Enjoy a chance to see these breathtaking and remarkable creatures in their natural habitat.

Your adventure begins three to eight miles from the shore. Keep your eyes peeled and scan the surface. Every so often, the boat will stop and a hydrophone will be placed beneath the surface to detect any movement of animals below. If they are present, you’ll hear the rhythmic clicking of the sperm whales… always guaranteed to give you goosebumps! And bear in mind that the minimum distance for approaching these magnificent animals is 160 feet, so keep your camera at the ready while your captain manoeuvres into the best viewing position.

The deep waters surrounding Dominica are a natural breeding ground for the sperm whale, as well as several species of dolphins. The ones you are most likely to encounter are sperm, pilot and false killer whales, as well as spotted, spinner and pantropical dolphins.
