Between January and March between three and five thousand Humpback whales visit the warm waters of the Bahía de Samaná to mate or to give birth. The males are the playful ones, showing off to the ladies, who, when with calf, can be unbelievably big, and behave with the according lady-like grace. It's truly a sight to behold.

Bahía de Samaná is a protected whale sanctuary so those taking visitors out for a closer look are under strict guidelines to respect the whale's space, but if you visit between the 15th of Jan and the 15th of Feb you shouldn't be disappointed as this really is as a whale conference must look like.
