Excursion Saona Island
Due to high demand of our American guests we now offer the Saona Island excursion in English every Wednesday.
Please make your reservation in time because we are fully booked for the next excursions.
This excursion needs a minimum of 15 persons!
We leave early so it's advisable you had breakfast at your hotel/resort.
We travel with an AC-bus over the highway directly to Bayahibe which will take about 1:30hr, no stops at souvenirs-shops!
From Bayahibe we go with a speedboat with 2x 200 BHP to the largest natural swimmingpool where we enjoy a nice swim.
After the visit to the natural pool we cruise alongside the Caribbean coast to one of the most beautiful beaches of the Dominican Republic.
Because this beach is too far to be reached by catamarans we are spared the large amounts of tourists visiting the island.
At this stunning beach we can snorkel above the reefs, swim a little or just relax and enjoy. A small snack, the first drink; pure vacation!
After the beach we go a little back along the coast and visit a typical small fishing-village; Mano Juan.
Here about 70 families still live like in the "old days".
Here is a Sea Turtle Conservation Project and with a little luck (50/50 chance) we'll see newborn turtles.
And along we go to the next beach for lunch.
We reserve a small strand-buffet for our group and we will stay there for about 2 to 2.5 hours.
On the way back, in front of the harbour-entrance, we will snorkel again directly over the coral reef with all kind of fish in different shapes and colors.
Return journey with our bus and at about 6:30pm we will back at the hotel.
This trip is only with a speedboat, not with a catamaran sailboat!
The time we win by going only with a speedboat, we can spend more on the island.
You will receive the mask & snorkel before the trip but you are free to bring your own equipment.
We advise you to protect your camera/smartphone with at least a waterproof cover in case we have some rain.
Our price for adults is US$ 99
(and worth every Penny according to our guests).
Of course everything included!
Children till 7 years for free, from 7 till 13 years 50% discount.
You can make your booking here easily via Internet.
You will receive confirmation of your reservation soon without any down payment, you receive the exact time of departure about 2 days before the excursion takes place when all hotels are determined by Whatsapp or Email.
Payment is in the bus in US$ or the equivalent in Dominican Pesos (US$ 1 is at this moment RD$ 50), credit cards not accpeted but there are ATM's everywhere.
For transport from hotels/resorts in Uvero Alto and Cabeza de Toro we charge US$ 5 per person because we need to send an extra minivan to pick you up and bring you to our bus.
