Port Orford offers great whale watching during the year.

Because of the unusually rich kelp and algae beds in Port Orford bay, California grays hang out here anytime during the year, and are usually most active here in the late summer - July through Sept.

The best whale-watching spots are Port Orford Heads, Cape Blanco and Battle Rock Park.

Visit the state's official whale watching site for more information.
