Although nothing is guaranteed in life, half-day whale watching trips justifiably claim an above 80% success rate when it comes to whale sightings. This means that whenever you visit Dominica, the chance of an encounter with these magnificent creatures is remarkably high, and this is an experience no-one ever forgets.
In addition to our resident sperm whales – many of whom have been given names – migratory species of whale also visit Dominica’s coastal waters at different times of the year, including killer, pilot and humpback whales.
It is also very common for whale watching trips to encounter large pods of spinner, Atlantic spotted, and bottlenose dolphins. Watch them play around the boat, leaping from the water and diving across the wake.
