An Insider’s Guide to Whale Watching in Newport, Oregon
Whale watching on the Oregon Coast is a year-round activity; sightings peak according to whale migrations. For instance, from December to January and late March to June, thousands of grey whales migrate north towards Alaska, so it’s a great time to view these magnificent mammals. If you prefer to find a few spots along the coast, it’s best to head out in the morning when the sun won’t be in your face. We’ve gone ahead and made a list of some great onshore whale watching locations near our Newport, Oregon, hotel.
If you’re unable to get to these locations, anywhere along the Oregon Coast has the opportunity to grant whale sightings. Spouts are the most common sighing you’ll have from the shoreline. For a closer look, we recommend bringing a pair of binoculars or booking a charter near Newport, Oregon. Here’s a list of a few nearby whale watching tour guides:
