Depoe Bay

boiler bay depoe bayCarved and shaped by powerful natural forces, Depoe Bay is the site of the  world’s smallest navigable harbor. Waves run beneath lava beds creating spouting  geysers up to 60 feet into the air. Sea caves line our scenic rocky shoreline.

Your visit to the “Whale Watching Capital of the Oregon Coast” is sure to be a memorable one. There is a resident pod of grey whales which makes its home off Depoe Bay from March through December. Visitors from everywhere come to whale watch either from the new Whale Watch Center, the many shore observation spots or you can take a charter out for a closer look.

Depoe Bay has the smallest natural navigable harbor in the world consisting of six square acres. Because of the proximity to the ocean, fishermen or whale watchers can be from dockside to viewing or fishing in a matter of minutes.

A huge sea wall runs the length of the downtown area which enables visitors to shop or dine always within view of the ocean. This is the only town on the entire coast with this amenity. Waves run beneath lava beds and build pressure to spout water as high as 60 feet into the air. These are known as spouting horns and are visible during turbulent seas and stormy weather.

Hospitality abounds in Depoe Bay’s wide range of lodging. Choose from plush  resort hotels, charming motels, B&B’s, timeshare condos and RV parks. Many are  ocean front with spectacular ocean views.

Depoe Bay’s cozy, casual cafes and fine restaurants feature every cuisine, most  with our bountiful fresh sea-food as the centerpiece. Enjoy lavish buffets that  are hometown favorites, sample award winning wines and dance to live music when  the stars come out!
