Very Long Boat Ride to Saona Island
, Mar 2022
The Saona Island is beautiful! We spent 2.5 Hours in the beach + 30 minutes in the Natural Pool. Picked up from our Hotel @ 7:30am & back @ 7:30pm (Total of 12 Hours). The travellers should have been provided with this info from the tour description from by the beginning. Hotel pick up by Van to Bus Terminal (30 minutes) >>> Bus with AC[50-60 people] to Emabarkation (1-2 hours including wait time for boat) >>> Boat Ride (1 Hour) to Natural Pool (20 minutes stay) >>> 15 minutes boat ride to Saona Island >>> stay for 2.5 Hours >>> Head back with different slower boat with 80-100 people (3-4 hours) >>> Back to Bus [50-60 people] to Hotel (1-2 Hours). If I knew this ahead of time, I would have just booked a Private Speed Boat for a smaller group.

Good afternoon Mr. Rey, we We have various options for our clients, which includes the VIP service, which is different from the normal one, where the client can go and return by speedboat and have a private lunch on the Island.
Just stay at your resort

Took 5 hours, 2 buses, and 3 boats to even get to the island. They serve no snacks, only rum and a very late lunch almost 7 hours into the excursion. When we finally got to the island, there were ZERO activities, only an extremely rocky and painful beach. The cherry on top was very poor communication/negligence for English speakers and sheer disorganization. The organizers were very insensitive and reckless. By the way - this is NOT an 8 hour excursion, it was over 12 hours. Take your money elsewhere.

So sorry about your bad experience, we are going to supervise the supplier we have right now and trying to improve the service

Not family friendly and organized chaos. Long bus rides with lots of waiting and switching vehicles. Booze cruise, boat ran out of gas, and speed boat flooded and nearly drowned us as we were trying to get off at island. Food was cold and horrible. It was a traumatic experience for my kids. Very scary

This is not for a family with young kids !!! Unless if you want your children to be around a bunch of drunk people including the crew and dancers twerking... Issues: picked up from hotel 40 mins late, boat ran out of gas, bathroom on the boat didn’t work .. I could write more but Viator is limiting

My favorite excursion on our whole trip. From pick up to drop off everything was amazing. The workers on the boat are great they offer drinks and make sure everyone dances and the beach and lunch was beautiful and delicious

The place is beautiful. I recommend it and bring lots of sunscreen. We were staying at Now Larimar and were picked up on time. The only confusion is the transferring of buses. That is the only thing I didn't like. One bus picks you up, they make a stop at a gas station and have you wait there and then another takes you. It was a bit crowded in the bus as well. It's a long trip because of the transportation. Would I do it again probably not. Once is enough. When you get to the Island you will be attacked with people trying to sell you coco oil, massages, and jewels. If you aren't interested in any of that just say it as soon as you get there. We were on the beach for about 2 hours. Please bring cash and tip the people who help you on the boats, very nice people.

About the Tour Company: was very responsible, they picked us up a bit late because a hotel confusion, I was staying at Bahia Principe Fantasia and it is a very large complex with different hotels. About the Tour: It is very beautiful, it was a nice experience. What I did not like was all the people trying to sell you stuff, handmade jewelry, massages, pictures, ect. The beach is a bit rocky.. but after Saona Island they take you to a natural swimming pool, this was my favorite part, is absolutely amazing, water is crystal clear. The bad part is they leave you here for only about 30 minutes, I wish the whole tour was in this area..
