Marine Sanctuary

The Silver Bank, nestled in the warm, turquoise waters of the Dominican Republic, is a submerged plateau and one of the few places in the world where you can swim and snorkel with humpback whales in their natural habitat. This unique marine sanctuary, located approximately 80 miles north of Puerto Plata, offers an unparalleled aquatic adventure, drawing nature enthusiasts and marine biologists from around the globe.

As a designated whale sanctuary, the Silver Bank is a winter breeding and calving ground for thousands of North Atlantic humpback whales. From January to April, these magnificent creatures migrate from their cold feeding grounds to the warmer Caribbean waters, creating one of the largest gatherings of humpback whales on the planet. The area's strict protection measures and regulated visitor access ensure a respectful and sustainable interaction between humans and whales, making it an ethical and magical experience.

Visitors to the Silver Bank will find themselves immersed in the whales' world, where the gentle giants' songs fill the water, and intimate encounters with these majestic beings become moments that last a lifetime. The clear Caribbean waters offer excellent visibility, allowing for vivid observations of the whales' intricate behaviors, from powerful breaches and tail slaps on the surface to tender mother-calf interactions below
