Sperm Whales in Paradise

Spend a week in the idyllic tropical paradise of Dominica…while seeking close encounters with the largest toothed carnivore on Earth, the sperm whale.   Sperm whales pose no danger to humans, and are in fact the easiest whales to approach. At over 20 meters in length, these gentle giants congregate in large numbers in the warm Dominican waters each winter.

We have been issued one of the very few permits that allows us to approach, and enter the water with, the sperm whales. If fact, we will be the only boat allowed to enter the water with sperm whales while we are there…and it is the peak time of year to for sperm whale and weather. We will also seek to find orca, dolphins, beaked whales and any other creatures that the ocean should share with us.

Legendary Beauty 

Sperm whales were hunted mercilessly during the whaling era, but their population has made an amazing recovery in the years since the IWC stopped commercial whaling.  Herman Melville’s Moby Dick and the movie In the Heart of the Sea are stories inspired by the legendary sperm whale.  We will have a chance to enter their environment and experience their grace and beauty.
