Whale & Dolphin Watching Safaris
Dominica is blessed with an abundance of both resident and visiting cetaceans – pods of Spinner and Spotted Dolphins, Pilot Whales, Sperm Whales, False Orcas and at least a dozen other species.
Dominica is “one of the few places where you can see sperm whales close to shore. It is spectacular”.
Whales and Dolphins are sighted so frequently in these waters that Dominica is widely considered to be one of the best areas in the Caribbean for encounters with these fascinating creatures.
We are the only company that have directional hydrophones to locate and listen to these animals.
Join us on our whale-watching excursions. Watch as they break the surface of the water. Listen to the rhythmic sounds of their clicking communication as you relax on our fast, hydrophone-equipped catamarans.
