Catamaran Bayahibe Dominican Republic

This day-long sailing excursion hugs the island’s picturesque shoreline and boasts plenty of stops for adventure. Two are for snorkeling in the crystalline sea; another promises lunch aboard after dropping anchor at sheltered Sosúa Bay, surrounded by jagged rock cliffs. Along the way, there are glimpses of hidden beaches and coves as well as marine wildlife—and, of course, there’s time to sip sweet rum cocktails and groove to merengue music onboard.
