Samana Bay Tours

Samana Bay
Samana Bay is the heart of the Samana region in the far northeast of the Dominica Republic. Along its shores, you’ll find the famed Los Haitises National Park, protected tropical forest where you can explore caverns adorned with native Taino petroglyphs, spectacular tree covered islets, and idyllic mangrove lagoons. The bay itself is also a popular attraction for divers and snorkelers, and during the winter months it becomes a gathering point for migrating humpback whales, which come here from cooler climes to mate and birth their calves. During this time, whale watching tours practically guarantee sightings of these massive marine mammals as the jump and play at the water’s surface.

Practical Info

Samana Bay is the largest bay in the Dominica Republic, with dozens of towns and villages lining its shores. The city of Samana is the largest and most common jumping off point for adventures in and around the bay.
Address: Samana, Dominican Republic
