Whale Watching in the Dominican Republic

Whale Watching in the Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic is considered one of the Top 10 places in the world to observe Humpback Whales in their natural habitat. Samaná Bay, located on the Samaná Peninsula on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic – 3 hours from Sea Horse Ranch – is the best place to experience this incredible natural phenomenon and witness displays by the most active species of whale in the Atlantic.

From mid-January through the end of March, whale watching tours offer a unique opportunity to see incredible spectacles of whales’ courting behavior, as well as exhibitions of affectionate motherly love towards the newborn calves.

In the winter of 2021 “safe” has taken on a new meaning, not only for whales but for tour passengers as well. This is an ideal winter to watch whales, with less human activity, reduced vessel traffic, lowered levels of ambient sound, resulting in a fascinating opportunity to observe humpbacks under conditions not seen since the 1980’s.

Select a vacation rental property from our collection of luxury homes with three to six bedrooms, located within our beachfront resort.
