what you'll do
Ready to seas the day? (Sorry, we had to.) You and a friend are joining the super talented National Geographic explorers Paul Nicklen and Cristina Mittermeier on an epic expedition you’ll remember forever: swimming with whale sharks in the Caribbean! Your adventure will begin on a private boat with Paul, Cristina and local experts as you head out for some quality (and exclusive!) snorkel time with these gentle giants. There are plenty of fish in the sea—but on this trip, you’ll swim with the biggest. And if you’re whaley lucky (last one, we promise), giant manta rays, dolphins and sea turtles might even join you! Good thing you have professional photographers along for the ride to document it all. Flights and a stay at the ultra swanky Zoëtry Villa Rolandi on the island of Isla Mujeres included.
No donation or payment is necessary to enter or win this sweepstakes.
