Experience Dominica – The Nature Island: Dominica Vacations | Exotic Vacations | Honeymoon Destination

Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.


Just got an email from fellow blogger Dan Tanner, he gave me the head-ups that Dominica made the “10 Great Place to Catch A Whale Of A Sighting” in USA-Today travel destination segment.

“The deep waters off the west coast of this Caribbean island attract the blunt-headed sperm whales year-round. “Winter, though, is the best time to see these sperm whales, along with humpback whales that come to Dominica’s bays to breed and reward visitors with acrobatic displays,” Day says.

The readers of USA-Today will be disappointed 🙁 to know that Dominica is A Pro-Whaling Nation and has chosen to support Japan in commercial whaling around the world. Unlike our government leaders, US Today knows a great thing when they see it.

Tell Japan We’ll Keep The Ban

Whaling has been banned in Japan for 20 years, however the governments of Antigua & Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, St Kitts & Nevis, St Lucia and St Vincent & Grenadines have voted with Japan to overturn the ban.

When Ruth and I went out, we sat a long time in the boat waiting for the sperm whales to surface. To pass time, I took out my harmonica and began to play, and whales surfaced near our boat almost immediately. They swam around and then dove. We waited a while longer, and then someone suggested that I play some more, and when I did the whales reappeared almost immediately. Perhaps the whales sensed the sound and were curious.
