Trip Details

Imagine yourself in a calm, clear ocean, drifting calmly. Suddenly, loud clicking, strong enough to vibrate your body enter your awareness. You look around and here they are – a pod of Sperm whales – slowly swimming towards you, scanning you using their sonar. 

Dominica is home to one of the world’s only resident pods of Sperm whales and is possibly the best place to swim with them and witness the famous “sleeping Giants”. 

We have created an activity rich program which includes daily swims, afternoon workshops, land exploration and great food. 

Groups are small – only 5 guests on each trip to keep it very personal and to provide the best opportunity to maximise the time in the water..

Swimming with Sperm whales in Dominica requires a special government t permit which we have acquired for you. Each of the guests will be granted a permit which will enable you to swim and post photos and videos you take on the trip.
