Dominican Republic

Explore the stunning coastlines of this hidden gem of the Caribbean — the Dominican Republic has become a popular whale watching destination, especially to see humpback whales. The Sanctuary for the Marine Mammals of the Dominican Republic offers unbeatable opportunities to see humpbacks, although other species such as the pilot whale have been spotted in these waters.

Silver Bank, a submerged bank to the north of the Dominican Republic, has been a breeding and calving area for humpbacks for many years, and was declared a whale sanctuary in 1986. Most visitors keen to see whales will head to Samaná Bay during the main season, which usual runs from mid-January to mid-March, making this a must for anyone on a Dominican Republic yacht charter or private visit.
