Current Whale Sightings 2016

Date: Thursday, August 25, 2016 at 15:41
Current Report:
Getting just a little tire of this message

Said with a sparkle in my eye I feel like I'm getting tired of telling you this but there are at least 12-15 whales out there. On a normal summer the reports change once in a while like we had to go a mile or two south or north to find them but not this summer. Same message every day it seems. A dozen plus whales and we are watching them between a few minutes till five minutes after we leave the harbor. It is just great whale watching.

Current Report:
Sightings remain excellent

The whale sightings remains as it has been all summer long with teriffic trips and lots of whales to see. Battled fog again today as we have for the past several weeks but there are so many whales they are still quite easy to find. Have not had a skunking on a whale watch trips for probably the entire summer.

Current Report:
Lots of whales

Another real good day of whale watching with plenty of whale sightings on our trips today. Hard to remember a summer that has been as good as this one.

Current Report:
Everywhere there be whales

The daily whale watch tours just began about an hour ago but even without a report I can give you an accurate one for the day. They are everywhere even a few places that will make boat operators pucker up a bit. There were two or three of them right smack in front of the entrance to the Depoe Bay harbor which caused all of the boats to proceed with as much caution as they could muster. There were also quite a few south of the city out in front of Whale Cove and there were a couple northerly ones up nortth of the city. In other words, "everywhere there be whales".

Current Report:
We had a site crash... is a updated report on what has been going on

The whale watch report crashed yesterday for some unknown reason and we lost about two months worth of reports not to get them back so we will begin today and try to catch you up.

Whale watching has been beyond belief all summer long with a dozen and sometimes more critters in our area all summer long. Not one day when we have gotten out have we not had greaat sightings. We expect that to continue all the way into the early fall.
