Took a snorkelling trip to the island with Sea Pro Divers. Beautiful place & not as busy as expected. Not much there just a bar & a couple of beach sellers, organised trips have lunch sorted. Natural pools offshore for looking at the starfish

The island is a little bit of paradise! The sand is baby powder fine, white and lots of sea shells. The water is also perfect. I hope they keep this island as is.

We visited Saona as part of a dive trip. This is a truly beautiful island, a real paradise. Our trip started well as we were accompanied by a school of dolphins on our way out. We ate lunch and snorkelled in the fabulous turquoise Caribbean Sea. Photos can't do justice to this paradise island.

We booked the catamaran ride out and speed boat back. Catamaran was fun. I relaxed on the netting and enjoyed the views. My wife relaxed a bit and also danced and partied. There was free run. We landed on the beautiful beach of Saona. Had a nice BBQ lunch. Swam in the warm water. Bought some jewelry (everything is negotiable).... More

Bus takes about 45 minutes to get to the boat pickup point ...keep in mind you may be picking up other people at different hotel locations which can add to the time... More

I highly recommend this excursion. They picked us up at our hotel in the morning. We took an hour-1.5 hour ride to Bayahibe. From there we went on a Catamaran ride for about two hours. They offered us Brugal & Coca Cola, we danced, and had a great time. We stayed at the island for a few hours. Enjoyed a... More

First i must say we booked this tour with Amstar who had a desk in our hotel. Amstar offer two different excursions to Saaona. The first one is a VIP trip that they claim is less people on bigger boats plus you will get Lobster as part of the beach BBQ. this VIP trip costs $135 each. The other excursion... More
