Snorkel with Humpback Whales!
Turks & Caicos Aggressor II

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 excursion boats.

The Perfect Compromise for Snorkelers and Divers:
Are the divers itching for a little bottom time?  No problem, just spend a couple of nights on Grand Turk and enjoy boat diving plus unlimited shore diving with your extension packages. We have been to Grand Turk seven times, so the perfect extension is easy for us to arrange.
