we signed up with Patricia to see the caves in the national park that included the boat tour of the area, a trip up the river, bird watching and lunch at Paraiso Caño Hondo. We were picked up exactly on time for the bus trip over the mountains from our residence at Las Nomados. Of the some 21 people, most... More

Arena tours uses Whale Samana with Kim Beddall for there whale watching excursions, simply put the best way to go.

Our family went to see the whales in Samana Bay from Las Terrenas and it was 75 USD per person which is quite much for a half day tour I think. In this was no lunch included. Starting off from Las Terrenas at 8 am. it is a little under an hour's drive by minibus to get to the port... More

Your note seems to me a little bit severe Hanko, because all my services were respected: the hour, the boat, the whales.... Even if my English is bad, I always specify you that you have time to have a coffee before giving you the ticket of the boat. Sorry for your impatience. All the best, cordialy Patricia More

I would like to thank Pat for the wonderful time we had on this excursion. She speaks French and English and is very accommodating. She made us feel special. The boat was large and comfortable and had Marine Mammal Specialist Kim Beddall on board. This was an amazing learning experience. Many Humpback whales were spotted and photographed.

Went to see the whales with Patricia from las terrenas. Her tour I think is the only one that does whale watching with Kim from Semana. I chose to go on Wednesday which includes a lunch and swim at Cayo Levantado which is a beach island on the way back from whale watching. Tour started at 7:30 am - you... More

We snorkeled (fish not in abundance) and then a great bbq on the beach with various meats and salads and... More

Patricia organizes a nice tour of the parc.Best is seeing the birdlife. You do not get to go much on land, only for the grottos which fills most of the trip. It is a full day trip and in our case finished with lunch at Cano Hondo (basic buffet). If I could i would have skipped this part and opted... More

Patricia took care of the Francophone guiding, and even though it was just a small group, she still provided an extra guide for the English speakers. Nice views during the boat ride in the park, and finished off by a great meal at Cano Hondo (hhmm that moro!)...

I highly recommend Arena Tours!! Patricia, the owner, made her tours extra special with many extras that make these tours amazing. I took her tour of Las Haitises which included a lunch stop at an Eco Hotel. The food was amazing and the fresh water river winding through the resort was an incredible site to see plus the swimming was... More
