Visitors can also stand in the water right with the stingrays or put on scuba gear and sit on the floor of the ocean to view the magnificent creatures in their habitat. Some say this is the best of the best experience in the Caribbean.
- Watch Whales Fall In Love: Humpback whales are some of the most magnificent creatures in the world. Each and every year, hundreds and hundreds of humpbacks swim to the Dominican Republic’s Samana Bay, known as a breeding ground for this species. Love is in the air between mid-January and late March offering visitors many opportunities to see a whale-sized love story. This is their mating period and the humpback males are known to sing a courting song to win his lover’s affection which is an awesome sight.
- Take A Picturesque Hike: Those who enjoy a physical challenge with a gorgeous view should hike the Waitukubull National Trail in Dominica during their Caribbean Yacht Tour. This 115-mile trail, known as Nature Island spreads from coast to coast and is broken into 14 different sections. Hikers can take one or two leisurely smaller treks or tackle them all for a breathtaking and memorable experience.
