Central coast welcomes giants for holiday migration

Coastal visitors and residents alike have an opportunity to view whales during Winter Whale Watch Week, which begins today (Wednesday) and runs through Sunday.

There will also be educational opportunities to learn about these oceanic titans. During the week, trained volunteers will be available at specified Whale Watching Spoken Here sites from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. daily to help visitors learn about the whales' migration, feeding habits, preservation, and to offer spotting tips.

"The 24 designated Whale Watching Spoken Here sites were selected because they are some of the best viewpoints to spot the roughly 18,000 whales that cruise past Oregon on their annual southbound migration," said Ian Fawley, interpretative ranger at the Depoe Bay Whale Watching Center.
