We had the most amazing 3 days with Anne and her friends! She is so knowledgeable of the area and the animals and birds in it. She makes the experience so very interesting as she explains about whale facts, current research, and stories of other encounters. Who knew whales left footprints! Her enthusiasm is so infectious and her joy in sharing is wonderful. One of the best moments, for me, was hearing a whale's song from the deck of a catamaran, with my own ears! Anne dropped a hydrophone and hooked it up to a recorder, taping about 20 minutes of singing. Later she shared the recording with other boaters who had not been so lucky.
She is also very resourceful and flexible -- rearranging details when the weather threatened, one day. We are looking forward to more trips with her in future! The lunch we had aboard the catamaran was superb and the two boat captains we had were very professional. Lunch on one of the "Survivor Islands" was a nice picnic and we had time to "beachcomb."
Contadora island is beautiful as are the surrounding areas. You may see tiny flying fish, rays jumping out of the water, and many beautiful flowers and birds. You may also wish to ask her to show you the rookery with the Blue Footed Boobies, neat.
This is a trip not to be missed.
