Fathom, Carnival Corporation & plc’s new social impact travel brand, has developed a series of leisure and sightseeing activities for guests sailing on its seven-night voluntourism voyages to the Dominican Republic.

Travellers visiting the Dominican Republic can customise their trip to include a variety of recreational activities and social impact experiences, including projects focused on educational, environmental and economic development.

“At Fathom we are creating purpose-driven impact experiences for our travellers that will make a lasting difference in the lives and the communities in the in the Dominican Republic,” said Tara Russell, president of Fathom and global impact lead for Carnival Corporation. “While at the same time, we want our travelers to know there also are many opportunities for them to explore, unwind and recharge during their free time.”

Fathom’s Adonia will dock at the recently opened Amber Cove located in the Puerto Plata region where travelers will have access to select Amber Cove shore excursions. The port will offer numerous sea and landside experiences, including several beach getaways; kayak, paddle board and snorkeling tours; terracross buggy expeditions; Puerto Plata tours; helicopter rides; fishing trips; horseback riding; and catamaran sailings.

Adventurous guests can also opt for a beginner scuba diving course, a day sailing onboard a catamaran and snorkeling on two reefs in Sosua Bay, or a ‘Countryside Zipline Adventure’ between various treetop platforms.

Other highlights include the ‘ Traditions and Local Flavors’ activity, which enables travellers to head to Puerto Plata’s downtown area to explore the historical sites, shops, artist studios, rum and cigar factories, and the Malecon, a three-mile-long open air beachside boardwalk with restaurants and shops. Alternatively, travellers can enjoy the ‘La Isabela, Columbus History and Folklore’ tour to visit La Isabela, one of the first European towns in the Americas, and learn about the Dominican Republic’s history and its first inhabitants.
