Samana Cruises, Dominican Republic
- Head out on a boat and see if you can spot some whales. The Dominican Republic’s home to two humpback whale breeding grounds, so you’ve got a good chance of seeing something.
- Take a stroll along the Samana walking bridges. These walkways jut out over the sea, and offer the best views of the port and town waterfront.
- Zip-line through the rainforest in El Limón. The area’s been left to its own devices here, so you’ll get a real taste of the wilderness while whizzing over the treetops.

This open-air safari truck tour is a real adventure. You’ll trundle down bumpy tracks, through small villages and around jungle-like vegetation. Your first stop is a Dominican farm where fruits, coconut, chocolate and coffee are grown – where you’ll learn all about how they’re cultivated and prepared for market. Next up is Playa El Valle, a prime stretch of desert island sand. And, finally, you’ll call in on La Cascada El Valle. As the name suggests, this is a beautiful cascade waterfall with a plunge pool at the bottom. Here you’ll just have time for a quick dip before you hit the road back to the ship.
