Where you'll be

Samana is considered one of the best places in the world for humpback whale watching. These beautiful and giant marine mammals, breathe air and come out regularly to the surface, remain in apnea for about 20 minutes, but can remain underwater for up to 40 minutes. After the long trip they make and during which they do not feed, they spend part of the winter in the Bay of Samana, still without food.
