OREGON COAST (KPTV) -

If you're looking for something fun to do after Christmas, the annual Winter Whale Watching Week on the Oregon Coast is about to start.

It will start Sunday, Dec. 27 and runs until next Thursday, Dec. 31. Officials say visitors should be able to see gray whales that are heading south to Mexico.

Volunteers with the Whale Watching Spoken Here program will be at 24 different sites from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. to answer questions. You can find a list of the sites on whalespoken.org.

Officials with the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department want to remind visitors to check oregonstateparks.org and tripcheck.com for weather-related alerts and closures before heading to the coast.
