Whale Watching, Samaná Peninsula

Samaná Peninsula
Dominican Republic's insider take:

Between January and March, up to 5,000 humpback whales make their way to Samaná Bay to mate. During this time, you can see male humpbacks standing on their tails, breaching, and generally acting like giant teenagers as they try to get female humpbacks to notice them. Taking a whale-watching tour from Samaná Bay during the season means you'll be just about guaranteed a sighting. There are many operators in the area, but our pick is Victoria Marine (809-538-2494;, run by Kim Beddall, a Canadian who has spent more than two decades in the Dominican Republic running whale-watching excursions, educating tourists, and making sure other companies follow environmental regulations.
