Aquatic Adventures attempts to keep its schedule accurate at all times, as spaces fill or become available throughout the year. Please do contact us with all dates that you're interested in experiencing the Silver Bank in 2018. Even if the schedule shows "sold out,” we may still be able to eventually accommodate you.
Please keep in mind that anytime throughout the season is an excellent time to experience the Silver Bank. Humpback whales start to arrive in the Dominican Republic in December and leave at the end of April. There are plenty of whales anytime throughout the season, and we have the expertise to find and work whales regardless of when you visit. Reserving your space now for the 2019 season assures you of the week of your choice and the opportunity to visit the Silver Bank with the most experienced whale watching team in the area.
