Whale Watching Tours in Oregon

Watching Whales on the Whales Tail Zodiac Style

Whale Watching Report For Aug. 5
Things have really improved this last week, the ocean conditions have been perfect, little or no wind, and the swell has been 3-4 feet. The whale sightings have greatly improved as we are now seeing multiple whales on our trips and they have been minutes away from the entrance. Tomorrow should be good weather and the whales were still here as of 7pm. Also, these friendly whales really seem to like the boat, or they like looking at the people as they cruise by close to have a closer look. Hope to see you aboard the Whales Tail for some exciting whale watching.

Whale Watching Report For Aug. 4
The day started out in grand fashion as we had great ocean conditions but cloudy skies. The first two whale watching trips were fantastic this morning as Icecap the whale started breaching. He breached on four different occasions and spyhopped three different times, he really is a great performer. The last two trips the fog moved in which made things difficult trying to find the whales.

Whale Watching Report For Aug. 3
It was a perfect day on the ocean, no wind, 4' swell, sunny skies. Now for the best part, the whales are here, some up North towards Goverment Point, and some right out front in the Bay. The whales put on an absolutely great performance showing their tails and coming over to the boat for a closer look at our passengers. If you were thinking about whale watching now is the time, zodiac style aboard the Whales Tail.
