Marine life Dominican Republic
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Marine life

The under-water wildlife is a real delight for divers. There are barracudas and turtles, though you are most likely to encounter different types of crustaceans. In winter, during mating season, you will often see humpback whales in Samana Bay.
