Gray whales migrate South from their feeding grounds in the Bering and Chukchi seas around
Alaska from mid-December through January. They are heading to their breeding grounds in

Then from late March to June the whales migrate North back to Alaska. On each trip,
approximately 18,000 gray whales pass close to the Oregon Coast.
Every year in early winter, tides on the Oregon Coast are higher than usual. These extreme high
tides, commonly called “King Tides,” occur at a few specific times during the year when the

moon and earth are in alignment, thereby increasing their gravitational influence on the tides.
