Planning to return to Dominica to swim with sperm whales. Have 3 weeks reserved with fisheries, January 28-February 18, total 4-8 people depending on boat used. cost will vary depending on boat and number of people per week. 5 days/ week to go out on a boat to look for and hopefully swim with the whales. Price will include permit fee, boat, guide, all breakfasts, all lunches, lodging and transfers. Link to my flikr photos ... 224006243/

There are allowed a max of 4 people in the water with the whales at a time, one of which must be a guide or experienced Dominica whale encounter person. What that translates to is 3 plus a guide, so if a group does not want to alternate in water time then it will have to be 3-4 people in size and very costly.

Should run aprox 3300/person/so/week or 2900/person/do/week based on 6 people on the sea ray or 3700/person/week/so or 3300/person/week do on the 60 foot motorized cat. Airfare, Boat tips and dinners extra

Dear Dr. Allinson:

My wife and I are interested in a 2012 Dominica trip to swim with sperm whales. What is the status of your plans?
