In 2014, the American Cetacean Society Oregon Chapter sponsored a stop on the Orca Tour featuring Erich Hoyt. Yaquinna Head and Don Davis Park in Newport were added to The Whale Trail at that time.
In 2015 we began working with a team led by the Oregon Marine Reserve Partnership, including Oregon State Parks, to add new sites along the Oregon Coast, including Sea Lions Cave.
In 2018, the first Whale Trail sign in Oregon was installed and dedicated at Don Davis Park in Newport.
