Humpback Whales

Visitors to Bahía de Samaná during the winter months have a fantastic opportunity to spot humpback whales. Thousands of these behemoths migrate from the North Atlantic to the waters around the Dominican Republic to breed and give birth to their calves. Peak whale-watching season runs from January through March, and the magnificent mammals put on exhilarating shows, often leaping from the water or slapping their tails and fins on the surface.
