Many thanks, Mucha Man; the trip was outstanding! We encountered a very large pod of spinner dolphins, who breached for us, and surfed at the bow of the boat. :bravo:
If anyone is interested in going on this trip, it cost NT$899 and lasted two hours (they will stay longer but we found dolphins very quickly). Call Mr Lee on 0972 243 758. Meet in the Visitor Information Centre at TouCheng Harbour. Parking spaces are abundant. This trip left at 9.00 a.m., but I understand there are other times available depending on which day you go. Mr Lee speaks a little English, but you may need someone to translate just in case.
I thought it was a fantastic way to spend a morning. The drive took 50 minutes from ShiLin, going via Highway No. 1 to the No. 3, and then the Number 5 to Toucheng. I drove back via a swim at FuhLong Beach (31 kilometers up the coast) and late lunch at the lovely Monet Cafe in PingLin. All that and still back in time for tea!
