The Saona Island Excursion: (3/4 day trip for divers):
We do a dive off the coast at Saona Island then head to shore to have a buffett lunch and some great surface interval time. Here you can just relax in the sun or do some snorkeling off the beach near the old pier. In the afternoon we head out for another dive before making our way back to Bayahibe, stopping along the way at the Piscina Natural.
