Samana Whale Watching Sanctuary

Samana Whale Watching Sanctuary

The Sanctuary of the Humpback Whales in Samaná, located in the northeast corner of the Dominican Republic, is one of the best whale watching experiences in the world. It’s a place where humpbacks are treated with the greatest respect – Samaná whale watching is unique because the waters are virtually off-limits to any boats except for whale watching boats, so the whales are comfortable and friendly.

During Dominican Republic whale watching season in Samaná, you’ll see not only full-grown humpbacks, but also newborn calves swimming under the watchful eyes of their mothers. You’ll also see plenty of male humpbacks battling for the attention of their prospective mates, which results in a lot of fun activity: leaping out of the water into the air and slapping their fins and tails to make a thunderous clap.
