Whale Watching in Seaside, Oregon

Whales in Oregon!

People come from all over the world to learn about the gray whales that travel along the Oregon coast each year. Whales are visible from Oregon's shores all year long although some months are better than others.

In the Winter we watch nearly 20,000 gray whales from mid-December through mid-January as they travel south to the warm lagoons of Baja Mexico.

Spring watching begins in late March as the gray 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.

Summer & Fall bring whales that feed along our coast from June to mid-November. We typically don't see hundreds of whales during this time but we consistently see between 5 and 15 whales every day!
