  • Whale watching is something impressive, can not visit in season which is between January and April.

  • Course it is hoped to get lucky, and no it is not often breaks. But the captain and his sailors do whatever it takes so that you can see whales closely. And it's magic.

  • CA is located in samana, several agencies offer this service out of punta cana, and apparently for those who want to take the plane with the new highway is more than two hours of road... But don't expect not to see off season (go late January max early March)
