One of the favorite activities of people heading to the Oregon Coast is whale watching. This excursion gets you out on the water within minutes and up close and personal with Gray Whales that call Depoe Bay home.

Experience the excitement of seeing gray whales “up close and personal” and other wildlife on one of our whale watching trips aboard the Whales Tail. We depart from picturesque Depoe Bay, Oregon which is only minutes from the beautiful Pacific Ocean. This is a thrilling and exciting ride for people who enjoy being out on the ocean or first timers who just want to experience being out on the ocean and have an enjoyable ride, also our whale watching trips are fun and informative.

The Whales Tail is a 26' zodiac style boat that carries up to 6 people. It was the first and original zodiac style whale watching boat on the Oregon Coast, designed specifically for Dockside Charters to give passengers the utmost in sightseeing and whale watching experiences. We have all the latest safety features and have been inspected.

One of the features the Whales Tail offers is a unique vantage point that gives you 360° viewing for observing Oregon's resident gray whales as they feed along the coast of Depoe Bay. Don't be surprised if you notice the whales watching you as intently as you watch them. We try to provide you with a once in a lifetime experience that is not to be missed along with some great memories.

If your primary goal is to see Gray Whales in action, these creatures usually come through Depoe Bay and stay from the end of May through October. While whales can be seen from the shore, the best viewing is often by boat.

Thank you for visiting our website, we hope to see you aboard the Whales Tail.
