Blowholes and Whales Along 804 Trail

Just north of Yachats is an excellent whale watching and photography viewpoint. The 804 Trail extends approximately 2 miles from the north of Smelt Sands State Park to Yachats State Park on the north side of the Yachats River. Crashing waves and blowholes.

[Janet, 07/25/2013]

Includes two natural blowholes...perhaps not as dangerous and spectacular as Hawaii's, but we can enjoy when migrating gray whale blowholes are elusive. Elsewhere in town is an artificial whale blowhole in someone's lawn.
