Whale Watching December through March is prime time for whale watching on the Brookings coast, but a sighting can occur year round. Gray whales are the most commonly spotted whales during this time as they make their annual migration to Baja, Mexico.
Tips for whale watching:
- Morning light (sun at your back) is the best time to catch sight of a whale
- Look for the Spout with your naked eye
- Use binoculars to get a closer look, focusing in on the area where you saw the spout
Whale Spoken Here volunteers will be on site at Harris Beach December 27-31 to assist visitors with whale sighting.
