SPERM WHALES - DOMINICA
NOVEMBER 24 - DECEMBER 1 (FULLY BOOKED)
There are only two or three places in the world where you can swim with these amazing whales. Dominica in the Caribbean is one of the best, and to keep it that way the government has a strict permitting process.
I have been granted a 6 day permit to take guests to swim with the largest carnivore on the planet.
No SCUBA certification needed.
I will be taking a guided group to Dominica in 2017 to spend 6 days swimming with these amazing animals. Under the permit these are very small groups up to 6 maximum.
I've charted a boat just for us, and we'll get 8 hours a day to find and swim with these gentle giants. Given the population in Dominica is year round, we predict a high likelihood of frequent encounters. Those times when we're not seeing them, there are plenty of other mammals to keep us occupied, here's just a few that are commonly seen, Remember though, nothing is guaranteed, and they are wild animals, its up to them if they are around.
- False killer whales
- Spinner, bottlenose, and spotted Dolphins
- Pilot whales
Our guide will be seasoned professional and member of the Dominica Sperm Whale Project research team Purnell. He lives there year round and collects ID and acoustic data on the sperms whales. His in-depth knowledge and access to cutting edge research on this population of Sperm Whales will be an invaluable resource on contribution to your expedition.
