Whale watching

The Dominican Republic serves as one of three breeding grounds of humpback whales in the North Atlantic, located near the Samana Peninsula. Once a year between January and March, some three to five thousand humpback whales return to the Caribbean waters to give birth and mate for the following year. Another breeding ground is situated 90 miles off the North Coast at Silver Banks. The show is magnificent when the 40-ton giant males jump up to the water and fall a few meters ahead.
