Going Bayahibe next month and will stay in hotel Catalonia Gran Dominicus for 7 days. we gonna spent 4-5 days to finish PADI open water diver course. that give us only one day left to have the island excursion. did a bit research and found out there are some companies offer 2 islands tour, including Seavis, Pro excursions, Santo Domingo vacation d'elite, Scubafun and Coral point diving. other companies ether not speak English or too expensive, so I dont border. Also on seavis' website I found out Catalinita is recently ban to enter. but only on Seavi but not other company's website. Is it real? any idea when it will open again? or if its not possible we will have to take Saona excursion.
for Saona island, I think the most beautiful part for sure is Canto de la Playa. I am sure all four companies I found except Coral point diving go Canto de la Playa. and here is the little info I found.
Pro excursions: $99.USD LOBSTER no alcoholic
Seavis: $80 + $10 lobster no alcoholic
Coral point diving: $80 no alcoholic
Santo domingo vacation d'elite: $75 lobster alcoholic
anybody has the experience with them? Seems Santo domingo vacation d'elite is the best C/P I can find. are they ok? thanks.
