Whale watching in Samana

The visit to the Sanctuary of the Humpback Whales in Samana is one of the most beautiful excursions in the Dominican Republic, the beautiful Samana Bay and the Silver Bank, located in the Northwest of the country, where every year, between December And March, about 2,000 humpback whales come to reproduce in the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

Until recently, it was believed that only 85% of the Atlantic humpback whales were born in Dominican waters and returned annually to mate and breed. But a recent study revealed that all populations of the Atlantic come to reproduce in our waters.

It’s an amazing sight waiting for you every summer in the Samana Bay, humpback whales that come from the seas of Iceland, Greenland, Canada, and North America, who come to the Caribbean Sea to give birth and seek a mate in the hot water. From January to March, thousands remain in Samana Bay.

This tour is only available in the period from December 15 to March 30 of every year.
