“Successful whale watching venture with great crew”

Anchorage Hotel Whale Watching
Reviewed 12 March 2017 via mobile

We hadn't planned on doing the tour but were just checking into the hotel and informed that this tour was about to occur and that there were still spots available so we jumped on the opportunity (I guess they only do tour few times a week so we had good timing that day). We didn't sight any whales for first 1.5 hours of the tour but then we finally sighted them. The 4 man crew was great and very informative. This tour was highlight of our stay at Anchorage Hotel which otherwise sucked big time. We were fortunate we did tour first day arrival in island because the weather although not great (it was overcast) wasn't terrible (pouring rain next 3 days).

This was a whale watching trip on a catamaran that took more than 3 hours. Overall, very entertaining, educative, and safe. Our crew was skilled and persistent to the point of staying out until whales were sighted. Our tour guide and captain was on a class of his own, knowledgeable and attentive to the point of becoming one of the highlights of the trip. We saw whales on two separate occasions, learned quite a bit about them, and where also treated to some breathtaking views of the island of Dominica. While they offer refreshments, the trip takes a while, so it is a good idea to pack sunscreen, water, and some snacks.

We had such a good time diving with Anchorage. Jefferson and Sherman and the rest of the team were such good people. Quality divers. All about safety. Great rum punch to finish off the trip. I would dive with these boys anytime! Thanks guys.

We were told that February is one of the months chances of seeing whales in Dominica are greatest, but we did not expect to see quite as many as we did. And we did not have to sail far to reach the family group who, as our guides told us, often reside in this area. For about 2 hours we were able to photograph and enjoy these impressive animals, while the crew answered our questions and supplied us with juice. Then it was time to relax, enjoy the views of the island from our catamaran (rain showers on land and a perfect rainbow to add the perfect touch), while enjoying the delicious rum punch served by the crew. All in all, a perfect afternoon. Highly recommended.
