Traveler Tips


  • "Once back on the speedboat we were then advised to look left and right to see the starfish which was quite difficult on a boat going at speed and on which you had to remain seated." See review

Benjamin was out your awesome guide. Our photographer took amazing pictures of all of us all day long and worked a package for our group of 16. The entire trip was Perfect! We booked the VIP by mistake and ended loving it. It was worth it!! We were treated as VIPs, really. Lobster and champagne for lunch. Delicious food, and drinks all day long. We sailed back on a catamaran, open bar. This was the Greatest excursion we did in Punta Cana. I highly recommend it.

Most beautiful island thus far

This island is amazing and the vip is definitely worth it . The only down side is when you get off the bus to get on the boat the locals are very aggressive with selling like no is not the answer . Like I get it but it was a lot of them like we had dollar signs written all over us .This is not a negative on the company or the island . I would recommend this to anyone

The communication with the company at first was difficult and they were 1 hour late to the hotel pick up. But at the end it was worth it. They did respect the social distancing policy of 15 max per group. I was other companies with bigger groups. The tour guides were very friendly. Thank you Benjamin and José.

Beautiful island

I would highly recommend this excursion, the island is beautiful, most likely the most beautiful place I’ve been. I’ve travelled a lot so this is really saying something. The food and the drinks are very good. I would have liked to be able to stay on the island at least an hour longer as it does take a lot to get there. Be prepared for a min 1.5 hour drive from hotel to get to the pier. 3 hours of down time is a fair amount so just be prepared for that. Bring a towel and water shoes. The island is rocky. Overall we enjoyed this trip a lot and would recommend it, it’s a great deal for what you get.

No Social Distancing Read

Traveled 1st week of August for my birthday. I was so excited to visit the island and took the risk after reading the reviews and promise of social distancing. DO NOT book this excursion, it does not offer social distancing. We were picked up in a van on time 7:00am, that was completed packed. We just kept picking up people. We finally get to the beach which was an hour away from Bahia Principe Punta Cana, only to get on a speed boat that was packed to capacity. I understand they need to make money, but we are in the middle of a pandemic. I know i shouldn't be traveling, but don't have false advertising, allow me to assess the level of risk I want to take. Anyhoo, the island was beautiful. However, I paid for VIP it advertised lobster and shrimp, and there was NO lobster. We did receive the champagne and buffet. The people on the beach were very aggressive with trying to sell jewelry, braid our hair, or a massage. Just wanted to relax and enjoy the beach. The driver was amazing and got us back to the hotel before the 7pn curfew.

Amazing experience! Our tour guide team led by Benjamin were outstanding. Appreciate them for waiting for us since we were a bit late to the puck up point. Nevertheless, the day was incredible. Saona Island is truly a paradize. This is a must tour!

We had a great time on this excursion! The tour guide is hilarious and the provided lunch is delicious! For anyone going, I recommend having snacks, because it is a VERY long day and they only provide lunch at 1pm for food. The “open bar” is only rum and coke but changes to beer, rum, sprite and coke at lunch. They also have fruit punch for kids. I would definitely recommend!

Fantastic trip altogether. The only drawback was that the ticket stated pickup at 06:30, but the shuttlebus arrived first at 07:46.

Great experience and well organised for the most part... Visiting the natural swimming pool was a nice stop off then on to Saona Island. Had a guide called Benjamin who was very informative and helpful. On Saona island you have plenty of time to enjoy the beach and fresh pina colada in a pineapple 😋😎 Catamaran back more of a party vibe.... A relatively long day as had 50 minute wait after collection for an additional coach to get on but overall very good. Tip: all prices quoted for extras on the island are US Dollar
