Winter Whale Watch Week Begins

While the winter winds blow and the rains continue to fall, gray whales are passing the Oregon Coast on their southward migration.

Bring binoculars to the coast for a chance to view these majestic creatures during winter whale watch week, which starts Wednesday, Dec. 26.

Roughly 18,000 whales will pass by Oregon, and there are 24 designated sites along the coast that offer some of the best viewpoints.

The Cape Perpetua Visitor Center near Yachats will be offering presentations on whales all week, and the whale watching center in Depoe Bay will be open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Dec. 30.
