Top Spots for Whale Watching Around Cannon Beach

Ecola State Park -  Offers ideal viewing for spotting whales just steps from the main parking lot. Whale sightings are common from the Ecola Point parking lot or hikes to the top of the Clatsop Loop Trail.

Grassy Dunes - From Haystack Rock along the beach there is just enough height to catch glimpses of whale spouts in the sea. Stake out a sandy clearing among the beach grass with binoculars, beach chairs, and beverages.
