Full description
Saona Island is surrounded by white sand beaches, turquoise clear waters, and countless palm trees. This very inviting atmosphere is perfect for relaxing, which is exactly what you can do throughout your tour. You will first be picked up from your hotel, from where you will travel to Bayahibe. Once on the speed boat, you will travel to Saona Island via the Caribbean Sea. Half-way through the trip you will be granted a 45-minute break at a beautiful natural pool, after which you will continue your journey before arriving to Saona Island where you will have about 3.5 hours to relax. At approximately 2:35PM you will board a beautiful catamaran to return to Bayahibe. Aboard this Catamaran you can enjoy the party atmosphere, and can also choose to dance throughout the approximately 1.5-hour journey. At the conclusion of your day out in the sun, you will be returned back to your accommodation.

Everything went smoothly... from the hotel pick up to the tour to the hotel drop off. Even though we were already on the island, it was worth a trip again. Saona Island is a MUST for every Dominican Republic vacationer. The return trip on the catamaran is a dream! The price for the tour can't be beat. Other guests have paid double through their hotels. Don't book in the hotels. This is rip off! You get the same service via getyourguide. TOP!!!

The trip was well organized, although we traveled to the meeting point in Bayahibe ourselves. Unfortunately, we did not have a speedboat as expected, but the family version with a roof. By the way, we actually discovered a large starfish in the lagoon. Of course we left it lying around and were happy that there were still some left despite the hustle and bustle. But the stay on the dream island was perfect, except for the sanitary conditions. With these daily turnovers, it should be possible to offer clean toilets to visitors. As a man you are pain-free, but for the women... Otherwise everything was great, even the garbage was under control and so the beach and water were uniquely beautiful! Incidentally, the massage prices go down massively with increasing length of stay. The return trip with the cat. with music, rum just pure party. Perfect. Great excursion for our sons aged 19 + 24. Recommended!

The tour with Getyourguide was a great experience. The weather was good too. We were picked up at the meeting point. And the tour was exactly as described. For food there was rice, chicken, fish and salads and vegetables, as well as pasta. Organization was great. Can also recommend it.
