Annual Whale Watch Week slated Dec. 26 – 31

Posted by The Oregon Coast / December 10, 2013

It’s almost that time of year again. No, not Christmas; we’re talking Winter Whale Watch Week at 24 sites along the entire length of the Oregon coast, where trained volunteers will be present to show visitors the gray whales. This year’s event is slated December 26-31, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the designated sites

This is not the only time you can see the whales, but during this period you actually receive help from knowledgeable volunteers in doing so. About 18,000 gray whales will pass by in roughly four weeks, from mid-December to mid-January, and the same locations (see sidebar) are still great viewing spots. Generally, the higher the site, the better the viewing, which makes the historic lookout at Neahkahnie Mountain a prime location.
