So we’re going several days short of catching the whale watching season. After contacting the better groups who do it all by the book, they said we should still call and see if there will be “adventure” trips. They explained that this meant that they would be going out some days prior to the official season start and making no promises about witnessing the humpbacks. I believe it’s still the same price. It is also a very long drive from Punta Cana, and I was wondering if any of you have taken the pre-season “adventure” trips?
Though I figure it would still be worth the ride to Samana for snorkeling. I’m just very excited about seeing whales. The only whales I see in NYC are fiberglass models in the museum.
And we’re 100% against going to that other place where can swim with dolphins and such. It just seems wrong that they are stuck there and the undocumented way in which they acquire them from the Cuban government.
