We went whale and dophin spotting today with Captain Mike and Captain Jessie, it was such a brilliant day! Both of them were so accommodating and great at their job as we managed to see three sperm whales and a pod of dolphins! One of the best days yet in this beautiful country! Thank you both!

We had gone on a whale and dolphin watching excursion when in Funchal, Madeira only one month before we went on this tour and we thought we knew what to expect. In Funchal we were on a large, quiet catamaran, there were 6 other catamarans and other boats on the lookout for dolphins and a spotter on a high lookout post on each boat. We paid one third of the price of Captain Mike’s tour and we had dolphins swimming around our catamaran for the permitted 15 minutes. A wonderful experience.

The price we were paying on Captain Mike’s tour made us think that there would be a sophisticated spotting system, using other boats in the area. How wrong we were. We got on Free Willy, which is a noisy, old, fishing boat. A 90 degree ladder lashed to the boat was the way of getting up onto the top deck. It looked just as difficult to go down to the toilet area, so didn’t try. The water was quite choppy and there was clearly no proper system of spotting, with two young helpers looking over the side when they weren’t doing other duties. We weren’t surprised that the only wildlife we saw were some flying fish. We basically spent three hours on an expensive, noisy boat trip to and from the pitons.

I wouldn’t recommend this tour. Save your money.

This was a lovely trip, I would recommend this trip all day long, thank you Howard for looking after me and pointing out all the species of dolphins as I could not get up to the upper deck, very much appreciated. This is one trip that everyone holidaying on St Lucia should book, we were so well looked after. Amazing.

Having never successfully seen whales in the past we were pleasantly surprised to catch glimpses of large pods of Pilot Whales and Dolphins, along with some flying fish. The crew was fun and friendly and the rum punch was great. Definitely recommend.

Captain Mike's was an amazing tour! There were about 10 individuals on the boat with us, as well as three crew members. The boat was nice, though the crew was even better! They were attentive to our needs and incredibly informative. We saw frazer and bottlenose dolphins as well as a stunning view of the Pitons! I would highly recommend this tour!

My wife and I were on board as first clients and they told us that we have to wait for 4 more people. After 10 minutes a man came to the captain and said: "Could you believe? Everybody cancelled...". We were afraid that our trip won't take place as well due to not enough clients, but then the captain just started the engine. We were very grateful that they made the whale watching happen for only our couple despite the fact that they have lost their money for sure.
The staff was very friendly and they looked for sea mammals until last moments of the trip. And fortunately we saw a group of dolphins just before returning to the port.

We were docking at St Lucia on a cruise and did the Dolphin and Whale watching on Free Willy as a group of 8. The trip didn't have the best start, it was rough sea and it rained heavily, to the point you couldn't see much. The staff were very attentive bringing us soft drinks or rum punch. We were starting to wonder if we would ever see anything. Suddenly the rain the stopped, and we saw two splashes. The captain turned towards the splashes, and suddenly loads of Dolphins were jumping all around us. About twenty minutes later we then saw pilot whales, which hadn't been spotted for two months according to the guides. Among the group of pilot whales was a mother and a calf. The dolphins made reappearances as well as the pilot whales. A fantastic tour, it didn't have the best start but it turned amazing! Definately would recommend.

I certainly enjoyed this boat trip, but it was disappointing that we didn't see any whales or dolphins. The seas were quite rough the day I went out, so several passengers were seasick. It's best to have some seasick meds with you just in case. I did see some schools of flying fish and some sea birds diving for fish. There are lots of good views of the Pitons for photos.

We've done a couple whale tours before and realized that there is a chance we may not have any sightings or limited. Not long after we got out, we were seeing sperm whales, pilot whales, Dolphins. And lots of them. They were able to get close for great pictures. Mario and Lance were great and have an excellent knowledge of the sightings. They provided drinks and they was ample shade if needed.
