Depoe Bay is a unique destination teeming with marine life. It has a rocky coastline of sea caves and lava beds spouting geysers with each crashing wave.

Things to Do in Depoe Bay, OR

Depoe Bay is a nature lover’s dream destination. Nicknamed the “Whale watching Capital of the Oregon Coast”, visitors can watch orcas and huge grey whales frolic and blow water spouts right in the bay for about 10 months of the year. The surging waves are popular for surfing or you can walk for miles along the firm sand. Younger visitors can discover rock pools teeming with ocean life in miniature. Fishing can be enjoyed from the beach or dockside and boat charters take visitors out for an exciting day deep-sea fishing for rockfish, salmon, halibut and tuna. The waterfront offers great shopping and dining opportunities within sight of the ocean. Gift shops, art studios, galleries with fine collectibles, saltwater “taffy” and maritime souvenirs can all be found by browsing this quaint fairytale fishing village.
