"Great value for money as you get a speed boat ride, great lunch and unlimited alcohol, catamaran ride back and some time to explore the island."
"This is definitely a must do out of all the excursions."
"Once back on the speedboat we were then advised to look left and right to see the starfish which was quite difficult on a boat going at speed and on which you had to remain seated." See review

Amazing experience! Our tour guide team led by Benjamin were outstanding. Appreciate them for waiting for us since we were a bit late to the puck up point. Nevertheless, the day was incredible. Saona Island is truly a paradize. This is a must tour!
We had a great time on this excursion! The tour guide is hilarious and the provided lunch is delicious! For anyone going, I recommend having snacks, because it is a VERY long day and they only provide lunch at 1pm for food. The “open bar” is only rum and coke but changes to beer, rum, sprite and coke at lunch. They also have fruit punch for kids. I would definitely recommend!
Great experience and well organised for the most part...
Visiting the natural swimming pool was a nice stop off then on to Saona Island. Had a guide called Benjamin who was very informative and helpful.
On Saona island you have plenty of time to enjoy the beach and fresh pina colada in a pineapple 😋😎
Catamaran back more of a party vibe....
A relatively long day as had 50 minute wait after collection for an additional coach to get on but overall very good.
Tip: all prices quoted for extras on the island are US Dollar
We told to meet the driver at 630am at a hotel (we were at an airbnb). We Walked to the hotel and the shuttle didn’t come until 710. I called to see where it was and the person who answered sounded like I woke them up. And he said “we said 710” I have the email that says 630. Made me nervous about how legit the excursión was. Everything after that was amazing! Benjamin and crew were fun and entertaining. The ride to the island and lunch was great too. The party on the way back was fun lots of drinks and dancing :). Would book again.
The tour guide was amazing good energy! Saona is beautiful! Would highly recommend! The reason I didn’t do 5 stars due to pick up times and miss communication we were supposed to get picked up at 6:30am and driver didn’t come til 7:40am. When we called the contact number the tour operator named JOSE was really rude and talking over me as I just wanted to know basic pick up information. Have an actual contact Where you can call and confirm this things. We almost did not go on the trip because of JOSE’s bad attitude! Learn better customer service skills and don’t be so aggressive and disrespectful when people just want to find their pick up times for something they paid your company for!
Very friendly guides who made a lot of effort to create a happy atmosphere even during a long journey (and terrible weather), good food and plenty of drinks provided throughout, the island itself is an absolute paradise.
Benjamin, papi, was extremely fantastic. Made the trip so much better! It was a long day. We were told that we would be picked up at 630am and we’re not picked up until almost 715am. We made it back to our hotel around 645pm. The island was beautiful. Entertainment and drinks were all perfect. Perfect day to see the island!!
