He has been all over the Samaná peninsula and knows all the places with amazing views. With Gerard as your guide you will discover beautiful places that you wouldn't see otherwise.

Each year between January and March, humpback whales come to the warm waters around Las Galeras to mate. It's an excellent time to watch these magnificent mammals in action.
On a typical day-excursion, you're almost guaranteed to see whales. Afterwards, we relax for a few hours on the gorgeous beach of Playa Frontón before heading back to Las Galeras.
In and around Las Galeras there are several beautiful beaches, such as Playa Grande and La Playita. One of the most famous beaches is Playa Rincón, at about 13 km from Las Galeras. It can easily be reached by car in about 25 minutes, but also on bicycle, motorcycle, boat or horseback. It's a picture-perfect beach often used in holiday brochures and calendars.
The serenity and natural beauty of Las Galeras is very inviting for visitors to explore the area on horseback. You can ride along the beach, smell the fragrances of nature and admire the many flowers and plants.
We work together with a local ranch that offers excursions with a low ecological footprint, who tale good care of the horses and speak several languages. The guides are very responsible and the horses well-trained.
Los Haitises National Park is an enchanting place with lots of little islets and a large mangrove forest.
We offer a day-excursion, which allows you to discover a little piece of the park, the mangroves, several caves and a lot of water birds.
In the afternoon a lunch buffet is served on the Cayo Levantado island, where you also have time to relax on the beach.
The warm waters of the Caribbean are a dream for diving and snorkling fans. In the neighborhood of Las Galeras there are plenty of reefs that are home to a variety of fish and other marine life. There is even a sunken ship to be visited.
We work with Las Galeras Divers, a small family business who offers a responsible service all year round.
We assist in rental of motorcycles, cars, bicycles and quad, always in good condition and well-maintained.
