Your tour begins with pick-up from your central Punta Cana hotel and a short ride to Bayahibe beach, the starting point for your cruise. Hop aboard a catamaran and soak up the scenery as you zip out across the ocean. Along the way, sip a drink from the on-board bar (own expense) as you enjoy the on-board entertainment and music, or just laze on deck and admire the views.
As you near Saona Island, keep a look out for the exotic birds, tropical fish and colorful starfish that frequent the island’s coast, then step ashore to stroll along the white sand beaches. European visitors might recognize Saona’s palm-fringed main beach – it was the setting for the popular Bounty chocolate bar commercials, as well as featuring on countless postcards and tour brochures.
After tucking into a delicious buffet lunch of typical Dominican cuisine, jump aboard a speedboat for the second part of your adventure – a visit to one of the island’s renowned natural pools. Enjoy free time to swim in the cool, crystalline waters, before heading back to your catamaran for the return journey.
Finally, after a full day at sea, arrive back at Bayahibe beach, where a driver will be waiting to drop you back at your hotel.
