Luke Parsons is the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department Interpretive Ranger at the Depoe Bay Whale Watching Center. He will help visitors understand when, where and how to look for Oregon’s most common whale species. Cape Perpetua is a partner of Whale Watch Spoken Here, a program of Oregon State Parks that promotes whale watching at 24 designated locations along the Oregon coast (coming up this March 24 to 31, 2018).
These events are free and open to the public, but a Northwest Forest Pass, Oregon Coast Passport, federal recreation pass, or $5 day-use fee is required within the Cape Perpetua Scenic Area. For more information about passes or parking, contact the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center at (541) 547-3289.
