Whale Watch Week

Thursday, March 27, 2014 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

During Whale Watch Week, thousands of Oregonians and visitors from all over flock to the Oregon Coast to look for gray whales making their annual northward migration. Gray whales leave the calving grounds off Baja California and head past Oregon on their way up to the Arctic. Be sure to come take a look; trained volunteers are stationed at state parks up and down the coast to offer tips on spotting the big mammals.

Here at the HMSC Visitor Center, we will have special programming every day during Whale Watch Week. At 1:30pm, attend a marine mammal program in Hennings Auditorium featuring hands-on whale biofacts such as baleen and skulls. Come visit our marine mammal displays and exhibits, see a marine mammal video in the auditorium, and keep up with local gray whale sightings by checking our posted lists. We're open daily from 10 am – 5 pm for this special Whale Watch Week event.
