    Whale Watching


    The whale season is from January to April. They are to be found in the protected reefs of Banco de la Plata (Silver bank) just outside Samana till the reefs of Punta Cana. During these months approx. 2000 to 3000 Humpback Whales migrate from the cold North into the warm sea in order to mate or to breed.
    zxcvnbmdferiutfghg
    This indeed is a true majestic spectacle to watch those giants of the sea with a length of up to 17.5 yard (16m) and a weight of 40 tons jumping and diving in the water. Humpback Whales are said to be the most entertaining whales of all, especially during mating season. With respect to these beautiful but also endangered animals we deliberately obstain from disturbing them and refrain from diving.

    A Whale Watching Tour is a breathtaking experience that you will never forget.
