Imagine standing on one of the beaches of Samaná, the salty breeze caressing your hair, as you gaze out at the vast blue of the Atlantic Ocean. Suddenly, a massive humpback whale surfaces, its majestic silhouette standing out against the horizon. This is not just a moment; it is an awe-inspiring experience.

Each year, from January to March, the tranquil waters of Samaná Bay become a vibrant stage for one of nature's most spectacular performances: the migration of the humpback whales. These incredible creatures travel thousands of miles to breed and give birth in the warm and sheltered bay. This unique phenomenon offers travelers an opportunity to witness these gentle giants up close.

At the luxurious Cayo Levantado Resort, whale watching is an experience that captivates travelers from around the world, especially those who seek to admire the majesty of the humpback whales. This corner of the Caribbean has become a significant destination during the winter months when thousands of these impressive creatures migrate to the warm and beautiful waters of Samaná Bay to mate and give birth.
