Saona is very nice, but we were dealt with quite en masse. The transfer was on time and pleasant, but takes quite a long time (about 2 hours). The catamaran trip and speedboat are a lot of fun, the natural pool is wonderful! a lot of stones and broken shells washed up..It was a bit uncomfortable to walk over them, because the waves were pretty strong...We recommend bathing shoes..All in all a nice tour☆☆☆☆

Great pick-up, transfer okay (but was a very long time with an unnecessary stop for shopping), then waited 1.5 hours until you could get on a speedboat (much too long), unfortunately no German guide as booked! nevertheless it was very nice, food drinks were good and a nice trip back on the catamaran; we were on the road for 11 hours in the end

We can only recommend the trip (couple 30 years). You will be picked up directly from the hotel after the pick-up time via WhatsApp has been easily arranged. On the way to the island with the speedboat you stop again at 2 really nice spots. Snorkels are provided free of charge. They have a great lunch and free Cuba Libre :). Don't worry about the additional options mentioned here. They look a little confusing. This package here (without options) is sufficient. You have about 3 hours stay on the island including a great buffet. No options are turned on during the trip. The absolute highlight was the catamaran trip back. Tip for couples on a honeymoon: you can spontaneously take a photo shoot on the island. Just speak to the photographer. We got really great pictures (about 40). The pictures are then a matter of negotiation. Expects 40 to 60 euros. There was little going on at the end of September.
