About the Silver Banks

Approximately 700 km from the shores of the Dominican Republic’s northern coast lies the Silver Bank. The reef was first protected in 1986 and the size of the reserve was increased in 1996. Scientists believe that humpbacks come here to birth their young as the water is warm and shallow, and as there are no fish, predators are not drawn to the area. It is the perfect nursery before the mother and calf begin their journey north. 

The operator that we use is one of three that have permission to snorkel with the humpbacks at Silver Bank. The rules are strict regarding how you interact with the whales and everyone is required to respect them. Scuba diving is not allowed as it disturbs the whales natural behavior. You must remember that it is us that is visiting their world, on the their conditions. Only 60 persons per week, total 500 persons per year, get the opportunity to have this fantastic experience. You can be one of the lucky ones.
