Recent whale watching experience? Is it worth it?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any recent experience or suggestions on a whale watching tour? The other thread is pretty old so not sure if things have changed.

 

I realize Dominica isn't the same as Alaska but do you think it's a waste of time and money? 

 

I'm a bit concerned with booking through the cruise as many times you feel more like livestock. Maybe I'm wrong??

 

I'd appreciate your experience or opinions!

We did the whale watching ship's tour in Dec. 2018.  We did see lots of dolphins and 2 whales.  The boat's crew spent a lot of time trying to find whales, but we finally did.  It was crowded, but they stopped the boat when we found the whales and made sure we all got time and space to see the whales  

 

We had a weird experience in the beginning of the tour.  There was a dead body floating in the water, and we had to stop to report it to their authorities.  Toward the end of the excursion we found out the  body was that of a person who had epilepsy, and the locals had been searching for him for over a wee k.  As upsetting as the experience was, at least our trip helped that person's family know what happened to him...
