My wife and I went whale watching two years ago in the middle of March and saw a bunch of whales -- all about 2 - 3 miles off the coast. Some whales were right next to the excusion boat!

We've been thinking about this tour, too. Has anyone been in November? Did you see anything

Thanks,

Hello Fern, while I cannot tell you that you will see whales in November, the season does run from the end of November to March. So that may mean, if you are going there in early November your chances of seeing one is slim.

Here is a site where you can get more info about the whaling season in Dominica

Happy cruising

Thanks syl2,

Think we'll probably try it! Even if we don't see whales it appears that there are other things to see.

We'll be there Thanksgiving week, so maybe they'll come in early!
