Visit the can't-miss Saona Island via two different modes of nautical transportation—catamaran and speedboat—on this full-day tour from Punta Cana. Relax on the deck of a catamaran during the outgoing journey, then spend hours at your leisure and dig into a barbecue buffet. Make the most of your time on your return journey by speedboat with a stop at the natural pool on the way back to shore.

What to Expect
Morning pickup in Punta Cana or Bavaro means you begin the day stress-free. Enjoy the scenery on the way to Bayahibe, where you board either a catamaran for the ride to Saona Island. Upon arrival, you can decide how to spend your time, making this tour a great choice for independent travelers. Options for activities include volleyball and dance lessons, or you can simply relax on the provided lounge chairs and sip drinks from the open bar. Stroll down the white sand beach under the swaying palm trees to collect shells or go for a swim until it's time for the barbecue-style buffet lunch. At the end of the day, board a speedboat for the return trip to the mainland, stopping at the area's famous natural pool to take a swim and see the resident starfish. Back on the main island, enjoy convenient drop-off back at your hotel.

The natural pool was beautiful and Saona Island is stunning. Bring water shoes as there is a ton of coral in the water. The only disappointment was the food and drinks. The food was terrible-cheap and poor variety. The drinks were terrible too. All they had was rum and Coke,
