This adventure is mind-blowing and a truly photographic opportunity that has not to be missed. It means interacts, snorkel and swim with cooperative and gentle sperm whales.
In January and February, when the western side of the island of Dominica is protected from the Atlantic Ocean storms and the sea conditions are good, it is rather easy to spot the massive head of sperm whales, resting on the surface or patrolling around the main group to guard. The pods of sperm whales of Dominica island are basically matriarchal units. These units frequently join with other to socialize, as if they are “family reunion”. During these encounters, whales raft together at the surface, floating quite still, rolling over each other’s backs. It appears to be a time of relax and play. When snorkelers enter the water during these events, the whales are unconcerned by their presence and are more tolerant of the approaches of snorkelers.
 
Isla Mujeres, once a traditional Mexican fishing community, is a  perfect place to base our expedition to observe some of the most exciting animal displays and their feeding behaviours. 
Frigatebirds hang like arrows  above the ocean, dipping down to grab some food. Below the surface, a school of hundreds sardines moves as one. Our expert sportfishing guide knows the game : we'll look for the feeding frigates, sure that we'll find sailfish hunting the sardines. 
When a dozen or so sailfish find a school of Brazilian sardines, they work together as a team : they herd the sardines into a bait ball which heads towards the surface. Frigatebirds see this mass from the sky and create a funnel-cloud formation, which we will use for spotting.
At the end of this amazing trip, we will move to one of the bigger colonies of flamingos in Mexico, to practice nature bird photography at it best : coach Franco, of course.
