Known as the "Whale Watching Capital of the Caribbean," Dominica has a unique underwater terrain- very close to the coast, the sea floor drops off thousands of feet deep, providing nutrients for whales to feed on which are not normally found so near to shore. These features attract whales and dolphins to the coast, and provides a 90 percent chance of spotting dolphins or whales during excursions year-round.
Whale watching in Dominica was started commercially in 1988 by Fitzroy Armour, of Anchorage Dive Center. Typically these excursions depart at 2 p.m. and return to the dock at or just before sunset. Trips may also embark during the mornings on request or prior arrangement. Generally, trips range from just south of Scotts Head to Salisbury or the southern half of the island. Other species that are seen during these excursions are Spinner dolphins, Bottlenose dolphins, Risso dolphins and Pilots whales- you might even be lucky enough to hear the occasional Humpback whale. For the best in whale watching, head to Dominica and keep your eyes peeled for the majestic creatures.
