  • This spot has lots of places to park and watch the waves crashing against the rocks and going up in the air. Certain times of the year, whales are swimming out in the ocean and close enough to see.  more »
  • This is a great spot to take some time to watch the whale migrations. You can watch from the roadside or hike down to the bay and stroll along the sandy beach.  more »
  • Fun area to stop, park, walk around and watch the big waves roll in. Felt like we could see forever north, south, and west. Even in September we were treated to whale sightings.  more »

  • I do the Whale Watching Spoken Here program Boiler Bay one of my favorite spots. Always clean and great viewing. Great in high tide to watch the waves!
  • An excellent spot for whale watching, and some incredible views. The waves crashing over the rocks. The sea birds.
  • Really cool place to stop and stretch your legs. It was not busy when I stopped but there seemed to be enough parking to accommodate quite a few visitors. Bathrooms onsite are also a bonus. Best part is the views. We even saw a couple whales when we stopped.
  • This is a great place to watch for whales and take great photos. You will see whales quite a bit till October and they have someone on hand to answer questions about the whales. They wave a yellow flag to show the whale watching ships that they spotted one. Very cool place to bring kids.
  • We almost always have to stop here whenever driving along the beautiful Oregon coastal highway 101 and we're near Depoe Bay
