Go if you want the catamaran ride but not for anything else.
Sep 2021
Most of the trip is the catamaran ride. The food was very basic rice, overcooked pasta, and the “Lobster” was display only. The shells of the lobster appeared in the spaghetti noodles but the lobster meat was no where to be found. I suggest bringing a small cooler with your own drinks and snacks, a towel, water proof bag for your items and phone. Have your swimsuits on when picked up and bring a change of clothes for trip home. No breakfast or dinner is provided, only the low quality buffet lunch. Everyone was friendly and helpful but take this trip if you want a boat ride because that is much of the trip (along with getting there by small bus). Our driver arrived promptly to my friends home at 6:15am, then we picked up two more passengers and went on the long drive (about 1.5 hours) before departing on the first boat, to then transfer to a large catamaran. If going back, I would have just taken a trip to a private beach instead. There is really nothing to see on Saona Island except what might be some wild but friendly dogs and something that smelled like sewage or rotting food (when near the picnic area). The water is gorgeous and the beach is beautiful. No part of the trip is handicap accessible and not for anyone with balance issues. Overall I was glad I took the trip but would not likely do it again.

Great day
Everything was perfect except for 2 issues ( which cant blame tour company, not their fault all in boat staff) i was like the only one who needed English translation , and when getting off catamaran they never did english explaining (if i wouldnt have flagged down my guide n reminded him i would have not known departure was at 3pm - food i just followed everyone (no biggie) but he gave this info too. Worst thing was in the catamaran the guys came around handing out Dominican Republic doo rags(hats) (guy asked me in english would you like one when he came to me(after he found i spoke no Spanish), then 10ish minutes later another guy (finding i knew English) wanted money for the hat. No one said they weren’t free cuz they put em on everyone, after saying i wasn’t gonna pay he just out his hand out for hat back. Why u gonna put it on someone and not let them know its not free. Felt this sales tactic sooo tacky n unpleasant , and for next 20 min i just was disappointed on how they did this, not to mention how Unsanitary it was. Don’t get me wrong, the tour was amazing and id do it again. After sail then lunch on island bout 20min to wait then free time in island(2 hours total). Lunch was basic n decent. Chicken rice cabbage salad pasta salad rolls. Then on speedboat and then went swimming in waist high water(starfish place) only seen one, but still gorgeous spot plus they even were swimming around handing out rum n cokes to us while we were in water. There for 30 min then back to port. Pickup was 650 am and dropped back off at almost 8pm. Its about hour n half each way from/to Santo Domingo and port

Great Vibes, Good Tomes
May 2021 • Couples
You have to be up by 6:30am for your driver to pick you up from hotel but it is well worth it. Pedro was an awesome driver. Be sure to bring gratuity,it’s the only thing that’s not included as the host (workers) will be taking beautiful pics, selling fresh coconuts n pineapples as well as massages. (They work for small tips) Lunch was good enough for me but I would advise one to eat before leaving. You could ask for as much food as you like when getting the lunch that’s included. Good vibes and great time!!! We will definitely be going back again soon.

FUN but limited
The pickup was excellent and on time, the drive wasn't bad at all but I wasn't happy with the amount of time spent
