Captain Carrie Newell

Founder and Professor of Marine Biology.

Carrie earned her master's degree in biological science/aquatic zoology from Northern Arizona University and earned her Ph.D. in biological oceanography at Oregon State University. She has been sharing her knowledge of marine mammals for more than two decades as a college professor in both Arizona and Oregon. Other teaching experience includes her positions as a state park naturalist, an Elderhostel instructor and an environmental education teacher at elementary and junior high schools in Verde Valley, Arizona.

In addition to a plethora of research experience, including her work with the Center for Whale Research, where she learned about and helped to document orcas, Carrie began her own whale-watching business. She derives much pleasure from taking people out on the waters off the central Oregon coast and teaching them about the ocean's many inhabitants, particularly about the resident gray whales and their food sources. In 2005, Carrie published A Guide to Resident Gray Whales Along the Oregon Coast, a book that identifies and details the behavior, personalities and food sources of Oregon's gray whales.
