Saona Island Excursion by Catamaran and Speedboat
From US$ 85.00
Visit the can't-miss Saona Island via two different modes of nautical transportation—catamaran or speedboat—on this full-day tour from Punta Cana. Relax on the deck of a catamaran or speedboat during the outgoing journey, then spend three hours at your leisure and dig in to a barbecue buffet. Make the most of your time on your return journey with a stop at the natural pool on the way back to shore.
What to Expect
Morning pickup in Puna Cana or Bavaro means you’ll begin the day stress-free. Enjoy the scenery on the way to Bayahibe, where you'll board either a catamaran or speedboat for the ride to Saona Island.

Upon arrival, you can decide how to spend your time, making this tour a great choice for independent travelers. Options for activities include volleyball and dance lessons, or you can simply relax on the provided lounge chairs and sip drinks from the open bar. Stroll down the white sand beach under the swaying palm trees to collect shells or go for a swim until it's time for the barbecue-style buffet lunch.

At the end of the day, reboard the boat for the return trip to the mainland, stopping at the area's famous natural pool to take a swim and see the resident starfish. Back on the main island, enjoy convenient drop-off back at your hotel.

Full day & too long

The bus picked us up at 7am at our hotel. Hour 1/2 ride to the gas station where we stopped to use the bathroom. The poor guide gave us a history of the island before we all passed out from the long ride. When we...More
