The trip was lovely, and the island is great. Lunch was really good. I wanted to see the starfish but unfortunately the starfish moved to the natural pool area and i didn't look for them there. But I'd rather they be healthier and happier than at risk with everyone touching them and causing them to die. The young men operating the boat aren't very good at running the motors in the shallow water, they're going to burn those motors out and one of our little taxi trips to shore in the small boat, almost flipped over. Not the best excursion of this type I've had but not horrible either. It was a very nice day.

The whole experience was good! The last part of the excursion was dispointing (when the drivers of the vans started sending us back and forth, the driver of the van was speeding up and the way driving was very aggressive. Overall, the experience in Saona Island and the catamaran was wonderful. Thank you to Peter (the guide)

We did this trip and overall it was a good experience however, a couple of things meant that it didn’t quite reach very good/ exceptional for us. Our transfers came on time and we were picked up in a nice, large, private taxi. It started off slightly disorderly as we were stood around waiting for a speed boat ride. Eventually I pushed the situation and we were soon moved onto a speed boat. The speed boat was good fun, you’re loaded onto a large speed boat at full capacity, where you stop off in a wonderful natural pool/ shallow blue waters, just before the island. We then moved on and reached the island. The lunch was ok, quite limited but it was what we expected. There is a guy with coconuts who was very nice and charged cheap prices. The island itself and the waters were exceptional and I’d highly recommend. There’s an option for a photoshoot, which we did, however it was very expensive and didn’t expect it to be. The catamaran back was fun and there was singing & dancing.
