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 http://www.flickr.com/photos/42988059@N ... 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?
