Full description

We start off at 9 AM from the public beach of Dominicus Americanus via a speedboat or a motomaran and head in the direction of the infamous Saona island. Accompanied by the charming Caribbean rhythms we will have our first stop in the Natural Pools, a huge area of crystal clear naturally formed shallow waters. Here we will have a swim with the gigantic starfish which inhabit the sea bottom. Music, various drinks ant rum will add to the fun and pleasure as we spend around 40 min in this small paradise. Afterwards, on our way out of the Natural Pools we pass by the mangroves’ park and head to the beach on Saona. Once here we will offer you some snacks after which you will be able to enjoy the magnificent private area of the beach dedicated to our clients only (sunbeds provided, free of charge). Our bar will always be open (Coca Cola, Sprite, water, orange juice, coffee, rum, beer, mamajuana) and at your complete disposal as well as our charming photographer Cuchi Cuchi in case you want some professional photographs on the island which you will be able to buy at the end of the excursion. At noon we invite our guests to the private buffet on the beach: grilled chicken, fish, pork, rice, boiled potatoes, seafood paella, bean sauce, mixed vegetables, seafood pasta, beef meatballs, cold pasta salad, bread, vegetables and fruits. Grilled lobster is optional (1 pound) and needs to be reserved beforehand. Next, around 1 PM, we will leave for the mesmerizing wild beach called Canto de la Playa, which is considered to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the whole world. We will drop anchor here when the majority of the companies have already left which will give our clients the opportunity to enjoy this paradise without the mass tourism which occupies this area in the morning. Afterwards, we will head back to Bayahibe stopping once more in the Natural Pools on our way back, this time in a different spot. This is your chance for one last relaxing swim and a drink with our infamous Vitamin R (rum). We will come back to the public beach of  Dominicus Americanus around 5 PM.

Why is tour Saona V.I.P. our absolute BESTSELLER?

What are the main differences between our excursion Saona V.I.P. Canto de la Playa and numerous other seemingly identical tours to this island offered by other agencies or inside the resorts?

Well, let us break them down for you:

  1. The groups we have include only up to 30 people.
  2. We have our own fully equipped private area on the beach reserved for our clients only.
  3. We stop in the natural pool not one, but 2 times, once on our way to the island and once more on our way back.
  4. Our tour has a reversed program, meaning we visit all the famous spots whenever the rest of the groups are still on their way or have already left, giving you the possibility to experience Saona in a more private manner!
  5. We offer the best quality / price ratio: 70$ USD per 1 adult (departure from Bayahibe; extra 10$ if picked up from the hotels in Bayahibe/Dominicus); 100$ USD per 1 adult (departure from Punta Cana); children aged from 5 to 10 years – 50% of the price; those aged from 0 to 4 years go for free (provided they sit on the parent’s lap on the boat).
  6. Multilingual guides: English, Spanish, Italian, German, French, Russian.
