The Humpback Whales are regular visitors in the Bay of Samaná. Every year from
mid January until mid April these huge mammals leave the arctic to mate and give birth
in the protected bay along the Dominican Republic’s east coast.
The whales have been wintering in this region for centuries. This is evidence by old
Taino cave painting in the nearby “Los Haitises” National Park which depict blowing
whales. The Humpback Whale is a water mammal knows for their liveliness and their
singing. They can attain a length of 15 meters and weight up to 30 tones.
Our tour begins taking the new road on one of our modern equipped transport, an hour
road trip watching the countryside along the coast and the range Anamuya & heading to
the fishermen town of Cañitas. Take place in our confortable boat and enjoy the ride to
the sanctuary of the Humpback Whales.
We sail to Cayo Levantado, a beautiful island in the middle of the blue and turquoise
water of Samaná Bay and enjoy a lunch on the beach. Take some time off to relax and
swim before the ride back to Cañitas.
