About Dominica's Turtles
Whale & Dolphin DEEP SEA EXPEDITION
Our territorial waters are
home to sperm whales, dwarf and pigmy sperm whales and
seven species of dolphin, including the short fin pilot
whale, pan tropical spotted dolphins and the rare
Fraser's dolphin. Brydes and Humpback whales are two
migratory species that call Dominica home from November

"DEEP SEA EXPEDITION" begins with an on-shore briefing.
On this specialized patented 3 ˝ hour tour we head out
by boat in search of "adventurous" encounters with life
at sea. Weather permiting, we venture into the mighty
Atlantic Ocean or stay on the calmer Caribbean Sea .
Although we generally stay within 3 miles off-shore, we
sometimes view the island from a “little” farther out
and point out geographical features and mountain peaks.
We may take a hydrophone to listen for any sounds that
are not "man-made."
Visitors may also get a chance to hear the clicking and
whistling sounds made by whales and dolphins (if we do
encounter them). We explain why we keep some distance,
why we approach them from certain directions and why we
sometimes shut off boat engines.
