Discover The whales of the Samana peninsula

From the beginning of January until beginning of March, during mating season, humpback whales put on a show in the warm waters of Samana Bay. The seductive play of these large cetaceans with their tails, guarantees some unforgettable moments! Hundreds of them come to the bay's warm waters to give birth to their offspring, before going off again to the fishy waters of New England and Greenland via Newfoundland.
