    Great day out, chilled, relaxing, lovely island. Good cruise to the natural pool, then onto saona island. nice to sit on the boat n relax in sun with rum n coke! Music and dancing if that's ur thing, good vibes. BBQ lunch was ok, had just over couple of hours on island so not too rushed but time went quickly tho, nice walk along beach and in the carribean sea, that's what the trip was about and had enough time to take in the beach and shores. We went with nexus tours, the tour guide Mel (Gibson....as he joked) was really good and certainly, speaks more languages than I have fingers and made the bus journey informative, definitely had his work cut out for the day getting everyone in taxi boats to the catermeran, there are sooooo many other tours to contend with on the shores. Its a shame a taxi slot wasn't set aside as we spent prob 1 hour of the day waiting for taxi boats which would have been better spent on the island. Maybe a private tour would have been beneficial here as this should take away the waiting around time. We spent appx 2 hrs travelling either end of the day by bus picking everyone up. That's the only thing that let this day out down a little, all the waiting around, we sat for 45 mins in downtown area before everyone was boarded the main bus. Not quite as exclusive an island as i was expecting and 5hours (appx) of the day was spent travelling/waiting but still worth it for a day out.

    Not what I expected. First of all the whole.trip to the island was by motor. The sail was opened but not powering the boat. The sail was patched in multiple places and looked like it was falling apart. Only one leg of the trip was on the catamaran. Trip back was using a motor boat. On the island there were beach chairs and we were constantly being harassed by vendors. Really not much than staying at the hotel. Overall an average experience.

    Nous avons passé la journée pour une excursion sur l'île de Saona en famille. Nous avons passé un agréable moment. Nous avons toutu d'abord nagé dans une piscine naturelle puis sur le trajet nous avons pu apercevoir une tortue de mer et des étoiles de mer. Une fois arrivés sur l'île nous avons eu droit à un cocktail dans un ananas qui était délicieux. Nous avons fait escale sur une petite ville de pêcheur, à mon goût qui manquait un peu de temps nous avions eu que 30 minutes. Et pour finir on a passé l'après midi sur une plage paradisiaque avec dégustation de langoustes et relaxation sur transat. Des dominicaines vous proposent gentiment leurs services pour un massage sur la plage qui reste très abordable (20€=30 minutes) Puis pour terminer nous sommes rentrés en catamaran (1h30 de trajet) où vous pouvez danser et boire de la "vitamine" à volonté Mention spéciale pour l'accompagnatrice Charlotte qui a été très gentille et très disponible lors de l'excursion. Une bonne humeur et une joie flottait sur le bateau, elle a su mettre l'ambiance en nous faisant danser et nous avons passé un très bon moment.

    Una bellissima giornata in catamarano all'isola di Saona programmata con l'agenzia Ital Cruise a Bayahibe vicino al villaggio viva dominicus, molto organizzati con tutti i tours a bayahibe e dintorni, grazie mille per la bellissima esperienza a Saona.

    Nach einem Telefonat wurde ich am Hafen abgeholt und zum Ausgangspunkt gebracht. Netter Kontakt, guter Service gerne wieder. Wobei als Schiffsreisender kann ich die Tour auch über das Schiff buchen was die Abwicklung vereinfacht. Was etwas nervig ist dass man sich wie auf einer Butterfahrt vorkommt. Zuerst Fotografen, auf der Insel Hummer u. Souvenirs zu kaufen, Massage etc.

    Alles verlief reibungslos. Wir wurden pünktlich am Hotel abgeholt und hatten somit einen privaten Taxifahrer. Am Hafen angekommen wurden wir nett empfangen, haben unser Bändchen bekommen und schon ging es los auf das Schnellboot. Der Guide beherrschte etliche Sprachen, so dass für jeden was dabei war. Zuerst haben wir einen Stopp zum Schnorcheln gemacht. Danach ging es zu dem "natürlichen Swimmingpool", vergleichbar mit einer Art Sandbank. Hier haben wir uns ca. 40 Minuten aufgehalten. Wir konnten Fotos machen und durften an der open Bar so viel trinken, wie uns lieb war. Zu guter Letzt ging es dann Richtung Saona Island. Traumhafter Ort! Der Strand wunderschön, die Verpflegung (Essen und Trinken so viel wie man wollte), war top! Leider ging die Zeit viel zu schnell um. Um 14:30 Uhr ging es dann zurück, dieses mal mit dem Katamaran. Es herrschte eine super Stimmung auf dem Boot. Auch hier wieder open Bar. Ich kann es nur weiterempfehlen!

    Der Katamaran für die 1 1/2h Fahrt war mit ca 50 Leuten völlig überbelegt. Ich habe die Tour 2017 bereits gemacht und da war das Boot 3x so groß und so wie auf den Bildern. Jetzt ein alter kleiner Kahn, völlig abgerockt und ungemütlich. Es hat auch gewaltig geschaukelt auf der Nussschale. Auf der Insel angekommen gab es nichts mehr zu essen, (Nur Reste und Reis sowie Nudeln ohne Beilage) der klapperige Katamaran war einfach zu lahm. Der Inselaufenthalt und die Speedboot-Rückfahrt waren toll und schön.

    Most companies sell this trip way overpriced, let alone hotels. I've seen up to USD 120 per person for this day trip. We paid less than USD 80 (4000 DOP) for the whole family (2 adults and 2 small children) by going to Bayahibe port directly and dealing with the first tout that appears. And this included the entry fee to the natural reserve (500 DOP per adult). The service is exactly the same, we got on one of the catamarans together with all the folks from the hotels in Bayahibe and Punta Cana. Of course this way you need to get to the port by your own means. Starting with a low price and haggling a bit in Spanish can get you a good deal. The trip itself is really nice. Even if you are staying in Punta Cana with its already nice beaches, Isla Saona has such a stunning beach you can only see on postcards. The catamaran is slow, it took us more than 3 hours, but it's fun with all the ambiance and drinks. Sometimes you can spot dolphins and flying fish if you're lucky. The trip back by speedboat is faster but there is a half an hour stop at Piscina Natural which is a nice sand bank out in the sea. All in all recommended if you get a good deal.

    We booked a day trip at the Sheraton Santo Domingo. We were told to show up in the Zona Colonial at 6:30am. The guide showed up at 7 am and we hopped on a bus. The bus was comfortable by not recent by any standard. We stopped on the way to pick some people and at a rest stop for 15 min. The travel agent told us breakfast was served on the bus but that was not the case. So not knowing this we did not buy food or water. Nothing was provided on the bus. We then proceeded to another stop to pick up more people. All said it took about 3 hours to get to where the boats for the island leave. All I can say is if you do not like crowds you should stay a away. Boarding was chaotic to say the least. It looked like a bus station with loads of people boarding the boats. We boarded what we thought was a fast boat only to be transferred on a catamaran. The boat was loaded with people and crying kids. No food just cheap rum with coke or sprite. Music and dancing on board made the ride somewhat fun. It took about 90 min to get to the island. Ok this was the best part as far as the trip. Very nice beach with nice water but again if you don’t like crowds you will not like this. By crowds I mean real crowds. The food line for the buffet was long and only chicken and some sort of fish and pasta was available. The drinks on the island are cheap rum no ice by the way with coke or sprite and beer. Then after 2:30 hours they rounded up the cattle for the trip back. We returned on the fast boat with a stop on an area with shallow water. We got back to the bus at around 5:45 pm. The bus ride back took 3:15 min with numerous stop. So all in all 6 1/2 hours for a 6 hours excursion. All in all it was nice to see the island but it makes for a very long day and I suggest you bring your own breakfast and snacks with water specially if you are going with kids. Probably would not do it again.
