Our group had so much fun on this excursion. We took a 2 hours catamaran to saona island. They played lots of music and fed us lots of rum. Once we got there they had a lunch buffet which was amazing and then 2 hours to swim in the Caribbean ocean. Once that was up, we took a speed boat... More

A very nice way to spend the day, and I mean all day, on an excursion in the DR. The crystal blue waters are a must see and the beach on the island is wonderful. They provide a decent beach buffett and of course cheap rum and beer with lots of shade and lounge chairs to relax. The bus ride... More

We booked the tour on the advice of another couple who had been there, and it was everything they said it would be. Beautiful beach, with gorgeous coconut trees and the blue Caribbean water. Lunch was good, catamaran was great, and the speedboat ride back was a hoot. I will mention that our bus arrived after the boat had left,... More

What a beautiful sun soaked, lush green paradise. The beaches are pristine white sand that reach out to aquamarine and crystal clear blue water. Gorgeous place to visit and I highly recommend taking an excursion out to the island to experience all it has to offer.

I had stopped on the island from a diving trip in January. It is a secluded area and the scenery and waters are beautiful. Many watercraft passed the island while we were there. It is a beautiful location and two helicopters landed by the beach while we visited. It is a area that is worth visiting since I was lodged... More

I even enjoyed the bus ride from the hotel to the small fishing town where we boarded the catamaran. I got to see the land, the people, and how life in the Dominican is lived. Once in the small fishing town we were approached by vendors, and people trying to sell things of course; however, no one was pushy. If... More

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
