Booked Caribbean Cruising while in resort. It was a day trip on speedboats and Catamarans. We stopped on Saona island for a few hours. The beach is pristine and the water fabulous so clear and calm. You can stand in the water and see the fish swimming around your feet and legs. The island is a reserve and the Dominican... More

About an hours ride from punta carna, trip was well organised, cater organ trip on the way out was peaceful, the island looked stunning, we arrived in good time, the sand was a pristine white, clean, went for a dip and was a little surprised too see the shoreline was quite rocky, which challenged the feet a bit, drinks and...

This was a trip to remember. We stopped and bought some wonderful art along the way. Hopped on speed boats and stopped at a natural swimming barge. Here we saw many star fish in the water . When we finally got to the Island we were greeted by locals and had a great lunch . We relaxed in the sun... More

My family went to Saona island. This is a 7 hours trip. We enjoy and have fun. I recommend this trip. The food and drinks are included. Plus they take you to the place they filmed the blue lagoon movie. Beautiful. This is a must go place.

One of the most beautiful places I've ever visited. Tour guide Valantine was the best. Lunch on the island was great.

Too long of a day..was not told we would have to be transferred from punta cana by van to another part of Dominican Republic. It took two hours to get there. We were transported from our resort by van to a gas station to get on another van to a gift shop to pick up more people before we finally... More

Isla Saona was the most relaxing and fun excursion that we could have been a part of. The beach was beautiful, swimming with starfish was pretty cool. On the beach, the staff work really hard to get everything you want, going as far as climbing a tree to get two fresh coconuts for me. The speedboat ride was a bit... More

This is the perfect way to spend a low-key day! If you are looking to having a beach day, but want to get away from the hotels. This day we were just going with the flow. Girlfriends and I used this day, since we weren't feeling too active, but wanted to have a beach day, but wanted to see more... More

LOVED. The saona boat tour is a must do. Only for adults.. Drinking, dancing (with very fun workers!) and eating on a boat in the middle of the Caribbean, what's better? SO beautiful where they bring you.
