see some gray whales. Sometimes they come in close; other times you’ll only see the spouts out on the horizon.
If you want to see them up-close, you’ll want to hop aboard one of the many charter vessels that take folks out amongst these gentle giants. You have several companies to choose from, but one of our favorites is Whale Research EcoExcursions:
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!

If you visit the Oregon coast during the whale migration (mid-December to mid-January, and again from late March to early June), you’ll see even more whales! During each season, Oregon celebrates Whale Watching Week, and you can learn more about it here.
