Whale & dolphin watching had always been on my list of to-do things. I went on whale/dolphin tour with a few friends in Auckland previously but was unsuccessful so I decided to try again in Hualien. After seeing beautiful pictures from other blogs (see end of posts), I was even more excited.
We took the package from Whale World (鲸世界) at NTD 700 per person. You can check for rates with the hotel or guest house you are staying with. Usually they have packages with the companies so you can get a better rate.
Sadly, I just don’t seem to have the dolphin and whale luck ! I just managed to take some photos of whale/dolphin statues, the sea and Port of Hualien 🙁 Gary told me no more dolphin/whale trips in the future 🙁 But I think when I have a chance, I will still secretly plan for one and give him a surprise. Afterall, I still have the “lifetime ticket” from this trip and Auckland trip…. If you are going for the tour, remember to bring your sea-motion sickness drugs along because the sea is quite rough out there.
