Dominica Whale & Dolphin Watching Excursion Reviews
Went on a rib boat whale tour. It was that or the beach break for us. While we saw no marine life, the operator did stop at the beach break location for us to use the rest room (for $1.00) and see the black sand. The island is very poor. We did enjoy seeing It by boat.
This was our LEAST favorite port.
Whale/Dolphin watching: We saw absolutely NOTHING the entire boat ride. While the crew was very nice and tried many locations in order to get us to see something, we saw nothing and it was more than a little disappointing. That's the risk you take when trying to see wild animals in their natural habitat. There are no guarantees! I wish we had chosen a different excursion, in hindsight.
We were there on a Sunday and almost everything was closed. No shops, maybe 1 or 2 restaurants (we ate at CocoRico cafe - it was lovely), and a small open air market that sold touristy trinkets. We were back on the ship with hours to spare.
Hassled a bit when arriving at the port but ok once on the excursion, nice clean boat, friendly and knowledgable staff, saw lots of whales but no dolphins, and a large turtle basking in the sun, drinks included. But when we left the port a pod of dolphins swam with us.
