Explore the Oregon Coast Aquarium
Leave Eugene and head to the town of Depot Bay where you will be able to visit the Whale Watching Center and hopefully see humpback and/or grey whales spouting and breaching in the Pacific Ocean! You will have time to explore the quaint and beautiful downtown area and have lunch while here.
You will continue south to Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area. From exploring tide pools teeming with life to witnessing Oregon’s tallest lighthouse, there is something for every visitor at Yaquina Head. Next, you will visit the Oregon Coast Aquarium. A series of underwater walkways leads the visitor from the dark, quiet canyons of the Orford Reef, through the sparkling and teeming waters of Halibut Flats, and finally into the vast blue expanse of the Open Sea. You will end the day by checking in at your Newport hotel.
On the morning of day 2, you will stop at the Yaquina Bay Bridge so that you can take pictures of this Newport icon. You continue driving south, stopping at several opportunities for pictures, short walks, beaches and dramatic geologic formations.
Next you will visit the Historic Old Town district of Florence, an inland coastal village originally built on docks lining the Siuslaw riverbanks. Admire the Oregon Dunes, a unique area of windswept sand that is the result of millions of years of wind and rain erosion on the Oregon Coast. These are the largest expanse of coastal sand dunes in North America.
