Carol grew up in a sailing family, so being on the water is a natural fit. Seven years ago, she decided she wanted to study marine biology so she packed up her things and moved to Canada from Italy. After earning her biology degree from the University of Victoria, she knew that not only did she want to be on boat and be with whales, she wanted to teach. How to combine them all? Whale watching of course! When Carol is not on a boat, she’s usually enjoying the outdoors, hiking, or at the beach…and, of course, looking for whales!
