“a miraculous & rugged, basalt-rimmed bay”
A miraculous and rugged, basalt-rimmed bay, Boiler Bay is a great place to watch wild surf action on the rocky spurs. This splendid panoramic viewpoint presents a good opportunity to see gray whales year round. Take your binoculars -- this is one of the best sites in Oregon to see ocean-going birds (like shearwaters, jaegers, albatrosses, grebes, pelicans, loons, oystercatchers and murrelets). In 1910, an explosion sank the J. Marhoffer, and you can see the ship's boiler at low-tide.
I gotta say this is one of the coolest places to come during a winter storm. The waves hitting the coastal rocks are out of this world. Its crazy just how massive these rollers can get! Make sure to come on high tide and be prepared to get wet and be constantly fighting the wind!
