Swim with the humpback whales!

If you're planning to go to the DR between late January and early April, you might want to consider a liveaboard trip to the Silver Bank to swim with the humpback whales. Conscious Breath Adventures http://www.consciousbreathadventures.com/ runs week long trips. You will be in the water with humpbacks and their playful calves, hear the haunting songs sung by the males and live aboard a luxurious boat where you can watch the surface action at all hours!

Whale watching is normally mid-January to mid-March. The best guide is Kim Beddall of Whale Samana as there are regulations to keep and many companies do not adhere or observe the proper distances as the whales are not be stressed at this time.

Here is Kims website.

I think that's too late in the year. The whales start their northward migration early in April . Check the Conscious Breath Adventures web site for schedules.

I hate to say it but you are treading on very dangerous ground of self promotion and advertising your own website and business as this is against the guidelines of TripAdvisor and your posts will be deleted. Obviously you did not read the posting guidelines before you entered your posts on this forum.
