Freedive with the world's largest predator


Sperm whales are the largest predator on earth, reaching up to 70 feet/21 meters long, and weighing 60 tons. They are bright as well, and have the largest brain in the animal kingdom. Perhaps most notable – and incredible to witness – is their ability to take a deep dive.

When breaching, they can dive more than 6,000 feet/2,000 m deep to hunt in the dark with echolocation for their favorite and abundant food source – large and giant squid. What is equally amazing is that they can stay down there for close to an hour!


We have chosen the two best locations for our Sperm whales expeditions: 

Dominica – Caribbean Sea. Direct 3 hour flight from Miami will get you into this pristine island. Amazing freediving, top hotel and incredible interactions. 

Mauritius – Indian Ocean. Accessible via Dubai and other airports. This place has amazing nature, basic but clean accommodation, surfing, freediving and some of the friendliest Sperm whales. 

Visit the individual trip pages for more information. 

I was about to say that I just got back from the best holiday of my life but that would offend the whales in Tonga. I can’t decide. My heart is broken – again, leaving those beautiful ocean creatures behind.
Travelling? Freediving? Only with Apnea Australia, of course! Thank you Erez for the most amazing photos. See you next year in Hawaii…
