You’re shore to spot something

Whale spotting opportunities will abound in Depoe Bay this Saturday and Sunday, July 28 and 29, as the Oregon Chapter of the American Cetacean Society hosts its Seventh Annual Summer Whale Watch Weekend.

The event will see volunteers and certified naturalists stationed at Boiler Bay State Park from 10 am to 1 pm each day to help visitors watch for whales and other wildlife as well as providing information on whales, dolphins, porpoises and their habitats. This family friendly event is free and open to all.

Guests will be able to find answers to questions such as “what is a cetacean?” “what are the differences between a dolphin and porpoise?” “what is baleen?” and much more.

Guests will also get to learn about the Pacific Coast Feeding Group of gray whales and the myth of resident whales.

For more information, contact Joy Primrose at or 541-517-8754.
