whale watchingWhale Watching

Whale watching is a fun year round activity for the entire family in Brookings-Harbor.  When you spot a whale’s spout for the first time you will be hooked.  Binoculars will help spot the Gray Whale (one of the most common whales along the Oregon Coast) when visiting one of local beaches:  Harris Beach State Park, Sportshaven Beach, Cape Ferrelo, Lone Ranch Beach, Crissy Fields State Park, McVay State Park, or charter a boat.

Gray whales leave their arctic homes and make their way south to Baja to give birth; the migration peak is mid December to mid January.  Spring migration is from mid to late March.  In addition to Gray whales, you may also have the opportunity to view humpbacks.
