The Dominican Republic serves as one of three breeding grounds of humpback whales in the North Atlantic, located near the Samana Peninsula. Once a year between January and March, some three to five thousand humpback whales return to the Caribbean waters to give birth and mate for the following year. Another breeding ground is situated 90 miles off the North Coast, at Silver Banks. The show is magnificent when the 40-ton giant males jump up to the water and fall down a few meters ahead. If it does not attract any female reactions, the male tries to distract them with a long and monotonous song that the whales can hear up to a radius of 30 kilometers. Only those who are diving can hear this song.
There's still time to get you booked for this upcoming whale watching season. I'd love to help you plan your trip, so be sure to call me or send me an email when you're ready to start planning.
