Ok this tour was a bit if a mixed bag.
I very much doubt that the beach they took us to was Saona Island! I think it was just a beach along the coast of DR! It wasn't even a nice beach as it was quite rocky underfoot.
Catamaran cruise was fun, blue lagoon swim lovely and speedboat trip back great
I received very little information when I booked this trip which made it seem very unorganized. The catamaran cruise was my favorite part of the trip, the staff was awesome and made it fun and enjoyable. The time on Saona Island seemed too long. I didn't eat the lunch, by the time I went to get food everything was covered in flies. There were a lot of bugs leading to a lot of bug bites. The speed boat trip and swim in the blue lagoon were fun. If I were to do a trip like this again I would want to see an estimated time schedule of everything on the trip before booking. This trip was fun, just not sure if it was the right trip for me.
I cannot given any rating for this tour. We arrived at La Romana the day before this tour. The hotel staff contacted the company to confirm pickup time. The tour company staff spoke very little English, they apparently had no reference to our booking for this tour. Eventually I was told tour was not going to be offered and I was to book for another date. This was not possible as my remaining days were booked. Word of advice to anyone considering this tour. Don't. I had phoned Viator's international telephone number and was assured they would look into this problem and email me. Received no email. On my return to Australia I phoned Viator in Australia and eventually I was credited the cost for this tour
The excursion was by far unorganized. It seemed as if they overbooked people to come on the Saona Island excursion. Several people had to wait in a middle island for a long time until the excursion began. The staff barely spoke in English to the non-spanish speakers, and only did so when asked.
