Throughout the ride, opportunities for short hikes to waterfalls abound as guests spot birds of prey such as osprey and bald eagles. Following an active day, a relaxing drive brings guests to the wild and rugged coast of Oregon and the Inn at Arch Rock in Depoe Bay for a two-night stay.Day three promises a unique and exciting activity â whale watching!
