This Marine Sanctuary provides a safe haven for Humpback Whales who are gathering to court, mate, calve and rear their young.  From January through April they arrive by the thousands to find the ideal mating and birth area.  The sanctuary also provides safety and protection to females and their calves.  When they are physically strong enough, they will travel back to the North Eastern US Coast.  This place is one of 3 spots in the world where people can swim and snorkel with the whales.  During this trip you will learn a lot of humpback whale facts.

During the 6 day itinerary, guests have the opportunity to observe the whales at close range.  You can watch them spin and play and hear their beautiful songs resonating through the water.  Considered to be one of the most intelligent mammals on earth, you will be awed by their immense power and grace.
