Booked online before I travelled and had a lot of questions (due to young children) which were answered by Kat who was really helpful. The tour itself was great. We saw lots of whales and the crew and tour guide, Alexis, were all really good. Would definitely recommend this.

CHECK OUT WHAT OUT GUESTS ARE SAYING
After having been on various full day excursions I would have to say that the Humpback Whale Watching Excursion in Punta Cana was by far the best and most complete in all aspects! You get to see these incredible creatures up close, learn about the Dominican culture and relax in paradise at Bacardi Island.
During our whale watching tour we found a mother and a calf almost immediately. Took a while to get out of turn, but we really like the rules in place to protect the humpback whales. All in all it was a great tour. We enjoyed it.
