Whale Watching in Samaná

Between 6 and 6.30 am we'll pick you up from your hotel in Punta Cana and head to the Miches port, and once in the dock, we'll embark on a boat to begin our search for humpback whales along Samaná bay.

We'll head to the humpback whale sanctuary area to learn about the behavior of this majestic species. Did you know that they can dive up to a depth of 200 meters? It won't take long to watch them come to the surface performing elegant and acrobatic spins or tuning courting songs of the humpback whales looking for a mate.

Then, we'll set course again to Samaná and hop off the boat to head to a traditional house to learn all about the process of making the delicious coffee and cocoa of the Dominican Republic, considered some of the best in the world.

After this visit, we'll go to a farm where we can ride horses to tour through the jungle. On this adventure, we'll discover the endemic species of the area and we will see the impressive El Limón waterfall, a 50-meter high waterfall with turquoise pools of water. Anyone feeling hot? You can jump into the water for a swim to get refreshed.

Once we finish our intrepid horse ride, we'll head back to Samaná once more to enjoy a buffet lunch comprised of fish, rice, and beans.

With our energy stores refilled, we'll visit the paradisiacal islet of Cayo Levantado. In this idyllic place, we will have a delicious piña colada while admiring the tropical waters.

Lastly we'll head back to Punta Cana. The arrival at your hotel is scheduled between 7 and 7.30 pm.
