Humpback Whales Snorkeling Adventure 2018

Humpback Whales Snorkeling Adventure Silver Banks

Humpback Whale breaching at Silver BankEvery year, between January and April, thousands of Humpback Whales gather in an area know as Silver Bank, to court, mate, calve and rear their young.  North of the Dominican Republic, and an equal distance to the Turks & Caicos Islands, this area is a designated Marine Sanctuary, approx. 20 sq miles in size.
The beautiful Turks & Caicos Aggressor is one of the few vessels with a permit, to take guests snorkeling with the whales. You will be able to observe Humpback Whales at close range, see them spin and play, and hear their songs resonating through the water. Witness the power and grace of some of of the most intelligent mammals on earth. It's a life-changing experience.

More Details: 

Renowned photographers Scott and Lauren Johnson of Sea Scape Images are hosting this awe-inspiring experience every year.
You may say “but this is not a dive trip” – which is how Scott reacted the first time his wife Lauren suggested this trip. Several trips later, he is hooked: ‚ÄúThis is one of my favorite trips! My fairly extensive history of scuba diving prompted me to think the snorkeling would be unsatisfying and maybe even boring. I could not have been further from the truth as the opportunity to swim within a few feet of the 30ft+ humpbacks, to hear them sing, and to watch them put on shows above the surface has been one of most awe-inspiring, humbling and exciting experiences of my life! This trip is perfect for divers and non-divers alike.”

This popular trip is only available a few weeks every year. Due to a last minute cancellation, a few spaces have opened up – secure yours today!
