A vehicle will be ready for you at the taxi area near the exit of the cruise terminal, where everyone from your cruise will gather. The driver will then take you to our office in Bayahibe, which is where our adventure begins. Come join us in Bayahibe for a family-friendly adventure on our waiting boat. Prepare for a special trip to Saona Island! We'll start by exploring Penon, where our guide will tell us about its history and the Taino people. After that, we'll navigate through mangroves, passing by thriving Palétuvier trees. When we arrive at Saona Island, we'll visit Mano Juan village, seeing local life among colorful houses and small shops. We'll also stop by a turtle nursery run by locals, which shows their conservation efforts, although we might not see newborns due to seasonal changes. For lunch, you can taste Dominican cuisine while enjoying stunning views of Saona Beach. During lobster season (July 1st - February 29th), it's available for $25 per person. Later, we'll head to Canto de la Playa, a beautiful beach perfect for relaxing or snorkeling. Our final stop is a natural pool where you can see large starfish (please avoid touching them). Guests can swim in the shallow waters and enjoy refreshing drinks, ending the journey with unforgettable memories when we return to Bayahibe port. The tour ends in Bayahibe, where your transport will be waiting to take you back to La Romana port.
