Come face to face with the gentle giants of the deep during this truly humbling adventure. Journey to Dominica, the ‘Nature Island’ and ecological jewel of the Caribbean. Here, lush forested mountains drop into tranquil blue waters, which shelter one of the richest marine ecosystems on the planet. Sperm Whales take refuge here year-round, and thanks to specially arranged permits, you’ll have the incredibly rare opportunity to enter their world and dive with sperm whales on your vacation. 

Over the course of six days your skipper and guide will analyse the weather and movements of the sperm whales to get you in the right place at the right time to see these magnificent creatures and if the conditions allow it, swim with them too. Despite being capable of diving to depths of 1,000 metres, they can often be seen at the water’s surface. This and their calm demeanour makes it easy to swim alongside these gentle giants. 

The steep underwater drop-offs along Dominica’s west coast create sheltered bays that are an ideal habitat for the whales, where they can feed, breed and raise their young in safety. Combine your time photographing these whales, swimming and diving with sperm whales and observing them from the boat but don’t forget to take a moment just comprehending the incredible experience you are witnessing.

With any luck, you’ll also be treated to the antics of pods of dolphins swimming alongside the boat, as Spinner Dolphin, Spotted Dolphin, Fraser Dolphin and Bottlenose Dolphin are all regular residents of the local waters. 

And if your thirst for adventure isn’t quite quenched, we’d love to show you around the remarkable Nature Island above the surface to cap off your vacation.
