Pick Your Post

Whale spotting is part luck, part perfect timing, so mark your calendar. Twice a year (in March and December), whale-savvy volunteers staff 28 posts along the Oregon coast, eager to share their knowledge with anyone passing by. You can watch from land or sea and pick up loads of info from either perch.
