You'll sail around Samana Bay continuously looking for whales mating and breeding their calves, getting as close as possible without disturbing them. Lunch is included in your tour, as well as hotel pickup and drop-off in Punta Cana.
The Bay of Samaná attracts humpback whales on a regular basis. From mid-January to mid-April each year, these massive mammals leave the arctic to mate and give birth in a protected cove off the Dominican Republic's east coast.
Combine two of the Dominican Republic's top attractions—migrating humpback whales and the idyllic Cayo Levantado (also known as Bacardi Island) on a single tour. Take a boat cruise through the Samana Bay to see the whales jumping and slapping their fins, then retire to Cayo Levantado for a buffet lunch and open bar.
