I did this tour solo and walked there from our cruise ship (5 minute walk). It was a little confusing that your meeting location was at the ferry terminal amongst all the people catching the ferry, but I figured it out. Great boat ride with lots of scenery to observe while you are waiting for the whales to surface. We saw four whales, including a mom and her calf. Small group on our boat, 8 passengers total. They provided us with water and rum punch for the ride back. Be aware, there are no bathroom facilities at the ferry terminal or on the boat.
I was impressed that they stayed to watch over a group of snorkelers who were left behind by their own boat in pursuit of another whale. They stayed by the people in the water until their boat (from a different company) returned.

We didn’t have much planned for our trip to Dominica and reached out last minute to try to get a whale watching tour. We submitted an inquiry through the website online form and Harry got back to us right away to accommodate our request to go out for a whale watching tour. Selwyn and Britney picked us up from the Roseau port in the afternoon and took us out for a few hours in search of sperm whales. They quickly found four whales that were with some divers. They didn’t just stop there, and instead continued to other areas. We ultimately saw about 10 whales, including one that jumped out of the water! It was amazing and a very memorable experience.

We had such a great time that when we had flight issues that kept us in Dominica for a couple extra days, we reached out to Harry again to ask about snorkeling at Champagne Beach. We messaged him on WhatsApp around 10 pm and he got back to us very quickly to set up a tour with Selwyn for 2 pm the next day. We later found out that they had other administrative plans that day, but they had wanted to accommodate us so much, they moved their plans around to be able to give my husband and I a personal snorkeling tour. Selwyn took us out and showed us so many beautiful fish and the champagne bubbles! He also was very helpful and patient with us (my husband’s facial hair was creating issues with his mask). Harry and Pam were on the beach watching our luggage for us.

All of the group was so helpful and hospitable. Finding them really made our trip so much better and we can’t recommend them enough!

This is nature, so we knew there were no guarantees of seeing anything. After 3 hours plus of my wife feeling seasick, and my back killing me (it's a very bumpy ride at high-speed) we saw precisely nothing!

Captain Kevin, and Pam both seemed genuinely disappointed that they weren't able to find the whales for us.

They offered us another trip, should the circumstances conspire to provide us with the opportunity when the chances of seeing them were higher. We thought about it, did we really want to go through it again?

We decided to risk it, and gratefully accepted Pam's kind offer.

The circumstances changed, and we did get the promised call. Pam and Harry were as good as their word, which is a quality I greatly admire.

We made our way down to the ferry terminal in Roseau, and set-off on Whale watching trip Mkll

The hydrophone was working well, the Sperm whales clicks were detected and relayed to us via a speaker. There was hope.

The clicks were coming from all directions, we headed north.

Another 2 hours at sea and still we had seen nothing. At least we heard them this time.

And then it happened, a very excited Captain shouted "There she blows! "

Kevin had seen a whale use its blowhole, some way off in the distance.

It was then a case of "hold tight, full speed ahead"

Sperm whales typically spend 45-50 minutes under water, then 10 minutes at the surface preparing for their next dive.

We got there in time, saw our first whale, and Kevin even knew when she was going to deep dive and show us her tail fluke. We saw it 😊

Another boat got closer and Captain Kevin called on the radio "why are you so close?" He even asked the other captain to back off!

Captain Kevin really respects these animals, and always observes from a safe distance, totally respecting their space.

We went on to see half a dozen or so female Sperm whales, including one of the named ones who stay in the area all year round, she was called Can Opener. We also saw a mother with her calf, who dived one quickly after the other and we saw both tail flukes at once. Awesome!

Furthermore, we saw a pod of who knows how many Fraser's Dolphins, 30 or so perhaps? They played in the bow waves, with two coming back the other way and completely jumping out of the water about 3 or 4 metres from us. Spectacular!

It was a day that will live long in my memory and I cannot thank Kevin, Pam and Harry enough for their efforts.

We have watched whales all over the world and this was truly an exceptional experience. Captain Selwyn and guide Britney were superb, leading us through a large pod of dolphins, then to a group of four sperm whale cows. Three sat on the surface and entertained us with tail revealing dives to the bottom. Another wowed is with several breaches, including a full spinning one. To top it off, we were treated to a delicious rum punch in the way back to port. Harry, the owner, was incredibly helpful in setting things up. WOOT!

We did whale watching tours all over the world (Sri Lanka, Iceland, Soutth Africa) but this was really something special.
We were only the 4 of us in one boat (out of max. 8 persons anyway).
We saw 4 whales lined up like giant submarines not far from our boat. They were at a short ride from the shore.
The captain is very skilled in handling the boat near the whales without disturbing them at all! The spotter did her job well.
All in one it was the best whale watch experience we had so far. I highly recommend it to anyone who respects nature and wants to have a good time!

Selwyn (Selly) is the boat captain and was a pro! As advertised, this is a small boat (holds 8), low to the water. He was able to navigate us so close to the whales. This time of year the males are out in the Atlantic but females stay in the Caribbean. We were lucky enough to see 6-7 not too far from shore. They meet you at the ferry terminal which is super easy to get to in Roseau. Selwyn was well regarded by our local guides.

I booked this not realising it would be a heavenly small boat tour all to ourselves. The seas were alive with bottlenose dolphins and the skipper went out of his way to find us two female sperm whales, fulfilling a lifelong ambition for my husband. Highly recommended, it felt safe and good distances were observed between the boat and the whales.

Britney and Selwyn took me and a friend I met while at Jungle Bay out to see whales on a boat in early January of 2022. They were professional, fun and kind during the hours of time spent while they used instruments to sonically search for whales (the boats also contact each other to assist in the search).
We were under a time crunch because I had a bird watching tour unfortunately planned that day — which was of no fault of theirs, but they really worked hard to find whales (adult and baby) for us. We even saw a whale dive, revealing a large fin. So now I have beautiful photos (I tried to add one but it said the file was too large) and videos of these great animals that swim Dominica’s shores all year!

We were in Dominica for 10 days, and absolutely wanted to see the sperm whales that reside in the waters nearby. We were so lucky to be set up with this organization, and specifically with our captain, Selo (Selwyn), and first mate Brittany. She welcomed us right away and made sure we were comfortable while waiting for the other passengers.

The boat was not very large, so if you are VERY prone to motion sicknesss, this might not be the adventure for you, but it was not an issue for me, and my spouse is somewhat motion sensitive. The other comfort tips I would give- there is not much shade on the boat, so you will want a hat, preferably one that can give you a decent amount of shade. That said, you also may get wet, so consider that when choosing your clothes (and your hat, of course).

On our particular trip, we saw approximate 5 whiles, including a mother and calf together. Really amazing. The guides are careful not to get too close, and of course they cut the motors off well before getting very close, so as not to distress the animals more our presence already has caused, and certainly to avoid injuring them. We had such a good time with them, and it was a memory neither of us will ever forget!
