What You Can Expect

Catamaran Cruise to Saona Island from La Romana

Relax and enjoy the beauty of this tropical island!

Start with a pickup from your La Romana or Bayahibe hotel in the morning for your day trip to Saona Island. Head to the La Romana dock to board a catamaran and set sail along the crystal-clear Caribbean Sea. Your hosts will be with you throughout the day to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable journey.

Cruise to the ‘Natural Pool’ lagoon, and stop to explore natural rock pools full of marine life. Enjoy the views with a complimentary cocktail in hand. For the next leg of your trip, transfer to a speedboat for an exhilarating ride to Saona Island.

Famous for its stunning palm-fringed beaches, this tropical island is often used by filmmakers and advertisers for its quintessential ‘desert island’ setting, which you'll capture in full as you approach it from the water.

After docking on the beach, enjoy a buffet-style barbecue lunch under the shade of palm trees. Then, make the most of three hours of free time to lounge on the sand, swim in the turquoise waters, explore the island by foot, play beach volleyball or learn how to dance merengue: a typical Dominican style of dance.

Board a catamaran for your return trip to La Romana, enjoying unlimited drinks on board. Arrive back at the La Romana dock in the early evening, and finish the day with a hotel drop-off.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

It was wonderful. We had a good time. The so called "natural pool" was amazing, we took pictures with starfish, my daughter and niece loved it.

3 star rating: Worth doing January 2015

Very disorganized. Called the tour company to confirm, was told to be in the lobby at 9:20am, nobody showed up. If it wasn't for another rep who called them again and advised we are suppose to be picked up from the beach, we would've missed it. Save ur money Sanoa Is nothing special, bad lunch servd
