Baleària plans to open a new ferry route between San Pedro de Macorís (Dominican Republic) and Mayagüez (Puerto Rico) after summer 2024.
- Distance 133 miles.
- 7 hours crossing.
- Plan to build a terminal in the port of San Pedro de Macorís and adapt the one in Mayagüez.
- Possibly first LNG-powered ferry in the Caribbean.
Baleària has been operating in the Caribbean since 2011, where it currently connects the Fort Lauderdale with the Bahamian islands of Grand Bahama and Bimini.
This new service will be Baleària’s third route in the Caribbean and its sixth internationally.
