As every year, the season for whale watching in Samaná Bay, ends in the middle of March. More than 40,000 tourists come each year in small boats to approach the place where these huge and gentle marine animals usually stay.
This season, visitors who will not want to use boats may go to a recently created observatory platform in Punta Balandra, near the town of Samaná.
Each winter, 3,000 to 5,000 whales migrate from the cold waters of the north to the warm crystalline waters of the Bay of Samaná, considered “the home of humpback whales” in the Caribbean, with intentions of mating and giving birth. The females remain in the shallow waters of the inner bay to provide a nursery for their young.
Samaná Bay is the only place in the Caribbean where you can watch humpback whales which visit the site each year. The region is a mountainous peninsula marked by his intense relationship with the sea and is characterized by lush vegetation inhabited by hundreds of thousands of palm trees that adorn the hills and beaches.
Ask in the reception of BlueBay Villas Doradas hotel to book your visit to Samaná.
