Whale Watching in the Dominican Republic

Whale Watching in the Dominican Republic is one of the top activities you get to do when visiting the island.
You’ll have the chance to see between 1,500 and 2,000 whales migrating to the waters of Samaná Bay on a boat tour or from the Punta Balandra Land Observatory.

The official whale watching season is from mid-January to March, but excursions are available while there are whales in the bay.

Every year, the Bay of Samana and its surrounding waters, in the northeast of the Dominican Republic, become the scene of one of nature’s most impressive shows. Thousands of humpback whales leave the North Atlantic to travel to the warm waters of the tropics, where their breeding areas are located. Discovering these marine giants, in their natural habitat, is an experience that must be enjoyed at least once in a lifetime.

The Samana Peninsula and its huge bay is a place full of surprises. An idyllic tourist destination but, above all, this corner of the Dominican Republic is an authentic natural paradise.

Los Haitises National Park, the wonderful beaches of Las Galeras and Las Terrenas, the spectacular waterfall El Limón, the famous Cayo Levantado, and the Humpback Whale Sanctuary are just some of the many attractions that you can experience in the area.
