Depoe-Bay is located along the central coast of Oregon, approximately two hours south of Portland. This unique seaside village has dozens of eateries, art galleries, specialty shops and even wine tasting in a "cave!" But, what makes Depoe Bay a favorite among tourist is its unique tidal attractions and magnificent ocean scenery that makes for some great photographic opportunities! This picturesque bay is landlocked, except for the small harbor entrance that carves its way through the rocks and tough basalt formations. Visitors can watch as boats make their way to and from the sea through the narrow channels leading under Highway 101 to the harbor. Locals call this "shooting the hole." Depoe Bay has also become known for its whale watching excursions and fishing boat charters. Other points of interest include Depoe View Park, or the "Hidden Rocks at Depoe Bay." Throughout this area, you'll find some amazing cliffs, weird coves and hidden caves, large and small crevices and craggy boulders for climbing and exploring. All of this sits 50 feet above the roaring ocean as it pounds on the cliffs below. Caution is advised while exploring this area. Boiler Bay at Depoe Bay is another awesome area to explore, known for its tide pools, caves and meandering paths over and around rocks. Getting down to and back up to this spot is a rather strenuous climb, but for those who can't make it, there are picnic tables with spectacular views from the parking lot. Depoe Bay is also home to the annual Indian-Style Salmon Bake, held every September.

Depoe Bay Weather & Climate

The Pacific Ocean is the single most influencing factor on the climate along the central coast of Oregon. Because of the normal movement of air masses from west to east, most of the systems moving across Oregon have been extensively modified while traveling over the ocean, or they dissipate completely before reaching dry land. This also keeps temperatures at a moderate level all year long. However, the unlimited supply of moisture available to those air masses is largely responsible for the abundant rainfall over western Oregon and in the higher elevations. Also, beginning near and following the coastline, is the Coast Range Mountains, which also exerts an important influence on the climate. This range forces the air to rise as it moves eastward and the resulting cooling and condisation produces some of the heaviest annual rainfalls in the U.S. along the higher western slopes.
