Kim doesn’t provide transportation for any of her world famous tours. She has to concentrate on the Whales! We also give you ability to pay with a credit card or PayPal which is not possible otherwise. So we provide pickup and drop off from all Hotels, AirBnBs & Accommodations because Kim doesn’t.

You may get wet, so dress appropriately and bring a towel. Ride may be rough at times and we recommend you take sea sickness medication if you are susceptible.

Rules:
There are some rules for Whale Watching that must be obeyed by each boat. Only 3 boats can be on a pod of whales at a time so we’ll have to wait our turn upon arrival. Once you see whales you will have about 30-45 min before the law requires us to move along. Kim usually moves along to other whales and you end up possibly spending more than the normal time seeing whales within the time schedule for her later tours.

After the Whales:

After your trip on Kim’s boat you may have an hour or two to wander around Samana depending on our tour schedule that day.

Please print out the PDF when you purchase. Kim uses the Main Dock on the Map in the PDF.

If it will be necessary for your to wait for other tours to return
We recommend eating at Taberna Mediterrenaea, #1 under restaurants on the map.
El Timon Restaurant is right in front of Kim’s office and is a good place also.

Meet at our office at the time the driver and guide tell you and you’ll be on your way back to your resort. If you arrive at our place early, have a seat and use our WiFi for free and enjoy cold $1 beers.


Important Note Regarding Kim's Guarantee

Kim offers a guarantee that you will see the whales. If you don't see them you are welcome to come back on a day when she has room for you. We are happy to work with you if you do not see whales but in order for us to do so we must be able to coordinate your make up trip to see the whales so that it falls on a day when we have other people, from the same area as you, already going on Kim's tour. Unfortunately we cannot come to pick you up only. We are sorry about this policy but it's the best we can do. Kim makes many trips with empty seats available for you and we do the same with our open seats on transportation that we have already going for her tours.
