Winter Whale Migration

About 18,000 Gray whales will pass by the Oregon Coast over the span of four weeks, from mid-December to mid-January. Much like Oregonian snowbirds, the Gray whales are heading south to Baja. The impetus? Pregnant whales lead the charge south from Alaska, where they will give birth in Baja after a one-year pregnancy. Most whales come within one to five miles of Oregon’s beaches, so you may be able to spot them from shore. If not, you can join a whale tour vessel to get a closer look.
