Saut de baleine

Your passionate, bilingual eco whale guide will welcome you and inform you about the different species that you will meet in an educational, fun, and cultural way for the whole trip. In principle, you can see up to 17 different cetacean species in Guadeloupe (humpback whale, sperm whale, pantropical spotted dolphin, Fraser’s dolphin, rough-toothed dolphin, Gervais’ beaked whale, Cuvier’s beaked whale, killer whales, false killer whales, pygmy killer whale, pilot whales, melon-head whales), however, we mainly see sperm whales and spotted dolphins all year round. From December to May, the attractions that everyone in Guadeloupe enjoys are the humpback whales that come to mate in our crystalline waters and grow with their children, offering children and adults alike an absolutely breathtaking spectacle.


The trip goes as follows: we start with finding the cetaceans with a hydrophone and binoculars, then you will get explanations from the eco whale guide. Obviously, you must respect the whale ecotourism charter implemented by AGOA (Committee for the management of the marine animal sanctuary in Guadeloupe). Different educational tools are provided, such as a hydrophone for the acoustic tracking of the cetaceans,, headphones to hear the sounds emitted by the cetaceans on board the boat, and leaflets with illustrations of the cetaceans, and educational boards on the different species of our region. You will also be able to listen to the whale sounds with a sound system. For your comfort, drinks will be offered to you, and children will get snacks (water, juice, and planteur served on board). Our success rate on our watching days is 95%. If you don’t see anything, we will offer you another trip on a different date, or we will refund half of the service price..
