Back in February, model Josephine Skriver joined the SI Swim team at hotel Sublime Samana in Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic for her rookie photo shoot. In addition to producing some magical images -- you’ll see them soon! -- Josephine took part in whale-watching excursion as part of SI Swim’s adventure video series,
As luck would have it, Josephine and her fiance, Alexander DeLeon, are whale-watching enthusiasts. The two had recently traveled to Norway to swim with orcas and see the Northern Lights. Dream vacay, or what? The two could probably start a side hustle of whale-watching tours themselves, they are so knowledgeable.
We set sail with Whale Samana on Samana Bay in search of the humpbacks. Our tour was led by animal advocate and conservationist Kim Beddall. Kim certainly had a special relationship with the pod as our boat seemed to attract countless whales, who all showed off their very best breaches. All in all, the day was unforgettable.
If you are thinking about heading to the Dominican Republic, you will not want to miss out on Whale Samana. It is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Book your stay at Sublime Samana and they will arrange this excursion for you!
