Wonderful guide good English. Saw a few whales great ful for that as I went on 1 in Canada and did not see any. Did there best as rough sea. I did throw up but they decided because of safety and waves to go back to an island where we has a nice lunch and enjoyed a beautiful beach

Patricia and Wilson did a fantastic job showing us around the national park. They were friendly, informative, helpful, and very flexible when we had to deal with an ill child. Wilson switched between German and English and talked about modern DR culture, aboriginal culture, and the natural environment easily. Bird watchers would enjoy this trip! Lunch was yummy.

We took a couple of tours with Arena in January 2017 - El Limón waterfall and Haitises National park. Both tours were a good value, and we had a lovely time. The El Limón tour was way cheaper than other tours offered in town, however, we didn't have much time at the waterfall itself. We went for a quick dip... More

Thank you for your objectivity for the new guide this day there. I make every effort to improve his skills. As for the accompanying persons of the horse for the waterfall, they are not guides, but the owners of the horses who always try to win more... All the best. Patricia More

Arena Tours, and all of the Los Haitistes tour companies, offer a very similar package: a boat ride to the national park, tours of the Taino caves, followed by lunch and swimming at a hotel. That is exactly what we got. Unfortunately, our expectations of this trip were much higher. We were hoping for a knowledgable guide who was familiar... More

I went on 2 tours with Patricia from Arena tours, both were great. The tours are really well organized with guides and translators and well worth going on. I did the whale watch/Bacardi island first then the Las Haitises/Cano Hondo tour. I recommend both.

Me and a friend took the Los Haites boat tour. It was wonderful. The group was huge, but felt small. The majority of the tourists spoke French, only a few of us (3 to be exact) spoke English. The owner was kind enough to have an English speaking woman interpret for us. The tour was very informative and nice. I... More

There are only a few things that happen to you in life that you know will stay with you for ever. One of these was shadowing a group of 6 hump back whales in the Gulf of Samana observing the mating ritual. It consisted of one female, one escort and 4 suitors.
