Beach fun!
May 2021 • Couples
Fantastic day on the water! The catamaran ride was exceptional and we enjoyed our time on the island. The short stop at the natural swimming beach was beautiful. Only drawback is expect to spend two hours before and after the excursion to pickup and drop off others.The driver and tour guides were very friendly and helpful. I’d do it again!

If you value your life, don’t do it!!!!
We book this activity along with another family; all together we were 4 adults, 2 teenagers and 1 young boy.

I started suspecting things were off when they switch us from a smaller van into a big bus at a gas station, sharing the bus with at approximate 40-50 people; I literally fell like cattle.

NO COVID SAFETY PROTOCOLS AT ALL!!!

When we arrived to Bayahibe, we walked towards the beach where we had to board a shuttle boat that would take us to the Catamaran.

They literally push the entire bus into one boat, people was even using the front of the boat to sit because there was no room anywhere.

Just when I tough it couldn’t get worse, they tell us halfway to the catamaran, that we were going to be meet more people and at that point, I had enough.

There were at least 50 more people in the boat already. See the picture and do your own count.

I complained and asked to be taken back to my hotel, I told them I didn’t come here to die of COVID or at the bottom of the sea. I was told it was not possible, and since they notice my anger the cleared a small area at the front of the boat for me and my family, which at that point it was meaningless.

Other people in the group told me there told it was going to be a small group.

This company is deceiving, they lie to get your business and have absolutely no regard for human life.

I have to say the crew was very polite and tried to do their best to make us feel good.

Again, find another company that have safety as a top priority.

I did 2 tours with this company. 1 to Macao Beach and the mountain and the other was a day trip to Saona Island. My tour guide also assisted me in finding a medical center for completing a covid test. I had someone stay with me and advocate for me as well as translate for me because my Spanish is BAD. Overall when I come back to DR, I'll be contacting Vacation on RD.

Amazing time under palm trees
Dec 2020 • Friends
We had a great time enjoying the beautiful water of Saona! The trip was smooth but makesure you bring plenty of snacks and towels. I am glad they didnt make us wear a mask I am tired of all these "karens" leaving bad reviews because of masks. Negative the bathroom there was disgusting.

Good experience overall. The good, bad, the ugly.
This was a fun excursion. A 15 passenger van picked us up at the resort. Some wore masks on the van trip. There is some vendors trying to sell you stuff while your waiting for the speed boat that holds about 30 people. The island itself is a beach. Not anywhere to really explore. They bring hot lunch to you and beers. The natural swim area is a shallow area in the sea to swim in the way to the beach. We got to hold a giant star fish there. The beach itself is decent. The beach is a private area for excursion people. There are a few people trying to sell you pineapples and lobsters. We really enjoyed the catamaran ride back. It was nice and relaxing hanging on a boat for a couple of hours. There is a person taking pictures during the excursion that you can buy at the end for $40-$50.

Amazing experience!
Oct 2020 • Couples
We were having such a good time at the resort that we weren't sure id it was worth going. It was totally worth it! The beach is so much better than bavaro ir juanillo. Both the natural pools and saona beaches are amazing. The trip back in the catamaran was very fun. The music was way too loud, but we moved to the front of the boat. The agency was great. They sent us a message to let us know they were arriving 10 minutes late and kept. And they were all really nice. I would definitely go again to saona island and do it with Vacations on RD.
