    There's no boat traffic as such between the 2, so your options are:

    1) Join the tour provided by your cruise company
    2) Join a local tour
    3) Hire one of the local boat men to take you there and back.

    If you hire one of the locals, agree on a price before hand and haggle, haggle, haggle.

    Sorry, I didn't answer your other question.
    As far as I remember, there's a beach in Samaná but I've only been there to one of the resorts so I'm not 100% sure. If you don't wanna go to Cayo Levantado, you could hire a driver or take a local bus to Las Terrenas, where there is a very nice beach. It should take 30-40 minutes to get there, one way.
