Whale Watching in Samana

It is an amazing sight waiting for you every winter in the Samana Bay, the humpback whales moving from the their arctic home to the warm waters of the protective bay of Samana to give birth and mate. The show is impressive, when the 40-ton males jump up the water and fall down a few meters ahead.

    Every year from the middle of January until the end of March you are able to see Humpback Whales in Samana. Samana is considered one of the best places in the world for humpback whale watching. These beautiful and giant marine mammals, breathe air and come out regularly to the surface, remain in apnea for about 20 minutes, but can remain under water for up to 40 minutes.

    Whales come to give birth to their little ones because the whalebone, when born, has a very thin layer of fat to withstand the cold waters. At birth it measures between 3.50 and 5 meters, and weighs a ton.

    After being collected from your hotel in Puerto Plata, Sosua, or Cabarete, make your way to Samana and enjoy the amazing views of the lovely Dominican landscapes. Departing from the dock in the town of Samana, we will transport you in comfortable, fast and secure boats and navigate in search of whales.

    Duration: 9 hours
