Whales and Wildlife

As an official site of The Whale Trail, the Coupeville Wharf is often visited by seals, sea lions, grey whales, Dall’s porpoise, and even orcas. Upon whale and orca sitings, visitors and wharf staff are encouraged to ring the whale bell to signal site seers on land.

The Coupeville Wharf hosts a marine mammal exhibition, which is a collaborative effort between the Port of Coupeville and the WSU Extension Beach Watcher’s initiative. Within the exhibition, there are informative presentations and the skeletal remains of a young gray whale and a Dall’s porpoise.
