Erictours international Day trips in the Dominican Republic

Whale Watching & Bacardi Island



What’s Included

  • Whale-watching boat ride on Samana Bay
  • Dominican-style buffet lunch on Cayo Levantado
  • Breakfast included after early-morning pickup
  • Round trip transportation





Bacardi island, correct name Cayo Levantado, is possibly the most beautiful place in the whole Dominican Republic and combined with being able to see some of the biggest animals on earth it is an experience of a lifetime.
The whale watching tour takes place every year from mid-January to end March in the beautifully stunning Samana Bay. You are able to see the Humpback whales moving from their arctic home to the protective bay of Samana to mate. You will have a fascinating day, with a breathtaking adventure. From the boat you will watch the Humpback whales as close as possible.
Pick up time is early as the drive from Puerto Plata takes 3.5 hours. Half way down in Cabarera we make a stop for breakfast and washroom. Later in the day on Cayo Levantado, a lunch buffet in typical Dominican Style will refresh you. You will have time to relax and swim and the sandy white beach will let you believe you are in paradise.
The tour is a mix of stunning scenic views and the miracles of sea life.
