    Nino, Antonio and Captain Michael were a great crew for our group. Some went snorkeling and said the fish were beautiful and some just chilled on the boat and was served great drinks and delicious guacamole and salsa! Stopped at the sandbar for some swimming and yes more cocktails! Great excursion to get away from your resort! We are Happy About Happy Fish!!

    Overall it was a great tour, the boat rides were great with music and drinks, the natural pool and the nature and water there are amazing. Saona is one of the most beautiful islands i have ever seen, we spent two and a half hours there. Christian was a great guide and the whole staff was very nice. The downside was the bus driver (they called him Barilla) who was obviously starring at all the ladies, even put stickers on their chests without asking (i did not see that, otherwise i would've i reacted) and my wife felt very uncomfortable (i believe a lot of the other ladies too). Also the photos they made were extremely overpriced (10 dollars per picture, a bit cheaper if you buy them all). If it wasn't for the driver i would've given 5 stars.

    This excursion was SO MUCH FUN! If you are looking for a boring excursion, this is not it! Everyone kept the laughter, energy, and Mamajuana flowing the entire time. My husband and I chose this excursion after seeing all of the 5 star reviews, and the reviews are absolutely correct. I would recommend this to any adults looking for a small adults only excursion. There were probably 15 people in our group, on a boat that could’ve fit many more. Every single thing about the excursion was great. Jorhe is an amazing host and will keep you smiling, laughing, and dancing. We went out snorkeling and saw tons of beautiful fish, then to land to have fresh coconuts filled with rum and sugar, a stopped at a literally sand “bar,” and an AMAZING fresh seafood lunch (I believe you can pick seafood, meat, or both). All topped off with drinks and dancing. One of the best excursions I have ever been on!

    Recommend this tour!!
    This is a gorgeous and exhilarating private tour well worth it!!! I've travelled multiple times to Dominican Republic and have taken many tours this one was very special indeed. We visited Saona island by boat, stopped at the Turtle sanctuary on Del Este National Park and met a wonderful gentleman who has saved over 20,000 turtles over the last 10 or so years. Melvin explained everything to us about the community who live on the island and we felt so privileged to see the sanctuary, they even gave us a gift of honey made right there! We also toured to 2 other beaches Toro beach which was very secluded and one more which had packed boats descending on the island, we were 14 in our boat here we had a gorgeous home cooked lunch and got free 10 minute massages for $'s you could have a longer one. The genuine hospitality expressed by Melvin and his wife Natalie were lovely, they expressed caring for each of us individually and took lots of photos so they could share them with us later.

    The dream team of the Bebe Catamaran gave us an unforgettable experience: music, dancing, enjoying the blue sea, getting to know 'the baby maker' ;-), snorkling, drinking from our 'floating bar' (special thanks to Chocolate).
    The beautiful and professional pictures by David number 2 will help us never forget.
    We'll surely recommend, keep up the good work muchachos!
    Love from Big Poppa and his girls ;-)

    The entire experience was perfect. Our tour guide Kenny went above and beyond in all aspects of this trip. Not only do you get to experience the waterfalls but there was a cool coffee/ hot chocolate stop with great souvenirs. Lunch was great as well. The wifi on board the shuttle was a nice cherry on top.

    Overall had a fun time! Communication with company was very lacking and time in each activity was short. Staff on boat was very friendly and lots of fun! I have swam with sharks on other islands and they were much better than this being able to take photos and touch the sharks. Didn’t even get pictures of the sharks on this activity. Only interacted with 1 sting Ray and felt rushed in parasailing. Still had a fun day! Food was good on boat and drinks were flowing.

    Frankie, captain Raphael and crew were spectacular. Wonderful family afternoon snorkeling and swimming. Great experience and a good price for a private boat! Would definitely recommend! - The Barrett Family.

    Overall good! Catamaran was way too long. People were fighting after being drunk. Remember you have to switch from a speedboat to a catarmaran halfway in the ocean. This is very dangerous since both boats rock back and forth. First world countries government would never approve this transfer, since it was very dangerous. Not good for small kids or older adults. One lady almost fell in the ocean. The island is beautiful but the lunch was not. No vegetarian food either.

    Day before the trip we received notification of the time and place we will be pick up. As promised we were picked up from the main hotel lobby at 6:30am. From there we were brought to main meeting point where all the mini vans met.Then we get to full size comfortable bus, and we took off.Unlike many reviews there was no loud music blasted throughout the trip. Yes we stopped for 25 min at souvenir shop for shopping. However most people took the time to have a coffee and change clothing for more appropriate swimming outfit. Entire trip took about 2 hours, since the distance from our hotel to the port for Saona Island is located almost 100km. We were well aware and prepared for that.Then we drove to the boat launch for Saona Island. First we took 4 speed boats to get to the Saona. On the way we stopped for 30 min at a place called natural swimming pool which is a lagoon with beautiful crystal clear blue water. From there we jet blasted to the Island. We were there as one of the first tourists group that day. That was real blessing, we could enjoyed the beach for ourselves. The spot we stayed was incredible real postcard place. Water was warm turquoise, no seaweeds at all, and almost no waves. We stayed an the Island for 2.5hours. In the midpoint we were offered buffet style lunch with grilled meat and fresh salads. There were fresh pina colada and coconuts for purchase. On the way back we took catamaran . Trip back on that big boat was real fun. 2 hours real Caribbean party all the way back to mainland. The most important to consider. It is all day excursion so be prepared. You will not be hungry or thirsty, food and drinks are provided. Our tour guide was funny and professional, simultaneously spoke 4 languages, we had large group of Germans, also French, English, and Spanish. Bottom line, there is room for improvements but compared to the other tour we took(where we did not see half of the promised places) it was real fun and well organized. Money well spent.

    This was a great experience for the entire family. Having the boat all to ourselves added to the family bonding experience. Don Julio and his crew were absolutely amazing. Kept the drinks flowing and the fun going! The snorkeling was great and the kids loved the slide. The food was amazing and the best we’ve had all week! You won’t regret booking this.

    The party boat was so fun!! The operators were friendly and engaging and helped make the experience lit. I was looking to party and we did that lol be willing to mingle and talk I think that made the experience more fun! I was able to bring my own liquor which was a big plus and they provided lots of rum punch! Also loved they had a photographer on the boat. Would highly recommend

    We purposely chose Quetzal for less crowds and less of a party boat vibe, and it was perfect for us. Saona Island is so beautiful and well worth the effort to get there. My only suggestion for improvement would be that I would have liked to stay there longer. Our hostess was tri-lingual, fun, and very helpful. The lunch they served was delicious as were the cocktails. All in all a great relaxing day and we felt well taken care of.
