This will be you,
snorkeling with Atlantic Humpback Whales, living aboard
the yacht Turks & Caicos Aggressor II. It is only
possible for eight weeks each spring off the Silver
Banks, between Dominican Republic (“D.R.”) and Turks & Caicos
Islands. These warm, protected waters beckon the
Humpbacks as they fulfill an instinctual migrating
ritual. Fourteen of us will bear witness to this
miracle. Everyday will be a learning experience. Every
sunset will be spent sipping drinks on the yacht's
sundeck with friends. We
are going to the D.R. and, specifically, the unspoiled
waters of the Silver Banks to witness the mating and
birthing behavior of Humpback Whales. Our last two trips
sold out before the ink was dry on the flyer! Ask to see
Dave's trip videos.
With a dependable
pair of fins, mask, snorkel and wetsuit, you should be
within a few yards of these amazing mammals. For five
days, the opportunities for whale encounters are
limitless. Our past groups encountered multiple whales
almost every morning and afternoon from the zodiac
