Their intensely arranged yet hilarious, interactive performance blends music and comedy so seamlessly that you will be left stunned and wondering, “how did all of that come out of only four guys?!” We could go on, but would rather show you with their own music in this video:

Tickets for The Coats President’s Day weekend Salmon Room performance are just $15 per person and available in person at Ko-Kwel Gifts or by phone: 541.756.8800 /toll free 800.953.4800

Book the Mill Casino Whale Watching Hotel and RV Park Package Before it is too Late!

Local Attractions, Packages Comments Off

Whale watching season is here, and an estimated 18,000 gray whales are passing the Oregon Coast right now on their  journey to the Baja lagoons of Mexico.  Most of the whales are about 5 mile off shore, but some can be seen as close as 1-2 miles off shore.

One of the prime viewing locations, Shore Acres State Park, happens to be located nearby.  Whale watchers gather here at this time of year to catch a glimpse of the whales spouting, breaching (heads straight up in the water), flukes and tails.

When you book The Mill Casino’s Whale Watching Hotel and RV Park Package before January 31, 2013, guests will receive:

Packages start at $149 in the Hotel and $70 in RV Park.

Time is running out!  To book this special stay, call reservations at 800-953-4800, ext. 3 or visit www.themillcasino.com/accommodations before January 31, 2013

Here are some interesting facts about gray whales we found:

  • Gray Whales are noted for their 12,000-mile annual migration from the Arctic Ocean to Mexico in the winter and their return north in the spring.
  • Whalers nicknamed the Grays “Devil Fish” because they fought so hard to defend their babies.
  • Today, they are best known for being friendly to people.
  • In the 1600-1700s Gray Whales in the Atlantic were hunted to extinction.
  • They were hunted almost to extinction two different times in the Pacific Ocean.
  • Starting early in the 1900s, the birthing lagoons were protected by the Mexican government.
  • The United Nations joined in the protection (1935), as did the International Whaling Commission (1946), but the moratorium against whaling wasn’t started until 1986.
  • The Grays made a good recovery and were taken off the endangered list in 1994, but are still threatened.
  • The reason for the migration south is to give birth to their young in the warm, calm bays of Mexico.
  • Gray Whale babies are 15 feet long and weigh 2,000 at birth
  • The grow up to 45 feet long and weigh 70,000 pounds.
  • They return north and spend the summer feeding in the Bering and Chukchi Seas (they seldom eat during migration).
  • About 200 Gray Whales don’t continue to Alaska, but stay along the Oregon Coast to feed.
  • Grays have baleen plates instead of teeth, with 130-180 plates or pieces along each side of the upper jaw.
  • They take great mouthfuls of food-laden water; then using their tongues, they squeeze out the water and swallow the food that sticks to the baleen.
  • The Oregon coast produces lots of phytoplankton (small marine plants) which are eaten by zooplankton (small marine animals) including bottom dwelling amphipods and mysid shrimp – primary food of the Gray Whales.
  • The only natural predators of Gray Whales are Orcas (killer whales) and large sharks. Even though some countries are still whaling, the biggest threat to the whales is pollution in the oceans.
