Recommended Route: Traveling south on 101 from Depoe Bay the hwy distinctly rises in elevation. Signage to the right abruptly marks the turnoff on Otter Crest, little chance to correct a drive by. A few miles will pass before a turnaround presents itself. It is completely worth this effort because Otter Crest Loop is largely one way at its start.... More

Such a stunning view of the coastline and we saw whales after whales. We could have sat there all day. Beautiful.

A great place sitting high above ocean waters to watch for migrating whales. Best in October! The sunsets from there are glorious! Great place to set up a tri-pod for the photogs!

We stopped on our way to Newport along this loop. Saw 4-5 whales. On our way back to Lincoln City late afternoon. We stopped here again and saw at least a dozen whales surfacing and spouting. Spent at least one hour watch whales.

Take a drive, stop to take pictures and go down to the beach. This gives you a good look at the coast and a true sense of what nature created
