Swim With Humpback Whales

Conscious Breath Adventures’ guests travel to the Silver Bank looking to connect with something as large as life, personified by humpback whales. The humpbacks are here to continue their cycle of life in a safe and special place.

Every in-water interaction with a whale has three participants: the swimmer, the whale and those who bring them together. Conscious Breath Adventures’ purpose on the Silver Bank is to use our experience, resources and passion for the whales to facilitate that deeper connection between our guests, the whales, and with the environment and planet as a whole.

You seek to reinvigorate your connection with something literally and figuratively larger than yourself by interacting with wild and free humpback whales. You are open-minded and open-hearted, enlightened, knowledgeable, conscious, and nurturing to yourself and the planet. Whether you travel alone, or with children, parents, co-workers, a partner, or friends, you enjoy connecting with others in exceptional circumstances. You are inspired by the spectacle of life on Earth, and can’t wait to look a humpback whale in the eye!

I’m Captain Gene Flipse. I’ve spent my life on and in the water, especially in the Bahamas and Caribbean. My love of ocean wildernesses and marine life steered me into the diving industry and ultimately onto the Silver Bank where I established Conscious Breath Adventures in 2008.

Conscious Breath Adventures is the culmination of my experience with and excitement about the marine environment. My team and I share the goal of carrying you to a place you can only imagine, both on the ocean and within yourself. As your guide, my greatest reward is watching my guests make that connection between themselves and the natural world. My commitment is to make that journey as safe, fun, and fulfilling as possible.

Humpback whales are among the largest creatures to ever inhabit the planet, with an intelligence and charisma that attracts admirers from all over the world. Every year, thousands undertake the rigorous migration from their summer feeding grounds in the north to their winter breeding grounds on the Silver Bank, part the Sanctuary for the Marine Mammals of the Dominican Republic. Here they court, mate, give birth, and ready their young for the long trip home.

While on the Silver Bank the humpbacks engage in an exhilarating display of social behaviors, intense courtship and competition for mates, and endearing nurturing behaviors between mothers and calves. Powerful yet gentle humpbacks are one of the most gregarious of cetaceans. They freely interact with humans on and in the water.
