The journey by boat is a mixed process; a bit disingenuous; Srs. Should avoid this tour as the ride and walking, plus crappy lunch is for naive young folk.

The boat ride is about 35 minutes from La Samana. I get sea sick but didn't when we went because the ocean was very calm that day. The boat we were on help over 60 passengers which probably helped.
