Saona Island

My partner and I are looking at doing this excursion but I just wondered who /which company was best to go with? And if there are any differences between different groups.

Also please recommend any other good excursions Thankyou

Seavis Bayahibe usually gets good reviews and they do a trip to the turtle hatchery at Mano Juan but , iirc, this is motor boat only. Otherwise look for a trip which is speedboat out and catamaran or trimaran back - you can't party on the speedboat. Viator has lots of these.

The best is to go to Bayahibe and book the boat & itinerary you like best. That way you can avoid the tourist herds and go to a deserted beach and have the boys cook a lobster (in season) for you - which is precisely what we did first time to Saona.

Catalina island (Caribbean) is also worth a visit for diving/snorkelling as is Cayo Levantado at Samaná (North Atlantic). I found an excursion which goes to Samaná bay and Las Terrenas but it's GBP145 ish.

We did Saona island with Pro Excursions. proexcursionsbayahibe.com/snorkling-tours/to… We liked that you are on a 45 ft. catamaran both ways instead of a small speed boat. They had an open bar, music and dancing both ways. We were the only English speaking people on the boat that day, so they brought a guide on the boat for just for us. We booked before we arrived and paid the morning of the tour. We would definitely do this tour again.
