Bazalgette the Whale

Welcome to the Atlas Obscura Community discussion of Bazalgette the Whale in Yachats, Oregon. Ask questions or share travel tips, experiences, pictures, or general comments with the community. For the story behind this place, check out the Atlas Obscura entry:

05/25/19 - We stood on the grass for a good 10 minutes but no spouting water from Bazalgette. Poor Bazalgette.

I would not put it past the community to merely perpetuate myths about the spouts just so they can watch idiot out-of-towners like us stand in the drizzling rain staring at grass. They may or may not have an over/under board in the local bar to bet on how long it will take for each unsuspecting visitor to give up. :slight_smile:
