“Whales with Kim”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Whale watching with Kim Bedall was fantastic. I highly recommend this tour. Kim is Canadian and has a very safe and large boat for whale watching. Her company is dedicated to protecting the whales in Samana and around the world. Awesome staff

“Whale Watching arranged by Happy Harry the GO TO Guy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Happy Harry arranged a trip on a whale watching ship to this wonderful part of the Dominican. It was still a bit early in the season we were told. Only 4 or 5 whales in the bay but they definitely were coming in.. Now in beginning of February there will be closer to hundred for calving season, Our captain took us to where the other boats were and sure nuff we saw a mom and baby swiming It was a gorgeous sight. After about and hour the Captain pulled away from the other boats. Finally he slowed down again no other boats in sight and we waited again. Then all of a sudden not more than 50 ft from the boat we saw 2 of them JUMPING right out of the water. Incredible! What an experience! 5 times within 50 - 150 ft INCREDIBLE! Thank you Happy Harry for arranging this trip.
