|Just as there are a multitude of creatures
living beneath the ocean's waves, so too are there many marine mammals
and birds visible on or near the surface. The most novel of these mammals
is the Gray whale. Yearly, pods of these air breathing marine animals migrate
past Gold Beach on their journey south from the Bering Sea to their calving
grounds in Baha Mexico. This migration starts in the fall, with whale sightings
near Gold Beach as early as November. These majestic animals are inspiring
to watch as they surface to breathe on their long ocean voyage.
While whale watching is a unique attraction at Gold Beach during the winter, year-round sea lion and bird watching is found right at the mouth of the Rogue River. Here, sea lions and pelicans gather to feed in the bountiful waters of the estuary. Pelicans make extraordinary plummeting dives to catch fish. Sea lions congregate in their amusing way, a delight to all members of your family. Nearby offshore islands serve as rookeries for these, and other marine animals. The Rogue River Canyon offers bird watchers many opportunities to view eagles, osprey and other wildlife in an abundance unknown in most areas so accessible.
