You will board the Quetzal in the morning around 8:30am, and then sail for an hour and a half to Saona. Lunch will then be served at a local restaurant, around a freshly fished lobster. You will be able to relax on hammocks, sun loungers and canopy beds under the generous shade of majestic coconut trees for the next three hours. The Quetzal will then sail to Catuano, where snorkelers will be able to observe a wide range of tropical fish which have made home in the remaining old pier.

The boat will then sail to the natural swimming pool of Las Palmillas, a magical secluded place with the clearest of waters. The highlights of this spot are the giant starfish. Drinks and refreshments will be served in the water before a smooth sail back to Bayahibe along the coast

By choosing this catamaran and excursion you will receive transfer from your hotel to the Bayahibe marina (just included for Bayahibe area hotels). Welcome drinks, water, juices, sodas, beers, rum and punch will be  provided throughout the day, along with lunch.
