Full description
This tour is only available from the period between January 20 until March 30 each year. Until recently, it was believed that only 85% of the Atlantic humpback whales were born in Dominican waters and returned annually for mating and breeding. But a recent study revealed that all North Atlantic populations come to breed in these waters. On-board a specialized boat, you will enjoy the following: impressive mating acrobatics, romantic male chants and jumps of the consorts. Samaná is considered one of the best places in the world for the sighting of humpback whales. Join this whale watching excursion with a visit to the beautiful beach of Cayo Island (Bacardi Island) and enjoy an exotic excursion (if option selected).
