We booked this excursion with the Amstar representative at our Sunscape Resort, Hochiminh Astacio. He did a great job of recommending several excursions for us. We took a catamaran sailboat to the island with snorkeling and star fish adventures along the way. Once there, more cocktails and a great lunch which included all the lobster you could eat. What a...

We booked the trip the day before with Scruba Caribe for $65pp. Many thanks to our crew Maria, Melvin, Emilio and Miguel who kept us entertained on the catamaran and to Caesar who explained to us what the trip was going to be like and who was our first point of contact with the company. Whilst at the hotel we... More

This day trip to Isla Saona was a wonderful excursion. You start by taking a bus to a sea coast town to board speed boats. They take you to the island which is very beautiful, with sandy beaches and provide a BBQ lunch.The return trip is on a large catamaran with rum and dancing. The three girls who are are... More

I love this place! The beaches, the snorkeling and scuba diving, as well as bird watching: I've been there many times for these activities. Always a success.

This trip wasn't as good as I expected. Had a good ride down on a catamaran. The crew on the boat made the trip fun, getting people up and dancing. Stopped at a shallower area with sandy bottom to swim. Got to see a few starfish in the water. They had plenty of drinks and food from the boat to... More

This place was beautiful! We took an excursion there on a speed boat and returned on a catamaran! Well organized and none of the touristy feel! My only complaint was that the "free beer" was essential in cups barely bigger that a shot glass! The massage ladies negotiate so don't pay full price ! Enjoy! We certainly did!!

This is the most ridiculous excursion I have ever taken. Lots of driving and waiting. Getting to a boat that is over loaded and waiting some more. Finally getting to a beautiful shallow water where its waist deep. Getting off the boat to get pictures with starfish they had to pickup before getting to this area, more waiting. Oh by... More
