We had a great time on this tour and enjoyed the crew members as well as the other attendees. I would recommend for anyone visiting the DR, reasonable rates, prompt and fun.

We on this boat last week after being approached on the beach by El Gringo. He sells the cruises, but does not appear to participate in them. We paid $50 US each, and actually had a nice experience on the boat. His crew were friendly and fun, and the snorkeling was good. However, we were approached by one of his... More

We booked this tour after reading the excellent reviews online. We booked our tour one month prior to traveling. The night before the tour was to take place, we received a phone call after 10pm saying that the tour was cancelled since there were not enough people signed up. We were scheduled to take the tour on our last full... More

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

It was an excellent day! Staff was very attentive and professional, especially Capitan Viruta. If you have a chance take the VIP tour, they take you to many more areas and beaches than the regular tour

A fast speed boat bouncing over waves and hot-dogging along the beach, rum and cokes under a palm tree on a gorgeous beach, grilled lobsters, snorkeling, a visit to a turtle sanctuary and a peek at a tropical island village, topped off with a catamaran ride full of dancing Italians back to the harbor! My whole family loved it and... More
