A transport will be waiting for you at the taxi stand, at the exit of the cruise port, where all participants from the same boat as yours will gather. The driver will take you to our office in Bayahibe, the starting point of the excursion. Let's go to the breathtaking island of Saona! On our way, we will see the Penon, a rock formation. Our knowledgeable English-speaking guide will share fascinating insights into the history and culture of this area, including tales of the indigenous Taino people who once called it home. From there, we'll pass upon the mesmerizing mangrove forest - a wonderland of vibrant red mangroves that grow directly out of saltwater. Finally, we arrive at Saona Island itself! Our first stop will be on Saona Island, at Catuano Beach. We will spend 20 minutes at this beautiful site, perfect for snorkeling with fins, mask, and snorkel. Some can relax on the boat, while others can snorkel, according to their preferences. After these wonderful moments, we will board the boat again to head to Abanico Beach, where we will have a Dominican Lunch. Once the meal is finished, grab a hat and sunscreen for a swim in the turquoise waters of Saona Island. You will have about 1 hour to enjoy the beach, take incredible photos, and nap by the water's edge. In beauty, we will end with the famous natural pool where we can spot immense starfish (note: it is forbidden to touch them), have a drink in the shallow turquoise waters of the Caribbean, and enjoy a magical and unforgettable moment. Return to the Bayahibe port with unforgettable memories, where your transport will be waiting to take you back to the La Romana port.
