Whale Watching Report from the Whales Tail

Whale Watching Report For Oct. 10
No whale watching today as they are forecasting rough ocean conditions, visit: Marine Weather Forecast

Scarback the gray whale the most famous resident whale has been sighted off Depoe Bay. Scarback was first sighted this morning on the Whales Tail's first trip of the day. Scarback has been around since 1979 and can be identified by the large scar on her right dorsal hump. It is believed that Scarback got her famous scar from an exploding harpoon, which some believe she acquired between 1985 and 1988. The orange coloration of the scar is from whale lice, this is a crustacean that eats the dead skin of the whale and is beneficial for the whale. The pictures above are from todays whale watching trip aboard the Whales Tail.
