Picked up from resort at 6:50am and dropped off at 7:30pm. Close to 5 hours spent on the bus which was not pleasant. Got into a rain storm on the way to the island on the catamaran and got cold and soaked for about 30 mins. No food until 1:00pm and nothing again till back at resort at 7:30 and... More

This was a wonderful day trip!!!! The bus picks you up from your hotel and takes you to the dock area where you board a speed boat that takes you to the "swimming pool". The water is crystal clear and only about waist deep!! The best part is you have a bartender that brings you drinks while cooling off in... More

Saona Island is a must go beach for people visiting Dominican Republic. We took the Catamaran trip to visit Isla Saona from Punta Cana. The island is beautiful, peaceful and the white sand and coconut trees make it a perfect place for beach lovers...

A fabulous boat ride to this pristine park. It was a terrific way to spend the day. Stopped off at some sand bars and found some starfish. I recommend a visit.

The island is beautiful, peaceful and natural, perfect place to escape noise of touristy mainland or resorts. Plan to stay 2 or more days, if you can. There is a Casa Rural El Paraíso de Saona hotel on the beach in which you can book a room online with 2 meals included in the price with the option to upgrade... More

We booked this tour through Raul at SeaPro at the Sunscape Bavaro Beach. He really helped us out, since the tour I had booked on my own we had to cancel due to the high wind and waves. I was concerned about weather on this tour, but Raul was right, it was calm and amazing. This is one of those... More
