3/27 - 3/31 Spring Whale Watch Week, Manzanita Oregon and 23 other locations 10 am - 1 pm


We love to watch our whales! Whales are visible along Oregon’s shores all year long although some months are better than others.

Whale-watching enthusiasts will head to the Oregon coast beginning next Saturday for Spring Whale Watch Week.

Whale Watching Spoken Here annual volunteers will be at 24 locations spread out on the coast during spring break week, beginning March 23.

Spring watching begins in late March as the grey whales travel north on their way towards Alaska. The first surge swims by around the end of March and we watch the north-bound whales all the way until June.

If you’re in the Manzanita area – the nearby Neahkahnie Mountain Overlooks offer some of the best seats in the house for spotting whales!
