Oregon Coast Tours

76 Reviews
Oregon Coast
Stretching more than 350 miles (563 kilometers) along the Pacific Ocean, the Oregon Coast winds from the Columbia River to the California border. Multiple parks and forests grant close encounters with wildlife and ancient redwood groves, while coastal towns, beaches, and lighthouses make perfect pit stops.

The Basics 
Drive Highway 101 for ocean views of the Oregon coast. While it's possible to do the drive in one day, it's better to make a multi-day trip. Stop in coastal villages, play on the beaches, and take detours to the Clatsop, Siuslaw, and Rogue River-Siskiyou forests. Opt for a guided tour to ditch the map and instead soak up the scenery. Most tours stop at highlights including Cannon Beach, Ecola State Park, and Neahkahnie Overlook.

Seasonally, whale watching is a popular draw off the coast, while you can golf, ride horses, walk the beaches, and hike year-round. Browse art and antique galleries or dine on fresh-caught seafood in towns such as Rockaway Beach, Yachats, and Coos Bay.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • All beaches are free and open to the public. 
  • State or national parks and forests may require a small visitor fee. 
  • Most communities along Highway 101 have reduced speed limits, so be prepared to slow down when approaching towns.
  • Gas up when you see a filling station, as they are far apart in some stretches.
How to Get There
The Oregon Coast is divided into three subregions: north, central, and south coast. The best way to experience the coastline is to drive along scenic Highway 101. 

When to Get There
The Oregon coast is beautiful year-round, but skies are clearer and temperatures higher in summer and fall. Winter often brings coastal fog and chilly rain.

Oregon’s Best Beaches
Dozens of beaches dot the Oregon coast, inviting you to pop off to stroll the sand, explore tide pools, and admire coastal views. Cannon Beach near Portland is known for its striking Haystack Rock formation, while Cape Kiwanda—shadowed by a massive sandstone cliff—draws adventure seekers to its sand dunes and surfing waves. Rockaway Beach is a family favorite for calm waters and candy shops. Wildlife watchers flock to Seal Beach in Waldport to see harbor seals and migrating seabirds.
