JUST ANNOUNCED! Join Team Ninja as we head off to the Silver Bank on a very special expedition to swim with majestic humpback whales. From February 3 – 10, 2018 we’ll spend 7 nights aboard the gorgeous M/V T&C Aggressor II voyaging from Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic to the Silver Bank Marine Sanctuary to swim and snorkel with these beautiful giants.
Designated as a Marine Sanctuary, the Silver Bank provides a safe wintering haven for the entire North Atlantic Humpback Whale population who gather here from January through April by the thousands to court, mate, calve, and rear their young. Humpback whales find the area ideal for mating and giving birth. The banks offer safety and protection to females and their calves until the young are strong enough to make the trip back to the North Atlantic. This sanctuary is one of only three places in the worldwhere humans can swim and snorkel among the whales.
During the week, guests will observe the whales at close range which includes above the water and soft in water encounters. You’ll see them spin and play, hear their haunting songs resonating through the water and sense the power and grace of some of the most intelligent mammals on earth – it’s a life-changing experience! And our ship is one of only a few yachts permitted access to the Silver Bank during the Humpback season.
This is an extremely limited trip with only 4 spots available.
The package includes shared occupancy in an air-conditioned stateroom fitted with private toilets, showers and sinks. A full breakfast (cooked to order), buffet lunch and an elegant sit down chef prepared dinner are served. Mid morning and afternoon snacks are provided on the tenders. Beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) are complimentary while onboard. But most importantly, tons of whale action. We’ll spend our days in the water swimming and snorkeling up close with these amazing animals and also watching them from the tenders.
