The waters surrounding Dominica are ideal for whale watching, so much so that the island has been dubbed the whale watching capital of the Caribbean. During this half-day excursion, you’ll set sail on a catamaran and travel up to eight miles off shore to give you the best chance of catching a glimpse of these extraordinary creatures. Over 22 different types of whale can be seen in these parts, including sperm, pilot, false killer, spotted and spinner. Pods of bottle nose dolphins make regular appearances, too. Your guide will tell you all about the different whale and dolphin species along the way. What’s more, every 20 minutes the boat will stop to use an underwater hydrophone to listen for animal noises, like the click of sperm whales, the whistling of dolphins and the singing of humpback whales. As you sail back to the port, a complimentary juice or rum punch will be served.
