Photos & Description for this The Aggressor II, Dominican Republic

From the end January to the start of April each year this luxury liveaboard relocates to the Silver Banks north east of the Dominican Republic for an amazing Humpback Whale safari.  Departing from Puerto Plata every Saturday guests will have the chance to observe the majestic whales as they socialise, mate and calve in the warm tropical waters of the Silver Banks both from the boat and snorkelling.  As one of the only licensed boats permitted in the sanctuary during this time it is bound to be an unforgettable experience.

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 Eastern U.S. coast. This sanctuary, also known as the “Sanctuary for the Marine Mammals of the Dominican Republic” is one of three places in the world where  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! 

The Turks & Caicos Aggressor II is one of the few yachts permitted access to the Silver Bank during the Humpback mating and breeding season.
