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. 

The Indian Ocean is home to one of the world’s only resident pods of Sperm whales and is possibly the best place to observe them. We will encounter and swim with dolphins and turtles as well as other species.

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

Groups are small – only 4 guests on each boat to keep it very personal and to provide the best opportunity to maximise the time with the whales
