Swim with Sperm whales in the Caribbean

This pioneering safari takes you all the way to the island of Dominica, where the crystal waters are home to some of the most chilled out marine animals, the sperm whales. Guided by BBC photographer, Patrick Dystra, you head out each day to look for the whales, and other marine life. You'll enter the water with them and swim alongside them, and your photographer will capture your prize moments on camera, so you have lasting memories of this incredible opportunity.

Sperm whales can be up to 20 metres in length, but pose no threat to humans. Swimming with them is an adrenaline-fuelled adventure.
