Dominica's sheer underwater drop-offs create deep sheltered bays along its western coastline–the perfect haven for the Sperm Whale to breed and calve.
Dominica is the only country in the world where the Sperm Whale resides all year long, although sightings are most common between November and March. Just a short boat ride brings you into contact with the world's largest toothed animal in the calm turquoise Caribbean Sea.
Boaters and fishermen report seeing the Sperm Whale at Scotts Head, Roseau, Layou, and Point Round. Whale watching operators follow strict codes of conduct, minimizing any disturbance, and never “luring” the whales. On the rare occasion when the whales may be elusive, you’re sure to see the acrobatics of hundreds of Spotted and Spinner Dolphins.
