Trip Info

Join us for an amazing week of snorkeling with giants in the warm clear waters of the Silver Banks! Humpback whales may be encountered in numerous places around the world but nowhere on earth compares to the quality and consistency of the encounters in the Dominican Republic.

Each spring, pregnant humpbacks migrate to the Silver Banks to give birth and to mate. The newborn calves are extremely curious animals that love to interact with swimmers while under the watchful eye of their mothers. Some mothers are cautious around humans but others actively encourage their young to play with snorkellers.
Floating within arms reach of a ‘small’ humpback calf is an experience that is hard to describe. There is an obvious intelligence that you will pick up on immediately. But more than this, humpbacks exhibit a feeling of wonder; a curiosity towards humans that is unmatched among other marine species.

At first you may feel intimidated by the sheer size of the adults as you swim along beside them but humpback whales are extremely gentle creatures. When you see how carefully they move their bodies past you (raising their 3m long pectoral fins to avoid any physical contact) you will soon start to relax and enjoy an incredible week of humpback whale encounters that will be etched in your mind forever.

Let Big Fish Expeditions help you plan your next memorable experience.
