Response from Eric Tours I, General Manager at Whale Watching in Samana
Responded Mar 12, 2020
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We are sorry you had a bad experience. The whale watching season is short between Mid January until the end of March, so some days it will be a lot of people and a lot of boats. We also offer a private tour when we go with smaller groups and leave very early in the morning so we are one of the first ones there.
