“Seavis Saona Crusoe VIP with Ingrid”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

We booked this tour and were absolutely blown away with the beauty we experienced.
Everything about it was great, the starfish adventure, the snorkeling, the food served for lunch and the high-speed boat rides.
Learning about the turtle guy that oversees the turtle nest was great and just being able to hangout in such beautiful surroundings was amazing.

“Great Day!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

Was exactly what we wanted and our type of Eco tour. We were picked up right on time from our Punta Cana hotel by a mini-bus and then transferred to a larger one. We arrive on time and checked in and was on the boat with no problems. Ingrid warned us of a bumpy ride but volunteered to ride up front anyway. It actually was quite fun bouncing over the waves and getting wet. Enjoyed the snorkelling and the great lunch along with all the sights......

“Great way to spend the day!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

We took the River Chavon special with our son. What a fantastic day. Robert was a friendly and informative guide and answered any questions we had during our time with him. We had an amazing Dominican bbq of chicken, pork and other goodies. The food was great. Then he took us through the woods and showed us the growth of the local fruits and vegetables. We went kayaking down the river and into a cove. Once back to shore, the kids could use a Tarzan rope to swing and jump into the river.
The only thing missing were the snakes and tarantulas. I was fine with that, but our son was really looking forward to it. The tarantulas are in hibernation at this time of year which we found out later. All in all, I would totally recommend Seavis for any private excursions. Their prices are way more reasonable than what the cruise ships charge and they are very reliable.

Thanks for your review. We are happy that you liked the Chavon Special Tour. Unfortunately our snake was taken by our veterinarian for a consult that day. Now he is back healthy again. Hopefully we see you back some day. Marion.

“Highly recommend the Saona Carnival Special!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

What a great time we had in DR, and it was all thanks to the Seavis Tour group. The taxi situation at the port is a bit sketchy, but we got off the ship right away and were one of the first people in line for the taxis. Be sure to book transportation ahead of time (through Seavis), because they pull people out of line who have and those who don't get to wait. We had our reservation paper in hand, and they came up to us and looked at it.

The boat ride to the beach is a bit cramped, but everything is awesome once you get to the beach. The snorkeling at the old pier is great. The coral is very colorful, and their are a lot of fish in the area. I recommend bringing your own gear, but there is community gear available. The photographers are a bit pushy, but it's easy enough to say no. There is a lot of boat traffic at the drop-off, but there is a swimming area nearby. There are plenty of chairs and places to set up on the beach.

The food was good and plentiful. There is also plenty to drink. If you like rum, you'll have an especially great time. At the second stop, Ingrid was handing out drinks like a champion! I have several pictures with a starfish in one hand and a drink in the other. Everyone was very aware of keeping trash out of the water, which was really good to see.

The boat ride back was still cramped, but it was a lot of fun because they really get them moving. The same taxi we came in on was waiting for us, and we got back to the port with plenty of time to look around the shops.

I highly recommend this group and the tour specifically for Carnival of you cruise into La Romana!

“Best day of our trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

I booked online weeks before I was in DR. I was very happy with the quick email response to my questions and concerns! My boyfriend and I went on the VIP Saona island speed boat tour. It was seriously the best part of our trip. Ingrid knew everything there was to know about the places we visited, and I learned so much while relaxing on many different beaches ! We also checked out the town on Saona island, and that was really interesting, we got to see lots of puppies which was exciting for me! The food that was supplied was great! Amazing time snorkelling and swimming, relaxing on the fine white sand beaches. The only complaint I have is that you are kind of pressured to take pictures (40$), but if you don't mind saying no a bit, you can brush it off.
