What people are saying about Bayahibe

Nice trip to a Caribbean island. Transfer was absolutely problem-free with a change (small to large bus or small to large boat). Crew not pushy and very friendly. You can party very well on the catamaran, but you don't have to. It won't be boring. Sufficient buffet and good selection. We recommend the pina colada made from pineapple on the island of Saona. Delicious! Beach and sea like in the catalog. The blue lagoon is the candy on this excursion. The speedboat ride wasn't too wild. In Bayahibe there are many street vendors for a last souvenir from this great day. There is a small studio / shop with souvenirs between the marina and the bus parking lot. Partly handmade. You can watch the artist at work. A hand-painted coconut magneto for a dollar! It is your own fault who does not buy there. Execution and service of all participating Dominicans excellent. When things seem chaotic ... keep calm! Great thanks!

Awesome excursion! It was about 11 hours total time but worth it. You get to spend about 3 hours on Samoa island and about an hour at the natural pool which was was stunning and We enjoyed an hour long ride back with a catamaran party. The staff was super friendly and lunch was delicious!!! Definitely one of the best excursions I’ve ever experienced!

Until there was drinks for the first time, I found it a bit long ... transfer by bus to boat, then by boat to the first stop ... over 3 hours, personally a bit too long for me without drinks at the temperatures ...

Very well organized, from pick-up time at the hotel, punctual, interactive guides, entertainment on the spectacular catamaran...lots of dancing and lots of vitamins...great day....

We had a wonderful day at Catalina Thanks to Marina, Nadine and the crew for a great snorkeling experience. To do absolutely !!!
