Whale season begins in January in the Caribbean and Dominican Today underlines the importance of Samaná Bay in the Dominican Republic, where visitors will have the opportunity to whale watch with day excursions from various Punta Cana hotels.
The article states that “Samaná is best known for the hundreds of humpback whales that visit each year from late January to late March. They visit the Samaná Bay to mate and to nurse their newborn calves. Due to the mating season, males are very active to ‘show off’ to the females, making Samaná one of the best places in the world to whale watch, according to the World Wildlife Fund.”
