Wildlife Encounters in Dominican Republic with Elegant Resorts


Listening to the male Humpback’s solitary courting song is a spellbinding experience, one you can witness along with extraordinary acrobatic displays of lobtailing and breaching high out of the water then crashing loudly back down. This country is one of the best for unforgettable whale-watching encounters.

The season lasts from January to March, when the Silver Banks Humpback Whale Sanctuary at Samana Bay becomes a gathering place for 5,000 huge, graceful creatures. Leaving the cold seas of the north behind and following a well-known migratory path, they come to the region in search of warm waters to mate and give birth to their calves. An incredible natural phenomenon just a short distance from our featured resort, Amanera.

Scuba-diving and snorkelling are other ways to get up close to lots of other fascinating marine life. Look out for dolphins, barracudas, groupers and huge shoals of brightly coloured fish. Visibility is good, the waters are warm and the wrecks, caverns, walls and reefs offer beginner and advanced dive sites packed with tropical undersea wildlife. Aficionados will be wowed by the stunning inland lake and freshwater cave-diving at nearby Cabrera, with its dazzling light displays. Otherwise, opt for a guided trek through the resort’s landside neighbour, over 400 acres of protected nature reserve awash with amazing flora and fauna.

Ocean on one side, jungle on the other – Amanera has been naturally blessed with a truly divine setting, one that you can now enjoy with Elegant Resorts!
