We've tried all of the whale watching operators in Dominica over the years and the Achorage operation is definitely the one we like best. Andrew Armour, whose family own the Anchorage, has been running these trips ( and studying the whales) for over 20 years. His boats carry hydroponic listening devices to help locate the whales and on our recent trip he was as excited to meet up with a favourite sperm whale called Canopener (named for the notch in her tail fluke) as were the passengers. Canopener obliged by coming right up to the boat, cruising under us and around for the cameras before raising her huge tail fluke and diving down. On the way back in Andrew turned the boat so we could spend a few minutes with a group of spotted dolphins that came right across our bow. Andrew and his crew were very safety conscious and super helpful, especially to my elderly mother, helping her across the deck to make sure she was able to get the best views of the whales. All in all a great experience.
