Depoe Bay's coastline is studded with breathtaking sights – dramatic rock formations, geyser-like spouting horns, churning whirlpools, rainbows, breath-taking sunsets, and boundless sandy beaches - which are always open to the public. A huge seawall runs the length of Depoe Bay’s downtown area, enabling visitors to shop or dine always within view of the ocean.

Depoe Bay is recognized as the "Whale Watching Capitol of the Pacific Coast," thanks to its resident pod of gray whales, who live here ten months out of the year. The town is noted for being the "Smallest Navigable Harbor in the World." Spring and summer months teem with family fun festivities, and at many such events you will experience the bounty for which Depoe Bay is famous.

Beautiful sunsets abound on the central Oregon.

Spouting horns punctuate the seawall, shooting geyser-like plumes of seawater into the air.
