Saona Island Tour - Air Transat Excursion

Just wondering if anyone has booked the Catamaran package to Saona with Air Transat when they arrived, if so would love to hear your feedback, the cost per person and what was included etc.

Our package out of Vancouver is with Air Transat, we have already booked the tour with Punta Cana Mike and would also like to get out on the water so interested in the catamaran over to Saona.

It's a great trip if you count the bus ride as part of the experience.

Some people think 90 mins in a bus is too much , for the end result. Personaly we enjoyed the ride.

Hopefully you'll get the Speed boat out & the Catamaran back. IMO the best option.

We looked at it, but thought 3 hours of sitting on a bus too much for vacation. We have been spoiled in our other destinations. Having good snorkeling close by

3 hrs is usually a minimum on the busride, on average the Resorts in PC are 80 direct driving minutes away from bayahibe, add to that the stops at the Souvenir Traps on the way there, so a total of just 3 hrs on the road for the roundtrip would be a quicky.
