    Default Whale Watching

    Would you say that February is a good time to book a room for whale watching? What city would you stay in? Thanks.

    An excellent time for watching whales.
    Your best place is Samaná. They have very organized tours for watching whales. Get in touch with Kim Beddal or Bedall (?) ...you can find references to her in the Search function of these boards.

    She is the best by far.. it is an experience you will never forget.

    Cordially,

    As Hillbilly says. I've been whale watching in Samana three times now and Kim's is by far the best. The website is largely still under construction but there are links for contact details.

    If you are planning on going out more than once then I'd definitely say stay in Samana. If you're only going to do one trip, then anywhere as far of PoP/Sosua/Cabarete is 'do-able' as a day trip, all be it, with an early start (5am ish).

    This shot was taken from a Kim trip last January. I'll go again next January too!

    Thanks for all the information. I can't wait to go. Have seen them in Alaska & it never gets boring.
