Punta Cana Excursions

Samana bay Whale Watching

Samana bay Whale Watching

Here's What You Get

Every year, thousands of Humpback Whales start their journey from the cold waters in the North Atlantic to the Caribbean. More than 1,500 of them visit the Bay of Samana which gives us a presence of about 300 Humpback Whales at any time during the Whale Season (January 20 to March 20). The World Wildlife Fund considers the Bay of Samana as one of the best places in the world to watch the Whales.

Leaving from the Bayahibe hotels we'll enjoy the beautiful landscapes of the Oriental Mountain Range north of Bayahibe before arriving at the southern shores of Samana Bay. From here, you'll be transported, by boat, to Cayo Levantado, also known as Bacardi Island because of it close resemblance to the beaches Bacardi Rum once used for their famous commercials. Cayo Levantado is nothing short of a tropical oasis - a small island in the middle of the ocean with turquoise waters and white sands. Lunch will be served in this beautiful tropical setting.

From Cayo Levantado, the excursion continues, by boat, deeper into the Samana Bay to observe humpback whales. Sightings are incredibly common and the whales are frisky! Enjoy the jumps and playfulness of these incredible creatures, making for unforgettable photographs.

The normal, non-stop, driving time between Bayahibe and the bay of Samana is approx. 3 hours. To make the trip more comfortable, we will some stops on the way for bathroom breaks and to purchase food/refreshments. Because of this, the transfer time will be about 4 1/2 hours. The ride is part of the excursion as the tour deals a great deal with Dominican culture and the everyday scenes taking place outside the bus. The return trip is under 4 hours. Please not that this itinerary is subject to change and you may go whale watching before visiting Cayo Levantado.
