A short trip north from Newport Oregon is Depot Day. The entrance to the harbor passes under the highway into a completely enclosed but very small Harbor.
on one side of the coast highway there are numerous shops and on the other side you can walk along the Cliffs and look directly in the ocean. Depot Bay is famous for its whale watching, the well stay there or you’re around and you can usually see one or two from the walkway.
Depot Bay is also the home of some very good restaurants, if you visit there plan on having lunch or dinner.
One our favorite restaurants is Tidal Raves Seafood Grill. The food is great and the view is even better. You can sometimes spot whales while dinning.
