booking About this tour

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]The whale adventure starts by heading to the Punta Cana airport where we will board the plane that will take us to Samana. After arriving at the tiny Samana Airport we board transportation that will take us to the famous Samana Wharf.

Each year the Dominican Republic becomes the showcase for one of natures’ most incredible and natural phenomenon’s as literally hundreds of Humpback Whales make their way from the North Atlantic to the Bay of Samana to breed and give birth to their young. This truly is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see these amazing mammals in their natural environment.

This tour is a great opportunity to take some wonderful photographs but you’ll find it quite tricky getting perfect shots, so video is often better. As you head out from the marina and into the open waters of Samana Bay, the first thing you’ll be looking for are signs of spouting, flocking (showing of tails) and breaching in the distance. Your English speaking host and boat tour guide will have an encyclopedic knowledge of Humpback Whales and will inform you of all of their habits. As soon as a whale is spotted your boat will make its way cautiously over to where they are located where you will enjoy an impressive view of these wonderful creatures. You’ll may even hear the eerie but soothing sound of the male Humpbacks singing their solitary songs which is believed to help attract a mate.

Tropical Forrest Horseback riding
Make your way into the tropical forest, for a short horseback riding tour along the River Arroyo Chico. The dense vegetation will captivate your senses and leave you with a real taste of adventure. Ultimately, the trail leads to the picturesque Limon Waterfall.

Limón Waterfall
An impressive 165 foot drop of fresh water, right in the middle of the jungle. Splash yourself in the refreshing waters of the lagoons at the base of the waterfall. And don’t forget to take the perfect picture of your family and yourself in this memorable place.

After all that excitement, you will enjoy a nice Dominican lunch buffet and it’s time to party. So, get ready for a visit to the famous Cayo Levantado, known as the “Bacardi Island”. Beautiful powder white sand, swaying palm trees and time for a dip in turquoise tropical waters of this island makes for a perfect way to end the day before returning home.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″ css=”.vc_custom_1454910478960{background-color: #f2f2f2 !important;border-radius: 5px !important;}”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1454910468756{padding-top: 10px !important;padding-bottom: 10px !important;padding-left: 5px !important;}”]
