Isla Saona is a must see when visiting the Dominican Republic, and there's no doubt that the best way to visit is on your own private yacht!
Rise and shine, and get ready to start your day! Be picked up at your hotel in private transportation with your own personal guide, and ride approximately 1 hour to the town of Bayahibe to embark on a day of VIP service out to the off-shore island of Isla Saona. Your trip will start with a lovely breakfast of coffee, fruit and finger sandwiches. Indulge yourself as you take a tour of your vessel for the day, fully equipped with a full staff, 2 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, kitchen, salon and jacuzzi!
Take in the glorious views and enjoy your first stop in a waist deep natural pool in the middle of the ocean, where you are served beverages and small sandwiches on the floating bar while listening to your music of choice, snorkeling and searching for starfish in crystal blue waters. After basking in your fabulous life, you will then be transported to the main event!
Isla Saona is a 42 square kilometer Caribbean oasis off the southern coast of the Dominican Republic. Originally named "Adamanay" by the Taino Indians, the island was renamed by Christopher Columbus, during his second voyage to the Americas in 1494. The name, "Saona", commemorated his friend Michele da Cuneo, from Savona, Italy.
Here you will have approximately 3 hours to enjoy the beauty of this little island. First fill your bellies with a feast of lobster, typical rice dishes, pasta, salad, fruit and beverages. Follow that with a nice little snooze, take a dip or a relaxing beach walk, play volleyball or catch up on some reading. But wait, your day of indulgence is not done yet!
Get on your yacht and cruise back to the natural pool, fully enjoying this special place one more time before lounging on the deck for your ride back to Bayahibe and then back to your resort. Believe me, once you experience the pleasures of private, you'll never go back!
