Humpback Whales – Exploring Marine Life, Dominican Republic

Share/Bookmark

Humpback whales are a cosmopolitan species, found in most of the world’s oceans. Thousands of humpback whales from the North Atlantic migrate to the waters of the Dominican Republic each winter to mate and give birth. Their most popular winter rendezvous is Silver Bank, the 3,000-square-kilometer reef system approximately 70 miles north east of Puerto Plata. Dominican Republic offers a unique opportunity to observe humpback whales in their natural calving and mating grounds.
