Depoe Bay

Depoe BayDepoe Bay is the site of the world’s smallest navigable harbor. Waves run beneath lava beds creating spouting geysers up to 60 feet into the air. Sea caves line Depoe Bay's scenic rocky shoreline.

Depoe Bay is teaming with marine life and rich in natural resources. The stunning beauty of Depoe Bay’s rugged rocky coastline, snug harbor and easy access via Highway 101 make it one of the most popular destinations along the Central Oregon Coastline. A huge sea wall runs the length of the downtown area allowing visitors to shop or dine always within view of the ocean. We have the distinction of being the only town on the entire coast with this amenity. Our fairy tale fishing village is brimming with colorful stores, gift shops and galleries featuring maritime collectibles, fine art, apparel and the tastiest candies and salt water taffy available. Watch whales frolic and feed in our bay, explore tide pools and feel the power of the surf. At day’s end, follow the path of the setting sun as it sinks into the Pacific in a blaze of glory.

Visitors from everywhere come to whale watch in Depoe Bay. You can spot whales either from many shore observation spots or to take a charter out for a closer look. There is nothing quite so spectacular as seeing whales in their natural habitat. Whale watching trips aboard comfortable cruisers or speedy Zodiacs depart hourly for eye-popping, up-close tours of Depoe Bay’s exotic marine life.

The Depoe Bay Whale Center is home of the highly acclaimed “Whale Watching Spoken Here” program. The center is dedicated to sharing information about whales and helping visitors to understand and appreciate these amazing creatures.
