Whale Watching in Samana

Here's What You Get

Did you know the World Wildlife Fund considers the Dominican Republic one of the top places to Whale Watch in the world?

It's true! Keep reading so we can tell you why.

For the last millennia, Humpback Whales have been visiting the Dominican Republic for only TWO months out of the year. So consider yourself lucky if you're visiting from January 20 - March 20.

Will you ever get a chance to go Whale Watching again in your life?

Not like this you won't. Whale Watching is unique in the Dominican Republic because...

  • We're not talking dozens, scores, or even hundreds of Humpback Whales. We're talking thousands. Yes, thousands that make their way from the cold waters of the North Atlantic to the warm waters of Samana Bay. Humpback Whales are the Dominican Republic's original tourists!

  • Humpback Whales don't come South to relax. They make their journey to give birth and to mate in Samana's protected inlet of pleasant Caribbean waters. Not only will you see full-grown adult Humpback Whales (which can be as long as 50 feet and weigh 8,000 pounds) but also new born calves following their mothers. Is that unique or what?

  • Did I mention it was mating season? The male Humpbacks are driven to pro-create. It's common to find large competitive groups (pods) of male Humpbacks jousting for the opportunity to mate with a single female. That means lots of pectoral fin slaps, tail slaps and even breaches!

What can we say, it's the call of nature; welcome to the "Motel" of the Caribbean.

So we've explained why Whale Watching is unique but that's just the beginning! Our Whale Watching excursion from Punta Cana to Samana By Bus is sooo much MORE.

Besides Whale Watching in our spacious catamaran, did we mention you also...

  • Hop on a comfy bus from Punta Cana to the tranquil fishing village of Miches. You'll transverse the scenic Oriental Mountain range to reach the southern shores of Samana Bay..

  • Set foot on Cayo Levantado - known more popularly as Bacardi Island. Once the hiding place of British Pirate Jack Bannister, this sandy sanctuary is now one of the country's most coveted offshore keys with powdery sands and lazy, lapping azure waters. Lunch is served on the beach! A typical Dominican lunch spread of rice, beans, meat, salad, fruit and sweets.

  • Jump on an open-air Safari Truck that will take you deep into Samana's mountainous countryside, a completely different region of the Dominican Republic.

  • Saddle up for a horseback ride along the Limon River before it crashes down over a mountain ridge. Truly a sight to see, the Limon Waterfall is an awe-inspiring cascade that free falls 170 feet into a green lagoon below.

So RECAP: Bus ride, Safari Truck Ride, Horseback Ride, Boat Ride, Whale Watching and your toes in the sand of the infamous Cayo Levantado Island.

If you can do only ONE excursion during your vacation, Whale Watching from Punta Cana to Samana by Bus should be it!

There's only TWO months out of the year to witness these majestic mammals of the sea. With reason, space is incredibly limited so book NOW to reserve your spot.

It's Whale Watching people! Time to check a BIG one off the bucket list!

We'll see you in Samana!
