8/11 Silver Bank, Dominican Republic

The warm shallow waters of the Silver Bank – a submerged limestone plateau between the Dominican Republic and Turks & Caicos – is the winter breeding ground for thousands of North Atlantic humpback whales. The government of the Dominican Republic has established it as a ‘Sanctuary for the Marine Mammals of the Dominican Republic’, limiting the number, frequency and duration of sightseeing trips to the area, and so minimising the disturbance of the whales while providing those lucky enough to gain access with an exclusive experience. Conscious Breath Adventures operate a seven-night live-aboard whale-watching cruise, including five days on the Silver Bank, from £2,754 per person.
