TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - January 20, 2014) - Customers booking with Signature Vacations can enjoy an awe inspiring experience when visiting Los Cabos, Mexico or Samana, Dominican Republic to get a glimpse of hundreds of humpback whales. Between January and March, travellers flock to these destinations to witness these majestic creatures pass through Los Cabos or Samana on their annual migration. 

The Dominican Republic's spectacular Samana Bay is a whale watching haven where thousands of humpback whales return each year to mate and give birth. It is a world-renowned spot where visitors can watch males aggressively compete for the attention of fertile females, and witness mothers nursing young calves. Samana's protected environment lends itself well to eco-tourism, promising that many young calves will flourish, and continue to inhabit these waters for decades to come. By visiting this beautiful land, travellers will not only be adding unforgettable memories to their vacation in the Dominican, they will also be helping protect the future generations of these gorgeous cetaceans through awareness and education.

Should visitors wish to catch whales on the West Coast, Los Cabos is another great whale-watching vantage point. Humpback, grey, and blue whales migrate 10,000 kilometres to spend the winter in Los Cabos looking to escape the cold winter in exchange for tepid temperatures -- similar to Canadians!

Signature Vacations offers incredible deals at beautiful properties near the hub of the whale watching experience. Those looking to venture to lush Samana can stay at the Grand Paradise Samana Resort. Guests experience a serene and tranquil setting, perfect for a relaxing family vacation and a romantic getaway. Visitors will enjoy the charming and traditional decor, beautiful gardens, and the fantastic white sand beach. 

Travellers who choose a Mexican vacation can stay at the sensational Riu Santa Fe in Los Cabos. With a charming, rustic Santa Fe atmosphere, this resort offers 24-hour room service, all-day meals and snacks and a variety of activities and amenities. Signature guests receive exclusive RIU-topia inclusions such as a regularly restocked mini bar, in room liquor dispensers, WiFi access in the lobby and more.
