Next month kicks off one of our most favorite times of the year: Whale watching season! From January – April in the Silver Bank and January – March in Samaná, travelers can witness North Atlantic Humpback Whales in their natural habitats in Dominican Republic. Every year, these magnificent creatures migrate from colder northern waters to birth and nurse their calves making an awe-inspiring sight to see.
We take our Spanish language students on the very informative expeditions of Canadian marine mammal specialist and nature conservationist Kim Beddall. She has been leading whale watching tours in Samaná since 1983. Kim’s consistent thrive for protecting the whales and their natural habitat in Samaná has led to the development of a sustainable, meaningful and responsible nature tourism in this area.
