Well since it is Hump day 🐋 😁 went Hump Back whale watching in Dominican Republic! 🐋🇩🇴 This was such a surreal experience. I will admit at first i was kinda worried because the seas were about 5-7 feet (the norm) and we were in this little boat. Our captain ⚓ was very skilled and those worries soon went away after I saw how he maneuvered in the conditions. The ocean here is typically like this. 🌊🌊 what a way to celebrate my parent's 52nd wedding Anniversary 🎉
Who needs Sea World when you can go see these majestic creatures in the wild. The north side of D.R. has the rare distinction of being one of the best locations internationally to observe the Humpback (Megaptera novaengliae). Each winter Humpbacks migrate anywhere from 2000 to 4000 miles, from distant northern feeding grounds in the Gulf of Maine, the east coast of Canada, Greenland and Iceland, to the warm Caribbean water of the Dominican Republic.
Almost the entire North Western Atlantic Humpback whale population spend the winter here.
Nature never ceases to amaze me 💙
Note to self: I really should have gone into marine biology....🤙🙂 #humpday#whalewatching#humpbackwhale#gopro_epic#optoutside#nature#gopro#letsgosomewhere#oceanlove#aquaholic#dominicanrepublic#samana#wanderlust#sealife#goprofamily#underwaterworld#wildandfree#saveourplanet#atlanticocean#forceofnature
