They make it a day similar in length to a trip to Saona from Punta Cana or a day trip from Bayahibe to Santo Domingo. It’s about 1.5 hours driving on either side of the day. Once I get on a boat, for me the thrust of the day is then starting so when that happens at the 2 hour point, you have a day of hopeful excitement. I think it would be great to see a different area and to know that you might get lucky and actually have a whale sighting would be fun too. I was going to drive up that way with a friend in July just because it’s so different and relatively close for that opportunity. Didn’t happen so it’s still on my list of things to do…
Take a look and see if it looks worth taking the chance: http://www.seavisbayahibe.com/humpback%20whales.htm
I have a number of pictures of the bay taken from the plane. I’m hoping to see some blowhole action in the water on my arrival in February!
Martina and Werner are still running the guesthouse–with their hands in many other real estate pots that keep them ultra busy. Building their own home too!
