ABOUT DEPOE BAY OREGON
Your visit to the “Whale Watching Capital of the Oregon Coast” is sure to be a memorable one. There is a resident pod of grey whales that make their home off Depoe Bay 10 months of the year. Visitors from everywhere come to whale watch, either from the many shore observation spots, or from boat charters that offer a closer look.
Depoe Bay has the smallest natural navigable harbor in the world, six acres in size. Because of the proximity to the ocean, fishermen or whale watchers can be from dockside to viewing or fishing in a matter of minutes.
A huge sea wall runs the length of the downtown area which enables visitors to shop or dine always within view of the ocean. This is the only town on the entire coast with this amenity. Waves run beneath lava beds and build pressure to spout water as high as 60 feet into the air. These are known as spouting horns and are visible during turbulent seas and stormy weather.
Shopping, dining, fishing, and whale watching are favorite activities in Depoe Bay and there are also special events at various times of the year.
Depoe Bay is surrounded by a number of scenic parks, award winning restaurants, top notch motels, ocean fresh seafood and outstanding scenery. Regardless of the season, you won’t regret visiting Depoe Bay and the Oregon Coast.
