Boiler Bay offers opportunities for picnicking, viewing scenery, viewing wildlife and bird watching.
This splendid panoramic viewpoint presents a good opportunity to see migrating and resident gray whales. Take your binoculars — this is one of the best sites in Oregon to see oceangoing birds (like shearwaters, jaegers, albatrosses, grebes, pelicans, loons, oystercatchers and murrelets). In 1910, an explosion sank the J. Marhoffer, and you can see the ship’s boiler at low-tide. A short, rough trail takes you to some of Oregon’s richest tide pools.

Winter temperatures are normally cool at the lower elevations and cold at the higher elevations. Although snow is possible in the lowest elevations, it is infrequent and does not stay on the ground for long.
Location: Boiler Bay is located on Oregon's Central Coast, off US Highway 101, one mile north of Depoe Bay.
