Gray whales are on the move south once again and Oregon Parks and Recreation is inviting everyone to Winter Whale Watch Week Dec. 27-31.
Volunteers will staff Whale Watching Spoken Here sites 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. each day along the coast helping visitors learn about and find whales.
An estimated 25,000 Gray whales are expected to migrate past Oregon’s shores over the next several weeks as they head south to sunny Baja, Mexico’s calving lagoons.
Depoe Bay’s Whale Watching Center will be open 10 a.m.-4 p.m. daily and visitors can explore the exhibits and enjoy a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean.
Oregon State Parks will have a live stream going during Winter Whale Watch Week and can be seen on their YouTube channel.
