Full description
Your adventure begins with pickup from your hotel, then head towards Bayahibe port where you’ll board your catamaran and set sail to one of the most beautiful islands in the Dominican Republic. Soak up the glorious sunshine while sipping on a selection of drinks and feel immersed in the peaceful tranquility. Upon arrival at Saona Island admire the breathtaking landscape of white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, and towering palm trees. At around 1:30 PM, enjoy a stop for lunch against the stunning Saona Island backdrop. Dine on a delicious meal of salad, rice, and grilled meat and fish, or select the VIP option to enjoy lobster and wine. After lunch you can explore the wild paradise of the island, play a game of volleyball on the beach, take part in a merengue dance lesson, swim in the sea, or simply relax on the sand. On the return journey back to Bayahibe, travel along the picture-perfect coastline of the island. Cool off from the heat with a stop at a local swimming spot, famous for its large amount of colorful starfish. While you swim and float around in the crystal clear water, enjoy a traditional Cuba Libre cocktail — the perfect way to end the day.

The trip was as described. Except for the lobster, there wasn't any. So you pay for something you don't get. You could also order Langosta for 20 or 30 dollars (which is too expensive either way, like a coconut for 200 pesos each, normally you pay 50, but it is also a tourist spot). Thus the booking does not match what is booked.

We were excited! However, you have to realize that something is not for one alone, but touristy. The speedboat ride was perfect because we arrived so quickly at the sandbank and later on the island. At no time did we feel like we were being rushed. The food was great and the lobster really good. Even if the scissors were missing. The return trip with the catamaran was just awesome and the dance performances were really fun. You have to get involved! You can always find something to complain about, but they are usually those who sit in front of the photo wallpaper at home and also find it stupid. It's a great trip, the one time out of the hotel everyday brings out!

A lot of Russian guests and on the boat almost only Russian music. We booked a lobster lunch but there was no lobster. Price-performance ratio in my opinion totally not suitable.
