Gray whales migrate along the Oregon Coast between their summer and fall feeding grounds in the Bering Sea and calving area along the coast of Mexico. You can see them, often very close to shore, from many vantage points along the coast. Any location along the coast with an expansive view of the ocean can make a good whale-watching location. It is easier to spot whales during the morning, when the sun is behind you. The best approach is to scan the water with your naked eye, watching for spouts. When you spot a whale “blowing,” switch to binoculars for a close-up look.
