Whale, Bird and Butterfly Watching

Whale Watching
A very special feature of Dominican Republic, is the annual visit of Humpback Whales, from December to March, in the Samaná Bay and the Banco de la Plata sanctuary. This is the very magic place where they come to love and reproduce.

Several sites are related to the whale watching activity as the CEBSE web, the  Center for the Conservation and Eco-Development of Samaná Bay and its surroundings that also contains a page for the boat owners association  (Asociación de Dueños de Barcos de la Bahía de Samaná in spanish only) which includes prices but no online contact. Check also the recommendations "Attention Whale Watchers".
