Whale Museum and Nature Center (Museo de la Ballena)

Each year between the months of January and March, some 4,000 humpback whales descend on the cool turquoise waters of Samana Bay. The Whale Museum and Nature Center (Museo de la Ballena), which is part of one of the world’s largest marine sanctuaries, celebrates these ocean giants and offer travelers uninterrupted views for winter whale watching.

A 40-foot humpback skeleton greets travelers arriving at this informative museum, and although most of the descriptions here are written in Spanish, non-fluent visitors can hire a guide or request information in other languages at the museum’s main entrance. The museum serves as a perfect accompaniment to a day spent searching for whales on a ship out at sea, but a stroll through Samana’s Whale Museum and Nature Center requires only about an hour to really see it all.
