Depot Bay, OR - USA National Park Photography

Depoe Bay, OR

Depoe Bay, OR is called the "Whale Watching Capital of the Oregon Coast”.  A resident pod of gray whales  makes its home off Depoe Bay from March through December.  Depoe Bay has the smallest natural navigable harbor in the world consisting of six square acres.

Because of the proximity to the ocean, anyone can be from dockside to viewing or fishing in a matter of minutes.

Waves run beneath lava beds and build pressure to spout water as high as 60 feet into the air. These are known as spouting horns and are visible during turbulent seas and stormy weather.
