We observe cetaceans in Guadeloupe all year round. We go out day-to-dayAt 8.00 am and sometimes at 12.30 pm. An outing lasts about 3h30.
The departure is from the fishing port of Baille Argentbetween Deshaies and Pointe Noire (7 km from Deshaies towards Pointe Noire and 4 km from Pointe Noire towards Deshaies). At the pontoon of the boat gas station.
We are not tourism professionalsWe welcome you on board to share our passion and experience.
We are a association under the law of 1901, recognised as being of general interest for its scientific research on cetaceans of Guadeloupe and its environmental actions in the marine environment in the Agoa sanctuary in Guadeloupe.
We do not propose you to take part in our scientific research, which consists in staying for hours, without moving, to record the sounds of the cetaceans, that would appear very long and frustrating to you... On the contrary, we put all our knowledge and our experiment to take you along to the meeting of the animals and to observe them under the best conditions.
On every trip, we use our hydrophone (underwater microphone) and we decipher the sounds heard in the sea, whale songs, sperm whale codas, dolphin and pilot whale whistles. These sounds, heard live, allow us to decide on the orientation of the boat in order to give ourselves a better understanding of the sea. the best chance of observing the animals while respecting their own behaviour at the meeting.

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.
