There you will enjoy a quick breakfast prior to boarding the boat to Samana. Upon arrival at Samana, we will load onto a truck, and head into the countryside to our country ranch where we will enjoy a typical Dominican lunch in this beautiful mountain setting. We'll get on horseback and journey to the renowned, 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. Back at the ranch, we will load onto the trucks once again we descend to Samana Bay to board our whale watching vessel. We'll cruise deep into the bay to whale watch. We will first reach Cayo Levantado, also known as Bacardi Island because of it close resemblance to the beaches Bacardi Rum once used for their famous commercials. Cayo Levantado is nothing short of a tropical oasis - a small island in the middle of the ocean with turquoise waters and white sands.

From Cayo Levantado, the excursion continues, by boat, deeper into the Samana Bay to observe humpback whales. Sightings are incredibly common and the whales are frisky! Enjoy the jumps and playfulness of these incredible creatures, making for unforgettable photographs.
