Lincoln City is known for its "get away from it all" beach feel, and Depoe Bay is no exception. Depoe Bay is a sightseer's dream, featuring everything from whale watching, boat tours and rentals, great restaurants, and beautiful beach hotels to little shops with no names. In addition to the various attractions within this attraction, the actual bay is quite the sight to see. The waters are beautiful, blue, and relatively calm, especially in comparison to the waters along the rest of the Oregon Coast. -Cathryn D. Blue
Whale watching from the Oregon Coast doesn't get any better than at Depoe Bay Whale Watching Center. The position of the center atop a plateau overlooking the ocean is perfect for such novelties and the whales are fairly reliable. Whale enthusiasts on staff know the best time of day and year to see these magnificent creatures playing along the line where ocean meets sky. The center staff is friendly and helpful, and the atrium features plenty of information about the whales as well as some fossils. It's great for the whole family. -Cathryn D. Blue

The pelicans and oyster catchers provide a show as they fly by, eating whatever may be available. If you're standing near the water, watch out for rogue waves. They splash up pretty high.
