OPTION ONE

Exploring The Caribbean Sea Side Of The Dominican Republic.

Getting to the more tranquil Caribbean side of the island requires a 1 hour (approximately) transfer time from most hotels in the regular hotel zone.  Hotels in Uvero Alto have longer travel time. The three packages listed below are available for Caribbean adventures. You’ll have the choice of selecting our “Double Decker Motorised Catamaran”, which accommodates up to 50 people, or the “Sailing Catamaran”, which accommodates up to 70 people, or our smaller boat for groups of 6 or less looking for the ultimate private tour.

Explore The Tropical Waters

Saona Island Full-Day

Saona Island (or in Spanish, Isla Saona) is a beautiful island hideaway that’s just a small distance on the Caribbean side of the Dominican Republic mainland. Saona Island’s natural splendor is due in part to the fact that the island is a government protected nature reserve. Furthermore, Isla Saona is part of Parque Nacional del Este. Saona Island’s popularity is no secret, as the lush jungle-like splendor, and unspoiled beaches, and turquoise waters is a draw for tourists, locals, and even movie producers attempting to replicate the picture-perfect “deserted island paradise”.

A Secret Caribbean Hideaway

Starfish Cay Half-Day Snorkel

As many are aware (and others will soon have the pleasure of discovering), there are many “natural pools” scattered throughout the Dominican Republic. The most common of the natural pools have been made “popular” by “big, corporate tourist companies”. These pools are close to the major resorts and packed full of people. Who wants that??

At El Tour Caribe we know you value your space and that you are looking for a more personal experience than being crowded in a common space. That is why we are proud to bring you to a Natural pool that we’ve discovered that is so tranquil and so amazing that we’ve gone as far as to brand it ourselves as a natural pool unique to our adventure.

The name is Starfish Cay. Starfish Cay is an experience that you’ll always remember. Relaxation, fun in the sun, splashing in the tropical waves while enjoying a drink from our floating bar, and exploring the shallows of the Caribbean is just the tip of what you’ll experience with El Tour Caribe’s exclusive Starfish Cay Adventure.

We will take your group via Private Bus transfer (duration 50 minutes from most hotels in the regular hotel zone) to the beach where we will board the boat.

The only extra charges would be your personal spending on the day of the tour as well as our photo service should you choose to use it.

The first is the Paraiso Azul sail catamaran, which accommodates up to 24 people, or the Glass Bottom boat, which accommodates up to 12 people.
