At the time, I did not know that snorkeling with a whale and her calf should be on my bucket list, but I am so glad that I checked it off! A group of us flew to Grand Turk for the day with the sole purpose of our chartered trip with Brian and Sabine. From the very beginning,

Thank you very much for your positive review of Humpback Whale watching with us. Thanks for joining us in Grand Turk. It's always great to take people who understand the nature of wildlife experiences and accept the reality that it may or may not happen, we are elated that things went positively on your day and you ticked off something that wasn't even on your bucket list yet lol. We always have to be cautious around them and especially when another vessel is present. A stress free situation is a necessity for all parties involved, especially the whales. It is indeed a very surreal experience to snorkel with such large animals but as you seen they are very calm, gentle creatures and when treated with the respect they deserve they are quite content to share their ocean with us, it was an exhilarating encounter and something none of us will ever forget. It will be a pleasure to take you and your son to meet the whales once more when you return. Let us know when you are coming down info@humpbackdiveshack.com. Thanks again. No queue, no wait, stand out from the crowd with The Humpback Dive Shack.

Thank you so much for taking the time to lave us a positive review in relation to your Humpback Whale watching experience in Grand Turk. We were very fortunate to spot a mother whale with her new born calf and even luckier that were in a calm and relaxed state allowing us to quietly slip in beside them, it was an amazing Humpback Whale snorkeling experience. We're glad you got amazing picture, please upload some here and share them with us, we'd love to see them! The whales are something you never forget, it's true, just incredible moments. So happy for you. Thanks again for joining us in the Turks and Caicos for an amazing day with the whales. Small groups, no queue and no wait, stand out from the crowd with info@humpbackdiveshack.com.
