COVID-19 Lockdown and Sailing Samana, Dominican Republic | Sailing Balachandra E059

In this video, COVID-19 Lockdown and Sailing Samana, Dominican Republic, we sail from Luperon to Samana Dominican Republic and enjoy a few days checking out the local scene before the country goes in to a COVID-19 lockdown, closing the boarders so we can’t leave for 2 weeks. During this time they allowed us to visit the National Park of Las Haitises in the Bahia de San Lorenzo area of Samana Bay. This park is famous for the filming of Jurassic Park and Pirates of the Caribbean. We do some hiking trails and explore some ancient caves complete with cave art drawings. Amazing! #lockdown #covid19 #coronavirus #liveaboard #sailingchannel #traveladventure

Special thanks once more to our friends Timmies Run, for sharing their drone footage – Thanks Brian and Nath! 🙂

In August of 2017 I sold everything and moved aboard Balachandra, a 1986 C&C44 sailboat, then sailed it over 300 nautical miles to Halifax Nova Scotia to spend a cold Canadian winter in the frozen waters of the North Atlantic. Sailing Balachandra is our YouTube sailing vlog inspired by other great channels such as Delos and La Vagabonde, which documents the sailing adventures of myself and my partner Nawal as we navigate the globe. We also dive into lots of DIY boat projects both above and below decks, and share with you all of the pros and cons of living aboard. Sailing Balachandra is published weekly so please subscribe so you don’t miss out on future videos!
