My week with the Sperm whales in Dominica far exceeded my expectations. Getting to experience being in the water with them many, many times was truly magical. Their presence is so peaceful. Captain Curt and Craig did such a fabulous time giving us the best experiences and also respecting the whales and how much we interacted with them which I so appreciated. I can not recommend this trip enough. I look forward to. going back for another time with them. Thank you!

Swimming with sperm whales was a life-altering experience. Their immense size and grace were breathtaking, and they tolerated us with a gentle good humor. The highlights were swimming for several hours alongside of group of at least eleven whales (including a large male) as they interacted intensely with one another, and serving as babysitters for a baby whale whose mom left the baby at the surface as she dove to feed. What an incredible 10 days! I am deeply appreciative to Nadia for teaching me so much about underwater photography and whale behavior, and for her persistance in getting the best out of our hotel accommodations. Nadia, your good humor and endless energy are priceless! I'm also grateful to Captain Kurt for consistently placing us in ideal positions for photographing and interacting with the whales, and for always putting the safety of the whales first, ensuring that we never stressed them or significantly altered their behavior. And heartfelt thanks to Greg for ensuring our safety, and for lugging my huge camera housing out of the water about a million times. This was an absolutely extraordinary trip! Thank you all!!

The whale guide, staff at the accommodation and our on-site tour guide were all amazing people. They worked hard to ensure our stay and experience was enjoyable. If you are vegan/vegetarians food is limited and bland. You receive the same breakfast everyday. Lunch was different everyday but very bland. The main dishes served at restaurants are seafood. It would have been nice if we could cook at the accommodation so that we could enjoy some healthy vegetarian dishes.
