We looked for a reputable dolphin tour in the Portland area and came across The Dolphin Connection which sails out of Ingleside. Irv and Sonja have worked with the same families of dolphins for over 16 years and know them by name, so we figured they would be good tour guides.
We spent the afternoon on the Wharf Cat catamaran boat in the Gulf of Mexico doing a Whooping Crane birding tour. We left from Rockport, headed toward the Whooping Crane winter nesting area and discovered so many other species of birds as well. It was an excellent day trip and would recommend the Whooping Crane tour in Rockport to anyone.
