Though the official humpback whale touring season may be over, the whales are still hanging around!

In the North Coast of the Dominican Republic, whale-watching season is mid-January to mid-March. At this time, the whales migrate to Samana to mate in one of the largest whale sanctuaries in the world. Every year, between 3000 and 5000 whales make the trek from the Arctic waters to the Caribbean.

Throughout the season, you can take boat trips from Samana Bay to see the breath-taking whales. The Dominican Republic enforces strict whale protection laws to ensure the safety of these incredible mammals.

when is the best time to visit

Beach-goers, kiteboarders and surfers in Sosua and Cabarete can see whales up-close as they migrate past. It’s an amazing experience to watch the whales play and breach. If you’re surfing or kiting outside the reef, you might even be surprised by a whale surfacing only a few feet away! Talk about an encounter you won’t forget!

Here at eXtreme Hotel, we have seen humpback whales swim past Kite Beach six times in the last 10 days. In April! It’s quite a sight to behold!

With humpack whales casually swimming by, eXtreme Hotel is not your average kitesurfing vacation destination.

In Cabarete, you will find there is so much more to see! Come and check out this amazing spot of natural beauty for yourself!
