• Welcome to Conscious Breath Adventures

Conscious Breath Adventures leads life changing cruises to see and swim with humpback whales on the Silver Bank. As part of the Sanctuary for the Marine Mammals of the Dominican Republic, this secret corner of the ocean is the largest breeding ground for the north Atlantic humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae).

This is an adventure for all ages and skill levels. The trip is a journey into a world of whales experienced by just a few hundred lucky travelers every year.

Using careful, respectful approach techniques, we gently join the whales in the water. You will look a humpback whale in the eye. You may see a baby whale nursing. Or witness dancing whales. Or be immersed in the bone tingling song of a humpback whale.

Meeting the whales in their home on their terms is the ultimate wildlife experience. Join us!
