What You'll Do
Paul Nicklen and Cristina Mittermeier are looking for someone awesome to join their SeaLegacy team on a trip to the Caribbean. And that someone awesome is YOU. Pack your bags (and underwater camera!) because you and a friend are heading to Dominica, the Nature Island of the Caribbean, for an epic expedition: swimming with sperm whales! And this is much more than just whale watching. Paul and Cristina are the eyes behind the world’s most impactful wildlife photography and conservation efforts, and now you get to see it all through their lenses—literally! You’ll swim with the sperm whales, snorkel among the coral reefs and, if you’re really lucky, you might just spot humpback whales and dolphins in the crystal blue waters too. Flights and hotel are on us.
No donation or payment is necessary to enter or win this sweepstakes.
