West Coast Whale Watching in Gold Beach

West Coast Whale Watching in Gold Beach

Monday, January 17, 2011

Prepare yourself for the experience of a lifetime! Who knew whale watching could be this easy? Charter a boat or find some binoculars and capture a glimpse of these magnificent mammals.

The most ideal time to observe the California gray whale in Gold Beach is between the months of December and May. The rest of the year visitors may catch a glimpse of the "local" whales that have taken up permanent residence off the coast. The best time for watching is early in the morning and later in the evening, when the ocean is calm.

For land-based sightings, there are look out points all along the Oregon coast with big "Whale Watching" signs. The best local look out point is Cape Sebastian, which is only five miles south of Gold Beach.

An unforgettable experience combines perfectly with a Unique Inns member:
