Winter Whale Watching Week December 27-31, 2014
Winter is an exciting time for nature lovers on the Oregon Coast! Thousands of visitors experience the rare thrill of a grey whale sighting as an estimated 18,000 grey whales make their annual Southbound journey to the Baja lagoons of Mexico.
Most of the whales will be about 5 miles out, but some can be seen as close as 1-2 miles off shore. Trained Whale Watching Spoken Here® volunteers will be present at Shore Acres State Park Dec. 27-31, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. to help visitors spot these mysterious and rarely seen creatures.
