WHALE WATCHING IN THE SAMANÁ BAY

Watch the majestic humpback whales that come every year to reproduce in the Samaná Bay!

Every year, from mid-January to mid-March, nearly 3 000 humpback whales come to reproduce and give birth in Samaná Bay. These marine mammals travel thousands of kilometers to spend the winter in the protected waters of the bay located on the northeast side of the Dominican Republic. This migration has been going on for centuries, as shown by the paintings found in the caves of Los Haïtises National Park.
Humpback whales are known for their size and song, but also for their cheerful and playful temperament. They can reach more than 15 meters in length and weight up to 60 tons. Their large pectoral fins can reach a third of their total length and their jumps are majestic. You will be able to observe the mammals quietly and freely evolving in the sea, alone or in groups. If you are lucky, you will be able to observe a couple and its calf, and if by chance they decide to offer you a show, you will be amazed by this unforgettable memory!

Full day excursion – all inclusive.
Accessible to the whole family.
