The beaches are beautiful! The service provide also very good meeting all our desires. The tide can be a little bit rough, but the boat captain was great and kept us safe!

Due to the situation with the Coronavirus, our cruise was suddenly cancelled. I contacted Terry and in less than 48 hours we had a full refund. He was friendly, and very understanding. Even though we did not get to experience a tour with him, based on the business dealings alone, I would attempt to go Samana and take a tour.

This was the Best Whale Watching trip ever! We booked in February and so glad we went with Whale Samana. The biologist owner, Kim Beddall, was on board giving the talk and she has worked in Humpback Whale research and conservation for decades. My degree was in Marine Biology and she worked with the same world renowned groups I did in the US, The Center for Coastal Studies in Province town and Allied Whale in Bar Harbor. They participate in the ongoing Humpback Whale studies to track and study the migration of the Whales from their North Atlantic feeding areas to their birthing area around Samana. The scientific narration was engaging to all ages (my kids 10,15) and interesting. What a joy to see my kids awed and engaged for hours with these majestic creatures! There were 4 languages offered on our day and more available if needed. It's a large, clean, safe and sea worthy boat with modern safety features. They even pass out free water, soft drinks and snacks! Kim Beddall is kind and warm and there were 2 additional terrific naturalists and a photographer (for the whale research) and an excellent captain and friendly staff. Kim has worked hard to help set up the Internationally recognized Whale Sanctuary around Samana and develop safe practice rules for tours viewing Whales so as not harass them. if you care about the Whales and people of Smana and want to have fun doing it, this was a great trip you can feel good about. I'm glad we booked ahead because in country we were bombarded by street hawkers trying to sell us a whale watch trip. Most of the other boat trips are pricier than Kim's and the boats are tiny and in very rough shape. One such boat, about 18 feet long was out watching the day we were and it was a windy day and the people on that boat got tossed around a lot and no bathroom. I lived at sea for years but I would not have set foot on one of those rickety buckets. Anyway, it was fantastic and I recommend it most highly and hope to go back for more, thanks! Zan Knecht, PhD

I was scheduled to take a tour with Terry, which I needed to cancel due to the coronavirus. I notified him of my desire to cancel, and almost immediately received a credit back to my credit card. With all of the confusion at present, it was wonderful to have such a clean and efficient response; we will certainly tour with him once able. Thank you.
