The time we spent onboard the Dolphin IX did not disappoint. We took the 4:30 tour. Since it was a windy day, our trip was a bit rough. Everyone was offered complimentary Dramamine as they boarded. We declined but instead took Bonine and no one got sick or sleepy. Since the waters were rough, we all got wet, be prepared.
Each tour has a naturalist on board to narrate during the trip. We were guided by Dr. Carole Carlson. She was extremely knowledgable about the whales that we saw as she has been following many of them for several years..
We saw 2 types of whales on our trip; Fin whales and Humpback.whales. While the Fin whales tend to surface and then dive deeply, the Humpbacks were more inclided to breech all or part of their bodies. We were able to get some great "face" and tail shots. What a thrilling experience!!!
This was definately well worth the money spent to take the tour.
