Cape Foulweather is a basalt outcropping 500ft above the Pacific Ocean on the central coastline of the U.S. state Oregon in Lincoln County south of Depoe Bay. The cape is notable as the first promontory on the northwest coast of New Albion (as the area was then known) to be sighted and named by Captain James Cook, while on his third voyage around the world. His March 7, 1778 journal entry reads:
The cape can be viewed from Otter Crest State Scenic Viewpoint.

  • Beautiful area! Have seen many whale sightings from the lookout. A must see in Oregon!
  • Very cool place! Can see lots of whales from the gift shop perched above the ocean. They have binoculars to borrow, free coffee, and a suprisingly decent collection of nice hoodies, t-shirts, hats, etc. Definitely worth stopping by.
