Oregon Coast Attractions

Sea Lion Watching Zodiac Style on the Whales Tail

Whale Watching Report For Aug. 8
The whales are back. Whales started showing up late this morning feeding in close to shore off Goverment Point and Boiler Bay. Later in the afternoon they moved closer to Depoe Bay, just off North Point and just outside the entrance to the harbor. The weather looks good for tomorrow with light winds and sea conditions. We hope you will join on the Whales Tail for an exciting adventure.

Whale Watching Report For Aug. 7
The day started out foggy and remain that way for most of the day, which did not help us find the whales. We had multiple trips today but no whales were to be seen. There is plenty of food around for them to eat, they just decided to go into hiding. Hopefully they will be back tomorrow. The ocean was beautiful, glassy flat, no wind, swell 2 feet.

Whale Watching Report For Aug. 6
It was another nice day on the ocean with overcast skies all day, but the wind and sea conditions were light, North 5 knots, swell 3 feet. We had multiple whale sightings off Goverment Point and Boiler Bay. The same whales have been feeding there for the past 5 days now. Researchers have reported that there are plenty of mysid shrimp around for the whales to feed on. Tomorrows weather and whale sightings should be good. Come on down and join us on a whale watching trip, zodiac style aboard the Whales Tail.
