A miraculous and rugged, basalt-rimmed bay, Boiler Bay is a great place to watch wild surf action on the rocky spurs. This splendid panoramic viewpoint presents a good opportunity to see gray whales year round. Take your binoculars -- this is one of the best sites in Oregon to see ocean-going birds (like shearwaters, jaegers, albatrosses, grebes, pelicans, loons, oystercatchers and murrelets). In 1910, an explosion sank the J. Marhoffer, and you can see the ship's boiler at low-tide.
Property acquired between 1926 and 1974 by purchase from various owners. Boiler Bay is named for the remains of a ship's boiler visible at low tide. They are the remnants of the freighter J. Marhoffer, which was wrecked off this point in 1910.
