Lily, A Gray Whale’s Odyssey

A thousand dolphins and whales are dying in nets every day. I'm hoping that this book will be an entertaining and educational way of getting out the word and inspiring people to make a difference.

Leading his efforts to advocate the preservation of aquatic life, with emphasis on whales and dolphins, Captain Dave Anderson’s book is a captivating tale titled "Lily, A Gray Whale’s Odyssey." A timeless story inspired by true events, the book is filled with beautiful photographs that capture the intensity of the great gray whale. Captain Anderson has seen first-hand the dangers faced as a whale watching expert. In addition, he has also produced the award-winning documentary, "Wild Dolphins & Whales of Southern California."

Whale watching offers tremendous enjoyment to many people around the world, much like a worthwhile trip to some place exotic. However, despite the wonder and beauty of this activity, both whales and dolphins face hidden dangers of the deep sea due to the hazards of fishing nets. As a result, many whales still continue to die each day in spite of all efforts being taken to help bring to light the hardships and risks they face.

"A thousand dolphins and whales are dying in nets every day. I'm hoping that this book will be an entertaining and educational way of getting out the word and inspiring people to make a difference," said Capt. Anderson about the book.

"Lily, A Gray Whale’s Odyssey" is told from the perspective of Lily and chronicles the mammal's adventures and misadventures from the eyes of a seasoned aquatic naturalist, photographer and filmmaker.

In addition, Captain Anderson also runs Capt. Dave's Dolphin & Whale Safari, a premier provider of whale watching services in California. Detailed at DolphinSafari.com, the company allows passengers to experience whales up close and personal. Departing from other service providers, it offers the world's only Underwater Viewing PODS where watchers can be eye-to-eye with marine mammals under the ocean’s surface and hear the unique languages of the dolphins and whales with the research-quality hydrophone. These marine encounters are broadcast live on WhaleWatchingTV.com

The whale watching activity helps educate people about struggles that whales and dolphins have each day.
