    It was very nice coordinated tour. Friendly staff, good food, pretty nice views. We did not see the whale.. just check the season before to buy the ticked. The operator kindly decrease the price.

    Very fun excursion! The guides were great and Bacardi Island was beautiful. Lunch was delicious, and the horseback ride to the waterfall was amazing! Recommend taking Dramamine before the whale watching part of the excursion, but totally worth it.

    Absolutely phenomenal. It's over a decade since I was last here and top of my to do list this time was to re-do a whale watching trip. Our children were thrilled! We saw LOTS of humpback whales. The trip sets off very early, 5am from the hotel so expect tired kids as by the time you've done the bus trip to the boat, then it's a good hour and a half out to see, then approx 30 mins actually with the whales, then about half hour to the (stunning) island of Samana, then some bites to eat and amazing cocktails straight from fresh coconuts through straws... Then all the way back again it's more a 3/4 if the day trip.

    Definitely do it though, you don't regret it!

    The photo taken was one my better half took. That's how close they get - they were leaping about in the water, splashing their tails, the lot 👌🐳

    We are disepointet because of what they promissed us on the website. We only had one hour to whale whatching. And after lunsh. We only got one hour at the bacardi island. We went home at 14:00. On your website, it stands whale wathing 09:00 am to 12:00 noonAnd Bacardi Island util 4.30.
    We tried to show oir guide this. And showed your website. But he didn’t lisent…

    I paid $150 for a whale watching/boating experience plus swimming excursion. I have taken many whale watching excursions in the past and this was the absolute worst. The boat was horrible for $150. It was a very small, dinky boat that was falling apart and stunk of diesel. The diesel smell was so bad that the diesel plus the rocking of the boat, led to over 10 of the 30 people vomiting. After they vomited, the vomit was left there. We were unaware that the benches were not adhered to the wall and my friend, after vomiting off the side of the boat, flew across the room when it flipped over from the rocking and he hit his head. We told two staff about the incident and they just laughed it off. I heard from other people when we were about 20min into the ride that they heard someone complain before the boat took off and they were moved to a nicer boat. I think they try to pass people off on this horrific boat to see who will put up w it. I have to say I do not blame the actual staff but instead whoever is running the excursion bc they r ripping people off and leaving the staff to deal w this nonsense.
