Full description
Head out from La Romana by catamaran on this 12-hour excursion and spend a relaxing day on a tropical island. Relax on Saona Island’s beach, explore the nature preserve and enjoy snorkeling in the crystal-clear waters.

Set sail for the short journey to Saona Island. Stop at a natural ocean pool for a quick swim along the way and then enjoy a lunch buffet after you arrive at the island, complete with a selection of local drinks and beer.

After lunch, explore the protected nature preserve, known for its deserted island feel, or find a spot near the water to relax on a chaise lounge. Natural sandbars just offshore create the perfect environment to explore the waist-deep ocean waters and you can grab a snorkel and mask to check out the fields of starfish.

At the end of your time on the island, board the catamaran for the return trip to the mainland, where a waiting bus takes you back to your Santo Domingo hotel.
