Meeting with humpbacked whale in Samana bay – video

Every year in the middle of January in the bay of Samana at the North coast of the Dominican Republic comes humpback whales. It got it’s name because of the form of fin on it’s back. They come to Samana to breed and give birth in a warm waters of Atlantic Ocean.These amazing animals can reach up to 18 meters in length with the maximum weight of 48 tons. The newborn wale need about 200 liters of milk and gain approximately 40 kilo per day. In the middle of March whales swim back to north. Being on previous safari that we organized we were able to see mother whale with a baby. Unfortunately we did not have professional cameras with us so we taped it using an i-phone.
