Swim with Humpback Whales in Coral Bay

Month: January 2024

This full day tour day begins with a beautiful reef experience snorkel where you may encounter turtles, reef sharks, stingrays and various species of fish! We then make our way out to the open ocean to observe the whales in their playground.

If and when our trained guide deems it is safe to do so, guests will be separated into groups of 7, ready to enter the water. With the groups taking turns, 7 swimming guests will enter the water with 2 crew at a time, positioned to the side or in front of the whale’s path at a safe distance. It is then all up to the whales – each interaction will be on their terms. Humpback whales can be curious and may approach swimmers, or they may simply pass by. Spotter plane and drone is used to find and determine the sizes of claves before we get in the water.
