  • Tips

Every year the humpback whales come to Samaná Bay to mate and give birth to their calves. Seeing the humpback whales “live” is probably one of the most impressive experiences of your vacation.

On your whale watching tour, you will have the opportunity to watch the humpback whales lift their massive bodies out of the water to play or impress the females. Or watch calves as they make their first attempts at swimming alongside their mother.

After the whale watching we will drive to Bacardi Island for lunch, where you will have enough time to relax on the beach and swim (on the full day tour).

  • Time for swimming on Cayo Levantado (on the full day tour)
