Dominican Andrew Armour, has been called the “Whale Whisperer” because of his ability to communicate with sperm whales.

“Once I’m in the water I try to reach them acoustically by making this noise in the water, and it’s the same noise all the time so they know it’s me,” he says. “So I’m talking to them all the time in the water, and they start coming.” Andrew Armour; Dominica’s Whale Whisperer

Just an amazing story. No wonder Dominica is referred as the Whale Watching capital of the Caribbean, and is one of the best Whale Watching Destinations in the world.

Thanks Dominica for being whale friendly. Because whales are truly amazing creatures.

FYI – Not only is the Dominica whale-friendly, they also are ocean friendly having established two Marine Reserves and are currently working on creating a third.
