“Whale watching capital of the Oregon coast.” Depoe Bay is the worlds’ smallest navigable harbor. Waves run beneath lava beds creating spouting geysers. Sea caves and tide pools line the rocky shoreline. Depoe Bay teams with marine life. This beautiful coastline and snug harbor on Highway 101 make it one of the most popular coastal destinations.
Depoe Bay is home to a pod of grey whales. Watch them from the shore or take a charter. Whale watching trips depart hourly. Deep-sea fishing charters sail year-round for Chinook and coho salmon, halibut, albacore tuna and Dungeness crab. There’re sandy beaches, too!
