Dive Dominica Whale Watching Known as the whale-watching capital of the Caribbean, Dominica is home to 14 species of marine mammals, the star of which is the sperm whale. Gentle giants despite being the world’s largest toothed animals that still exist, sperm whales have a unique protein in their blood that stores extra oxygen, allowing them to hold their breath for up to 90 minutes and dive to depths of 3,000 feet. Dominica remains the planet’s most reliable place to spot them, with outfitters reporting sightings 80 percent of the time. Book one of Dive Dominica’s whale-watching trips, which take place every Sunday at 2 p.m., and keep your eyes peeled while enjoying complimentary fruit juices and rum punch.
