Saona island was perfect. There was really nice sand beach. Transport was good and the pickup was on time. We arrived there by a speedboat before anyone else, so we had time to take nice pictures. Later it became very crowded. The bar on the island didn't have much of a food choice, but otherwise great trip. Boggies were also interesting. We were lucky to be fast group and didn't have to wait anyone, because we were driving in a line. The cave and macao beach were to fast to visit. We had about 20min on each to swim. On the way back there were open 'showers' to clean the dirt. They also have lockers for 5dollar, to put clean clothes in it. They also sell things like swimming shoes, bandanas and glasses for protection, but you really don't need anything else but sunglasses.

This excursion was great. The transportation came on time and Alberto took excellent care of our group throughout the day. We took a speedboat to the natural pool and Saona Island which was exhilarating and we spent a relaxing couple of hours on the beach where lunch was provided. The catamaran ride back to the port was so much fun and relaxing as well. The entire day was perfect. Same with the dune buggy rides. Transportation was on time but I would recommend bringing your own goggles, towels, etc as they are pricey on site. Overall I am definitely glad I booked this excursion. It made my trip to Punta Cana absolutely amazing.

A great excursion, very enjoyable and fun day. Good organization they send you an email the day before to say when they pick you up and the catamaran with music is very fun, beautiful Saona island the food is good hammocks there for free sunbathing. Highly recommended and at a very good price.

Very very good activity, well organized, meal animation at the top level The small downside no communication between the service provider on site and the customer Obliged to contact get your guide for information (eg. Pick up time at the hotel)

Very good service, excellent experience, the tour was spectacular, I give them 10
