Your adventure begins as you drive towards the sleepy port of Bayahibe.  Saona Island is located in the National Park of the East and is truly beautiful.   It is amongst the best diving here. It is on the Caribbean side of the island and the reefs there are the most remote and therefore the most pristine of all that we offer here. The first dive site is El Penon Uno and and the second is Reuben or El Penon Tres depending on conditions. The island itself is spectacular.

This is a full day tour with equipment, VIP transportation, Dominican buffet lunch and open bar after the dives. (we leave in the morning and are back by 6 pm or so). We also do a stop in the natural pool and take photos with the starfish on the way home.   Here on average there are approx 20 people on the boat (some snorkelers, some divers).

Once on the island you will enjoy a delicious Dominican BBQ buffet and unlimited rum drinks.  After lunch enjoy some free time where you can choose to dance to the Latin rhythms of meringue and bachata, swim in the turquoise sea, walk a stretch of virgin beach or simply relax in the sun. We are sure that this day trip will be amongst the most memorable moments of your vacation. This is a full day excursion and we will pick you up directly in your hotel lobby.
