The climate is maritime but the temperatures are in the 50's year round with occasional dips to the 40's in the winter and some 70's in the summer. Depoe Bay gets less rain than Portland but summer fogs occur when the valley is hot.

Tourism is the main industry and people are coming year round because winter storms are as spectacular as the summer sunsets.

Local area activities include the Classic Wooden Boat Show, Crab Feed, and Ducky Derby the last full weekend of April, the Fleet of Flowers on Memorial Day, fireworks on July 3rd in Boiler Bay, the Annual Indian Style Salmon Bake the third Saturday in September, and the Christmas lighting ceremony the Friday after Thanksgiving.

It is home of the world's smallest navigable harbor, the home of a small commercial fishing and whale watching fleet. Grey whales hang around here from March - December and can also be seen with the southern migration in December and the northern migration in March. A resident pod stays here most of the year. We also have great "spouting horns" when there are storms and heavy surf.
