Saona Island Information

Don’t miss the great experience to cruise on a big catamaran along the beautiful Dominican coastline. Enjoy a boat trip with Merengue music, drinks and a lot of fun where you will get Caribbean feeling.

We were told that it would take 45 minutes to get to the beach where the boat was.
It took 2 hours.
We specifically said that we did not want to go on a long boat ride or any type of party boat.
After 2 boat transfers, in three foot swells and three hours of blasting house music with no where to sit down, we arrived at the island.
Populated with thousands of others we were feed a not so hot buffet meal.
Spent a total of an hour and a half on the island's beach.
No activities or other distractions.
Finally back into a speed boat to go to a starfish area. This was the only enjoyable 10 minutes of the day.
Then back into the speedboat to get back to the beach.
The speedboat ran out of gas on the way back.
22 stranded people in three foot swells wait almost a half hour for some gas to be brought to us.
Finally reached the shore in order to take another unnecessary 2 hour bus ride back to the resort.
Had the bus taken the highway, each trip would have taken 45 minutes tops.
A total waste of a day and $200 American.
Total tourist rip off !!
