Very nice spectacle to see a dozen whales swimming near our boat! Our guide, Rocky, very friendly! Lunch was perfect, 2 hours on Bacardi Island, too bad it is cluttered with rubbish and very damaged deckchairs ... swimming, however, much appreciated! Pick up from our carefree hotel only downside, the promised breakfast was very light ...

A successful day.

Speechless .... great memories, a wonderful 50th birthday that we will never forget. Immerse yourself in secluded coves on Samana, a rustic path to the waterfall, Oscar as a great travel guide and the end on the very touristy island of Levantado fit quite well into the concept. The whales, which we hunted afterwards, I was a little sorry at the end ..... But despite all a successful day !!!! Greetings and thanks to Jumbo
