WHALE WATCHING
Maui
From November to May, humpback whales gather to calve in the warm waters off Maui. To fully appreciate them, join a whale-watching excursion. From the boat, see the whales swim, breach and play.

SWIM WITH WHALE SHARKS
Isla Mujeres, Mexico
The largest fish in the sea, whale sharks can be found in warm waters around the globe—including just north of Cancún. Here, you can snorkel with these gentle giants in their natural habitat from May to September.

PLAY WITH DOLPHINS
Atlantis, Paradise Island, Bahamas
Interact with bottlenose dolphins at Dolphin Cay, a sophisticated 14-acre marine habitat and rescue-rehabilitation facility. Its first 16 dolphins were rescued from their Mississippi home during Hurricane Katrina and have all fully recovered since relocation.

FEED THE CROCODILES
Grand Palladium Hotels & Resorts, Riviera Maya, Mexico
Located within the resort’s mangrove-rich grounds, a dedicated crocodile habitat allows guests to witness an exciting feeding exhibition.

HAVE LUNCH WITH MONKEYS
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Book an excursion to meet friendly and adorable squirrel monkeys. They’ll sit on your shoulder and eat from your hand if you offer them fruit and seeds, and they love to pose for the camera.
