Whale Watching Day Trip From Punta Cana

    What to Expect
    Get ready for a once-in-a-lifetime experience on this day trip from Punta Cana. You’ll be greeted by the majestic presence of humpback whales in the open waters of Samana Bay.

    The Dominican Republic boasts one of the largest and best Humpback breeding sanctuaries in the world. Every year, more than 4,000 whales visit the Bay of Samana for the purpose of breeding. Your knowledgeable host and tour guide will tell you all about the habits of these magnificent creatures.

    As soon as whales are spotted your boat will make its way cautiously to their location, where you’ll marvel at the sight of these wonderful creatures in the wild. Hear the eerie but soothing sound of the male humpback singing to attract a mate.

    Next, it’s time to party, so get ready for a visit to the famous Bacardi Island, a little slice of paradise, where you’ll have lunch. Enjoy the powdery white sand and swaying palm trees, and take time for a dip in the warm turquoise waters before returning to Punta Cana. (Lunch location is subject to change without previous notice)
