Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your guide at your Punta Cana hotel for the scenic trip to the Samana Peninsula. Board a safari style truck for a countryside ranch, where you’ll greet your traditional-style ride: a friendly Dominican horse. Follow your guide on horseback to picturesque El Limon Waterfall in Cayo Levantado, the perfect place to cool off in the water before sitting down to a classic Dominican lunch.

After your meal, continue to Samana Bay for a whale watching experience. This sheltered, tropical bay is a natural calving and mating ground for humpback whales, which migrate to the coast in thousands during breeding season.

Watch for male whales tracking females, see mothers caring for their calves and spot them competing in showy displays. Listen for the deep, low blast that signals a dive, and keep your camera at the ready during this portion of the trip, as the humpback whales commonly slap their giant fins against the water, sometimes breaching dramatically. Finish the day with return transfer to your Punta Cana hotel.
