Cabarete Windsurf Adventure
Duration: Half Day
Whilst windsurfing can be practiced all over the Dominican Republic, Cabarete is the premiere spot for this exciting water sport. Enjoy a day of exhilaration and adventure on the Atlantic Ocean as you set sail in one of the most beautiful locations on the North Coast.
Ranked among the 10 best windsurfing spots in the world, the famous laid-back beach town of Cabarete has been on the windsurfing sporting map since the late 80s, and has played host to numerous world-class events. Boasting beautiful scenery and fantastic conditions suitable for every level of sailor, it’s easy to see why this area is so popular. If you are staying in or around Cabarete during your holiday in the Dominican Republic, windsurfing is a must.
This tour will enable you to grab a piece of the action as you venture onto the Caribbean’s sparkling turquoise waters to try the sport for yourself. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of exhilaration and freedom as you skim across the surface of the ocean, using the power of the wind to steer and turn into the waves. You may even pick up some “freestyle” moves from the professionals! If you manage to stay on your board long enough, you can enjoy wonderful views of Cabarete’s beautiful white sandy beach, which stretches two miles along the northern coast and wraps around the wide protected bay.
Windsurfing can be enjoyed all year round due to the Eastern Trade Winds that provide strong and consistent winds across the bay. However, the best months for strong winds are June, July and August. The winds are generally light in the morning and the waters are calm, which provide perfect conditions for beginners and light-wind sailing. Throughout the day the winds pick up, producing waves and high-wind sailing conditions for intermediates and expert levels. The Dominican Republic’s seas are warm all year round (averaging about 26°C) so there's no need to bring your wetsuit.
If you are a beginner, many of the hotels in Cabarete offer their all-inclusive guests a free initiation lesson in windsurfing to get you started. You can rent, store and purchase equipment from various windsurfing schools in the area, which are located in the bay for easy rigging and direct launch from the beach at their site. Further one-to-one lessons and group lessons are also available on request.
