Our Saona Island private boat tour from Santo Domingo gets you off the beaten path allows you to discover the natural beauty of the island in a very different way. The largest island in Dominican waters, this beautiful nature preserve is very popular and gets visited by millions of tourists year round. While most of the visitors are only shown a very small portion of the island, our unique nature tour takes you away from the crowds to explore virgin beaches, mangrove forests, coastal lagoons, enjoy an amazing lunch at the sleepy fishing village of Mano Juan, visit a local turtle conservation center, and take a dip in a gorgeous sand bar in the middle of the ocean. Allow us to show you the greener, less touristy side of this pristine tropical paradise!
