What To Expect
You will be picked up at your hotel in Punta Cana and driven to Punta Cana airport. A private plane will take you from Punta Cana Airport to Arroyo Barril Airport in Samana. Samana's peninsula is located in the northeast region of the Dominican Republic and boasts a mix of beautiful virgin beaches and lush forests with a terrain that is about 70% mountainous.
After landing, your safari trucks will be waiting for you as we immediately venture into Samana's mountainous countryside to a country ranch. There, we'll get on horseback and journey to the renowne, Limon Waterfall. Nestled deep in the forests of Samana, El Limon is an unforgettable site with waters crashing down 170 feet from a mountain river above accessible by a steep stairway.
Back at the ranch, delight yourself with a typical Dominican lunch served in a beautiful mountain setting.
Then we'll enjoy a truck ride to Samana Bay to board our whale watching vessel.
Every year thousands of Humpback Whales start their journey from the cold waters in the North Atlantic to the Caribbean. More than 1500 of them visit Samana Bay. There are about 300 Humpback Whales at any time during the Whale Season that goes from mid January to the end of March! The World Wildlife Fund considers the Bay of Samana as one of the best places in the world to watch the Whales.
We'll cruise deep into the bay for a once-in-a-lifetime experience! See how the humpback whales do tons of stuff right on the water's surface! It's incredibly common to see pectoral fin slaps and tail slaps, as the whales use their flukes that weigh up to 8000 pounds. There's also an excellent chance you'll see a whale breach, the most sought-after humpback whale photo op!
After that you'll be taken to the airport for your flight back to Punta Cana.
