Dominican Republic Yr 2

20 May 2016
We arrived to the Dominion Republic after a 25 hour sail, conditions were good, not too much wind though. We checked in at Casa De Compo Marina, it is a lovely stop, almost resort like. We spent 3 nights here after check in, all the officials came on board, I believe 6 of them, and got there cut of the money, the one thing we feel about the DR is that everyone expects to get a little something. We did our laundry here and got totally taken, we were pretty much scammed, lesson learned.
We left for Isla Catalina; this is a lovely stop we had been here before on vacation, it is really only for tourists and diving just some flea markets and bars, nothing else. We only stayed one night as it was a little rolly. The next day we headed to Boca Chita, we ended up going alongside as there were no pendants on the mooring ball, and you cannot anchor here. The marina is owned by one of the guys that write the guidebooks, it is not a great place but it is a good spot to leave your boat for hurricane season, our friends on Amelia, left here and flew home for 4-5 months. We did go ashore and have a look around, but it was a bit sketchy and was constantly hustled by the vendors. We did find a shop at the top of the hill and the lady was very lovely in getting us some supplies that we needed.
We had made a decision to leave here and go to Selina’s but trying to get a despatcho is a bit of a pain, so we headed out to the Bay of Eagles for our jump to Haiti, this took us 26 hours of motor/sailing. This is a lovely place to stop beautiful beaches and a few fishermen. We were the only cruising boat there, but to our amazement we saw a mother and calf Ora’s, “KILLER WHALES”.
