What to expect

One of the most beautiful attractions in the Dominican Republic is the Samana humpback whale sanctuary, their natural mating and calving grounds. To see these large mammals breach the water is one of the greatest sights in nature. From January until March, you can see these active creatures frolicking in the Atlantic.

Every year, up to 5,000 humpback whales return to Samana Bay and the surrounding waters to give birth and to mate. You'll hear the call of the male humpbacks' courting song and see the incredible displays from these enormous mammals, flipping and breaching, vying for the attention of the demure females.

After whale spotting, you'll head to Samana harbour. Enjoy a panoramic city tour before lunch at Dadam restaurant. In the afternoon, sail to the shores of Cayo Levantado island – a true tropical hideaway, where you can cast away on the sands, take in the scenery or take a dip.
