Whale Research EcoExcursions - Whale Cove Inn: $35 for a Whale-Watching Tour, Museum Visit, and Whale Mug or Tote Bag from Whale Research EcoExcursions ($70 Value)

The Deal

$35 for a whale-watching package (a $70 total value)

  • 90-minute whale-watching tour (a $40 value)
  • Ceramic coffee mug with a whale photograph or whale-watching tote bag (a $15 value)
  • Entrance to the Whale, Sea Life & Shark Museum (a $5 value)
  • Two extra tickets for a future visit to the Whale, Sea Life & Shark Museum (a $10 value)<p>

During the 90-minute whale-watching tour, a pair of six-passenger ex-coast guard Zodiacs head out to roam the waters around Depoe Bay. These excursions are led by marine biologist Carrie Newell and her team, who can give you the name and bio of each gray whale that cruises by. She provides jackets, hats, and gloves for everyone on the tour, as well as blankets to stay warm while observing the whales and other marine life.

Along with information about gray whales, the exhibits in the Whale, Sea Life & Shark Museum include factoids about sharks, seabirds, sea lions and tide pool organisms. You’ll also receive a whale-watching tote bag, or a ceramic coffee mug each emblazoned with a whale photo taken by Carrie herself, as well as 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.

Was very educational and a fun experience to go out in a Zodiac on the ocean.

This was such a great experience! Carrie is really knowledgeable and so much fun. Worth every cent. I highly recommend it!

It was fantastic! Cap Dan was entertaining and knowledgeable about the hump back whales. We saw a total of three different whales up close and how to tell the difference between them. It was a great experience for the whole family to enjoy and a great thing to do to learn more about the nature of the hump back whales and ocean life around them
