DR Surf Tours - OVERVIEW
The rugged Northern coastline of the Dominican Republic offers 300 miles of exposure to North Atlantic swells. Fringed with reefs, rivermouths, bays and craggy headlands, the little known area of ‘Amber Coast’ has more waves than surfers to ride them.
Our surf packages in the D.R. are coordinated in conjunction with D.R. Surf Tours and local resident/surfer Allan Landgren. Their high level of personalized service, comfortable accommodations, great uncrowded surf potential combined with over 7 years of experience running surf tours makes this a smart choice for surfers looking to maximize their water time. With two double rooms and one quadruple room, all guests are guaranteed an 8 guest maximum capacity (including non-surfers).
Packages are set for specific dates allowing each group to arrive and depart on the schedule that maximizes surf time each week. Each individual group of 6 or more receives their own surf guide and 4x4 vehicle. The guides are local surfers making them experts at knowing which waves are working best based on the swell, tide, and wind conditions. Your guides will be with you from sunup to sundown and will assist you with anything you need. Smaller groups of 1 or 2 surfers may be paired together but will never exceed a total of 6 per guide and vehicle.
All packages include a bilingual surf guide, air conditioned accommodations, daily maid service, transportation, 3 meals daily with juice, water, milk, tea, coffee included.
The coastal towns of Sosua and Cabarete are a melting pot of European and Dominican culture. Many of the residents have been attracted to the area by the natural beauty, incredible weather and seemingly endless options for action and water sports. The most popular surf spot, Playa Encuentro is located in between the two cities and approximately 10 miles west of the Puerto Plata International Airport.
Playa Encuentro is generally regarded as the most consistent surf spot in the area, but many nearby waves are more powerful and less crowded. In fact, the lack of crowds is one of the best reasons to surf here. With mostly European and Canadian visitors, the Dominican Republic remains relatively unknown to the general surfing population.
