Travel by plane to see the Whales of Semana, and have the whole day to spend whale watching, riding on horseback through tropical forest, and cooling off at the imposing Limón waterfall. Visit Cayo Levantado Island for a swim and a gourmet lunch as well.
What to Expect
Get ready for a once in a lifetime experience on this day trip from Punta Cana. You’ll be greeted by the majestic presence of humpback whales in the open waters of Samana Bay.
The Dominican Republic boasts one of the largest and best humpback breeding sanctuaries in the world. Every year, more than 4,000 whales visit the Bay of Samana for the purpose of breeding. Your knowledgeable English-speaking host and tour guide will tell you all about the habits of these magnificent creatures.
There’s more! Enjoy a short horseback ride in tropical forest on a trail that follows along the River Arroyo Chico. The trail ultimately leads to the picturesque Limón waterfall.
The waterfall is an impressive 165-foot cascade of fresh water, right in the middle of the jungle. Stop for a splash in the refreshing waters of the lagoon at the base of the waterfall.
Cayo Levantado Island is next, where you’ll have a delicious gourmet lunch and a panoramic view of the Bay of Semana. Enjoy the white sandy beaches and the warm turquoise waters of this unique and relaxing place. Relax and enjoy your favorite cocktail on the beach.
