El Bote

The quickest method of transportation for travelers hoping to visit to get to the Dominican Republic's Samana Peninsula is by way of ferry.

A small ferry, simply named “El Bote” provides transport across Samana Bay on a daily basis, providing passage from Sabana de la Mar to Samana.  The trip takes an hour, which is a a short time in comparison to the eight to 10 hour trip by bus from Santo Domingo.

El Bote leaves Sabana de la Mar at regular intervals: 8:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 3:00 p.m., and 5:00 p.m.  Return trips leave at 7:00 a.m., 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., and 3:00 p.m.
