Thank you Captain Al for sharing your knowledge and love of the gray whales of Depoe Bay. As an Oregon native, I was very excited to bring friends to the homeland to experience both the eclipse and the state I love so much. Our whale-watching excursion was amazing!
Not only did I learn new things about these magnificent creatures and their migration patterns, but we were all impressed at the love and respect your team shows for your ocean neighbors. Thank you for the work you do.
I also want to thank you for being so kind to me, your terribly sea-sick passenger, who knows better and should have taken the hard stuff before getting on your boat. I could have ruined the trip for the other folks, but you got me quickly and safely back to shore and took everyone back out for what I heard was a spectacular viewing adventure (I got to see at least four flukes before the trouble started! ;-]). Note to self and others: if the patches work for you that's great (they weren't enough for me this time - I wore pressure bands as well). If you're super sensitive, Bonine or Dramamine at least an hour before is the only way to go. It's worth any sleepy after-effects. For most, the boats are very stable. I just happened to be extra susceptible to the waves that day. Even with the indignity of yacking over the side of a boat... I would totally do it again to see the whales and be so close to them (and I'll take the meds).
