What you'll do

You can start anywhere in the Punta Cana / Bavaro area for this beautiful - and often private! - cruise to Saona. It's $480 for a private group up to 7. A private chauffeur will pick you up at your hotel (booked separately) and take you to the boat. Or you can meet me directly at the boat in Bayahibe (50 mins from Bavaro). After a quick briefing (all in English) you'll hop aboard the very comfortable boat on which you can chill and take in the sun and surroundings as we head to natural shallow-water pools, away from the crowds. You'll be free to swim and snorkel (equipment provided) and soak up the immaculate nature and warm waters. We'll then head to the fabulous island of Saona. I know where and when to go to avoid the noisy, crazy catamaran parties! You'll have fresh lunch served for you on board - either sandwiches and soft drinks (free). Or grilled burgers, hot-dog or vegetarian dish ($10 extra per person) or lobster or salmon ($25 extra per person) - all freshly grilled on the boat. Private transport from your accommodation in Punta Cana costs usually $150 return. I can help arrange the booking. There will be countless photo opportunities throughout the trip. And opportunities for you to learn about the local area and nature! Only 7 guests maximum on the boat, so you'll have a chance to meet a couple of other guests or maybe have the boat to yourselves!

Osvaldo

Hi, I'm Ossy! I've spent the last 25 years skippering boats large and small, including several years in the US. I've spent most of those years leading large scale ocean clean-up projects, in particular dealing with those nasty oil spills you hear about! I'm passionate about my native Dominican Republic and its pristine nature and water. Now I want to share that passion with you and show you the most beautiful, untouched parts of this area, far from the crazy crowds... I look forward to welcoming you on board!

Where you'll be

Pristine shallow-water 'pools', ideal for swimming, snorkelling and relaxing in warm waters. Just off the National Park, this is Dominican Republic's natural beauty at its best - and far away from the crowds! Then we go to Saona island, where you'll be enchanted by the long, pristine white-sand beaches and their giant coconut trees and get to explore inland.
