We been in DR in November 2013 and booked Saona trip with Captain Gringo (via email, before leaving for the holiday) and that was the best idea we had. Everything was excellent. We don't like big groups of people so they recommended for us a trip with only 10 persons and that was amazing. Too bad for us it was... More

We went to Saona Island with Captain Gringo during our stay in the DR and thoroughly enjoyed the trip. We booked before leaving the Uk but were not expected to pay anything until we went on our first trip ( we also booked Samana by Air). We were collected on time from our hotel and driven to the embarkation point... More
