    After having been collected from your accommodation, you will begin your day out on the water to watch whales in their natural sanctuary.  You will visit a lost paradise aboard a certified boat out in the privileged waters of Samaná and Miches Bay. The whale watching sanctuary in Samana Bay is the winter home of a sea giant, an acrobat of the sea: the humpback whale.

As you observe these enormous and majestic beings (which can reach 53 feet in length and 40 tons in weight), you will learn more about their biology, ecology and behavior.

We really enjoyed the Excellence Tour with the dolphins. We were able to interact with the dolphins a lot and beautifully in a way that is seldom seen. The dolphins are so well trained and did everything great. We were very satisfied.

Very good day, very friendly guide and driver. Staff on the boat very involved in the search for the whales that we were lucky enough to see on several occasions. Magic show, I strongly recommend.

We have not seen as many whales as we would like and it has rained intermittently all day, and I would still do the tour again. Everyone has been very nice and friendly and the food was very good.

The tour was well organized, there is a lot to offer, very nice tour guide and did everything possible to offer us a successful excursion. We saw the whales too!

Super good excursion! The guides are great! TO DO!
