Whale Research EcoExcursions - Whale Cove Inn: $40 for Whale Watching Tour, Museum Visit, and Whale Adoption Package from Whale Research EcoExcursions ($80 Value)

$40 for Whale Watching Tour, Whale Museum Visit, and Whale Adoption Package for One ($80 Value)

During the 90-minute whale watching tour, a pair of six-passenger speedboats head out to roam the waters around Depoe Bay. These excursions are led by Carrie Newell, a marine biologist who can give you the name and bio of each gray whale that motors by. She provides jackets, hats, and gloves for everyone on the tour, as well as blankets to stay warm and dry off after the final round of bobbing for whales. Along with more information about gray whales, the exhibits in the Whale, Sea Life & Shark Museum include factoids about sharks, seabirds, and pinnipeds. Spring and Winter migrations are both available. You'll also receive a gray whale adoption package, which includes an 8"x10" photo of your whale, an adoption certificate, a 20% discount on your next whale watching tour, and two tickets for your next trip to the museum.

Whale Research EcoExcursions

As a kid, marine biologist and gray-whale researcher Carrie Newell dreamed of working on Jacques Cousteau's team. In 2004, that dream approached reality when Jean-Michel Cousteau, Jacques's son, asked Carrie to contribute her groundbreaking research to The Gray Whale Obstacle Course, an episode in the first season of his PBS series. Carrie and her team of guides share their passion and knowledge for gray whales on daily, year-round trips through Whale Research EcoExcursions. After an educational talk, guides invite up to six guests to board a six-person ex-Coast Guard Zodiac and venture into waters where gray whales swim during summer feasts and winter migrations. They also teach patrons about marine life through the Whale, Sea Life & Shark Museum, which they stock with an extensive collection of shark, seabird, sea-lion, seal, and gray-whale artifacts.
