Check This Off Your Ultimate Bucket List: Swimming with Whales in Dominica

Dive into the adventure of a lifetime at Fort Young Hotel & Dive Resort, where we bring you face-to-face with one of the ocean’s most magnificent creatures. Located along the picturesque coastline of the Caribbean Sea, our resort is your gateway to an unforgettable experience — swimming with whales in the whale-watching capital of the Caribbean, Dominica.

Dominica is the only country in the world where sperm whales can be sighted year-round. Interestingly, juvenile and female sperm whales stay close to the island’s coastlines throughout the year while mature males migrate from polar regions to mate between November and March, making each encounter a unique and awe-inspiring experience.

Imagine coming eye-to-eye with the largest predator on earth, the sperm whale (Physeter macrocephalus), reaching lengths of up to 70 feet (21 meters) and weighing a staggering 60 tons. This is the kind of adventure that dreams are made of.

At Fort Young Hotel & Dive Resort, we offer the ultimate bucket list experience — a combination of swimming with the whales, morning dives, and afternoon land excursions. Responsibly-designed for small groups of 8 persons, accompanied by an expert boat captain and specialized guide, Fort Young’s Swimming with the Whales package is the perfect getaway for adventure and nature enthusiasts alike seeking a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness these majestic creatures in their natural habitat.

Only limited dates remain — don’t miss your chance to check this off your bucket list. Contact us today to learn more about our exclusive Swimming with the Whales package and embark on a life-altering journey in Dominica.
