This was the most memorable part of our DR trip! We woke up around 6 to get ready for the 6:50 bus arrival. It was only a couple minutes late. The tiny little van was uncomfortable but they do transfer you to a larger tour bus with other tour groups. We were a little confused by the drop-off location (literal side of the road), but we were safe. The main tour guide Chaul (cha-up) was great. Funny and knowledgeable. He kept track of a lot of people, which is a hard thing to do. The ride to Bahiybe takes a little while, but he kept it interesting. The speedboat is so fun! Bring water shoes for the rocky water at times. Water is blue and the boat goes fast and flies up a little when it catches a wave. A wild ride! We made some friends while on the boat and talked to them to the island. Saona itself is gorgeous. Yes, they will approach you selling things, but after a No, I was left alone. Please don’t bring anything you’re unwilling to part with. I left my flip flops and sunglasses and they were gone when I went back to my spot on the island. Bring as much cash as you need. Losing those items was a bit sad, but the party boat team did eventually cheer me up. Lots of bachata and rum and coke. No bottled water as advertised, but water in a cooler on the boat. That was really fun! The natural pool is fun too, but I didn’t really like the cost for the photos. The photographer knew how to haggle, for sure, but we never got the price where we wanted. Somehow they kept track of all of us and we were returned to our little van with our original group. Talking to our fellow travelers on the way home helped pass the time. Overall, an amazing day even with the lost items. We recommend!

As others mentioned, it was a long trek to get to the actual trip. Communication was extremely poor. When we had to leave the first shuttle, the driver expected a tip. We traveled for a long time, listening to the tour guide explain in both English and Spanish for everything. The store they stopped at gave us 15 minutes to use the restroom and shop and eat. There were three stalls for women, and multiple buses stopping all at the same time. It was not organized well. We got back on the bus and traveled for another hour, hour and a half. The pools were gorgeous but we didn’t get enough time there, in my opinion. When we got to the island, they don’t prepare you for how much you’ll be pressured to buy. The photographer didn’t give us a choice to take pictures, he just started. And everyone on the island called us cheap for not wanting to buy their jewelry, getting a massage, buying a coconut, buying a pineapple, tipping every single person there. If you didn’t spend $100 on the island, you were insulted in Spanish and called cheap in English. The trip back was nice, although people were again expecting to be tipped. And if you explained you didn’t bring enough cash, they acted insulted and called you cheap. The ride back, stopping at every resort took forever. If you can, I recommend booking through your hotel to save your sanity.

We had a hotel pick up. It was a little late, but no biggie. We stopped on the way to transfer busses. Again, annoying but no biggie. The VIP lobster lunch was not really worth it. But, you do get better booze. So why 5-stars? The excursion itself is excellent! The natural pool, Saona island beautiful! I will definitely do this excursion again. It is definitely a don't miss!

This is a must have trip when you come to the Dominican! It’s so amazing, the water is green / blue, fantastic and beautiful. Our tour guide Pedro, could have had more energy and everyone is trying to sell you something. I have 5 stars because the overall experience was breathtaking! The catamaran was a nice touch as well.

We loved it. We were scared about the pick up, but they have a number and you can send them a message On whatsapp, very easy and they respond instantly. The busride is indeed long (1,5hours) but worth it. Speedboat was very fun, wish they could have gone faster 😂 the time you have in Saona is actually enough. Food was good, not That special. Very good RUM! 😬 the way back was on the catamaran. We had a nice Little party.
