DOLPHINS AND WHALES IN GUADELOUPE

As well as many other cetaceans, such as sperm whales, below.

The Shelltone Whale Project has developed a cetacean approach protocol, which is applied on every trip to the whales, dolphins and sperm whales of Guadeloupe within the Agoa marine sanctuary.
Our observation protocol is governed by simple principles:

  • Our daily trips to the sea to carry out our research have enabled us to establish a climate of trust with the whales, sperm whales and dolphins of Guadeloupe, who alone decide to interact with humans in a calm, serene atmosphere.

  • On each trip, we use our hydrophone (underwater microphone) and we decipher the sounds heard in the sea, whale songs, sperm whale codas, dolphin whistles and pilot whales of Guadeloupe. These sounds, heard live, allow us to decide on the orientation of the boat to give us the best chance to observe the animals.

  • A unique experience, a scientific, ecological and educational approach, based on the principles of non-intrusion and mutual respect for the dolphins, sperm whales and whales of Guadeloupe.
