“11 whales and hundreds of dolphins ”

Anchorage Hotel Whale Watching
Reviewed 13 July 2017 via mobile

Oh my goodness we must've hit it just at the right time! We saw 11 sperm whales at once and many more even after that and hundreds of dolphin all around the boat! The staff and the captain are very accommodating and educational fun. Delicious refreshments and rum punch! A must do in Dominica!

Was able to see both dolphins and whales on the trip. The whales flipped there tails upwards as they descended. The dolphins swam and darted in and out from underneath the boat and out of front. We went out on the large catamaran and felt completely safe the entire journey. Honestly , would have enjoyed the trip out to sea even if we had not see whales or dolphins.

We loved our boat ride on the Passion. We did not see any fish or ocean mammals. But our family had a great time anyway.

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.
