What to expect on a Fathom Cruise to the Dominican Republic
There is no end to the excursions you can take, whether you book directly through Fathom Travel or on your own with an outside supplier.
Snorkeling. Diving under the clear blue waters of the Caribbean is just one of the joys of traveling to the Dominican Republic. You can power snorkel or book a catamaran tour directly through Fathom Travel with Wild Play Adventure company. Guides will bring you to at least two different dive sights, where you will see tropical fish, sea urchins and even fire coral (don’t touch!). All of the snorkeling trips take place in Sosua, about an hour away from Amber Cove. If you want to rent a car or hire a taxi to take you to this bustling beach town, you will get to see a lot more of the town than if you take a tour.
27 Waterfalls of Rio Damajagua. When you want to do something truly unique, you book a 27 Waterfalls of Rio Damajagua tour with Iguana Mamas. You can hike either 12 or all 27 waterfalls, depending on the amount of time you have. You will jump, slide and walk through the waterfalls, depending on the height and depth of each pool you come to. It is worth the price to book a tour, which includes getting picked up from just outside of Amber Cove, taken to the waterfalls, given lunch and Cuba Libres (rum and coke) after you conquer the waterfalls, and are driven back to port. Trying to get to the waterfalls on your own can be tricky and expensive if you don’t rent a car for the day.
Many thanks to Fathom Travel for providing me with a complimentary cruise to the Dominican Republic. As always, my opinions are my own. When they aren’t, you will be the first to know.
