      About this trip

      Join Dive Ninja for a once in a lifetime experience to swim with sperm whales in the warm crystal blue Caribbean waters of Dominica! We will be hosting 2 trips: February 17-24, 2024, and February 24- March 2, 2024. 

      The beautiful island nation of Dominica is home to a big population of resident sperm whales and through special permits given to us by the government we will be allowed to get in the water with these incredible gigantic creatures. Swimming with sperm whales is unlike anything on earth. These highly intelligent and social creatures are remarkable and at times even seem to seek out interactions with humans. Throughout the week pro photographer & whale conservationist, Jay Clue, will be not only taking you to encounter these remarkable giants, but also teaching you about them and how important they are for our not only our oceans, but for our planet as a whole.  He will also be offering his PADI Whale Defender - whale conservation course free of charge.

      Dive Ninja Expeditions was founded with a passion for exploration, adventure, conservation, and above all, diving. Dive Ninjas leads conservation minded diving tours, activities, & whale watching in Cabo San Lucas, specialized expeditions around Baja, as well as dive trips all around the world for divers & ocean lovers who want to experience something memorable and help protect our planet’s oceans at the same time.


      This is a trip I will remember for the rest of my life. I was continuously impressed with the ship, crew, amenities, and safety while on board the Nautilus Undersea, and Dive Ninjas is absolutely my favorite dive shop. The diving itself was nothing short of amazing, the mantas, dolphins, sharks were all so beautiful and awe inspiring. Socorro is a magical place, and Dive Ninjas and Nautilus Live Aboard really elevated that magic to another level. I will be booking this trip again in the future.

      I had an amazing time diving in the Revillagigedo Archipelago. It felt like I was entering another world! Swimming alongside majestic oceanic mantas, playful bottlenose dolphins, graceful reef sharks, and many other precious creatures was truly magical. Thanks for the unforgetable journey!

      Trip was well organized before and onboard. Staff and crew were amazing and took care of so many important things. Food was delicious and plenty of it. The dive guides are great and knowledgeable of the area. Fantastic trip

      Just returned from the Best of Visayas trip to the Philippines and it was amazing! The coordination before and during the trip helped everything go smoothly. The materials before the trip really helped me plan my gear and personal items well. The local team who facilitated the trip was excellent and welcoming. They were able to accommodate my food allergies and the boat had a lot of room for everyone to come together but also have our alone time. Five-star trip for sure!
