What you will visit:
Zodiac Whale Watching Cruise
Heralded as the "Whale Watching Capital of the Caribbean," the waters off the Dominican coastline teem with marine life. This Animal Planet recommended tour offers a high-powered Zodiac experience. Dominica has become a preferred destination in the Caribbean for the sighting of whales, and it is the only country in the world that has a year-round population of sperm whales. The high success rate for sightings is due to the fact that the sheltered bays along the coastline offer perfect conditions for the whales to breed and calve. To aid in your search, your crew will periodically lower a hydrophone into the water to listen for the rhythmic clicking and whistling of whale communication. When they are spotted, the agile nature of the vessel allows the captain to get up close and personal for a unique encounter. Although we cannot put a guarantee on Mother Nature, whale-watching excursions in Dominica have a high success rate.

What you will see along the way:
See why Erich Hoity, consultant to the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society, calls Dominica "the most reliable spot for whale watchers to see sperm whales." While you are cruising the waters looking for marine life, you will also take in the sparkling shoreline and waterfront landmarks of Dominica.
