Better get there today (Monday) to go whale watching

We do have whale watch boats going out today (Monday) as we have a really small swell and we are seeing from the shoreline lots of spouts out there. That means the migrating whales are going by Depoe Bay right now and will be there for about a month. The key is to get there on a day when the ocean weather is good. Today is one of those days. Not sure about tomorrow yet as it looks like growing swell.

Holiday whale watching coming soon

Hey folks....The southerly migration of the Gray whales will be beginning soon. Historically they begin to go by the area around the 20th of December give or take a few days. I suggest making your reservations beginning the day after Christmas, December 26th as that normally is almost a sure thing of seeing them as they cruise by the Depoe Bay area. Of course the ocean weather always plays into those plans. The office will be open between now and Christmas on a limited schedule and then open full time after Christmas. If no asnwer leave a phone message or you can ask questions over the website inquiry link. We will run trips before Christmas Day also if we see the whales going by and the ocean weather is satisfactory.

Whale watch trips scheduled

Normally this time of year it is around the 20th of December when the southerly migration starts to go by but we will be watching and as soon as we begin to see them we will report that. Make your plans for around the 20th of December and forward for your plans and hope for some nice ocean conditions.

Winter is coming & time to take some time off

Beginning now and thru the winter months we will try to report from time to time the happenings and any news on the 2017 season when we get that information. It has been a really good 2016 season as our vessels all had record years thanks to our loyal and new customers out there. We will see you at the trade shows next January thru March and will report on those as they get closer where we will be in attendance. The office will be open this winter on most days when the ocean is in good shape and when we have fishing and whale watch trips. If you have any questions you can ask them on the Trdewinds website information request link or call the office directly. Thanks again and see you in Spring 2017.

Saturday 10/08 whale watch report

Lots of whales still in the area with good sightings mainly to the south of the harbor though there were some up north as well. Probably in a few weeks to a month we wil begin to see them leaving the area for the trip down south on the southerly migration.

Some bad weather for a few days

Very heavy seas are with us here this afternoon and sounds like it might be a few more days before it all moves out of here. This is ceertainly the time of year when we get these quick hitting storms that hang around for a few days and then we get a few good days. Right now sounds like Friday into the weekend is looking better.
