Dominican Republic makes the list of top 10 Best Snorkeling Destinations
Amid oceans of exotic snorkeling locations just waiting to be explored, Dominican Republic flew the flag for the Caribbean. Silver Back made it on CNN’s list of top 10 places for snorkeling.
Silver Back is one of only a few places in the world where humans can swim and snorkel alongside humpback whales. It is a relatively shallow stretch of Caribbean Sea making it off limits to large ships. This makes it a safe haven for the North Atlantic humpback whale population to mate and give birth.
The best time of the year for snorkelers to catch up with the humpback whales is between December and April when they pass the area.
