Private Catamaran Cruise Aboard the 'Quetzal'

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Your group will board the Quetzal in the morning around 8:30am, and then sail for an hour and a half to Saona. Lunch will then be served at a local restaurant, around a freshly fished lobster (note that lunch is not included in the tour price). You will be able to relax on hammocks, sun loungers and canopy beds under the generous shade of majestic coconut trees for the next three hours. 
    The Quetzal will then sail to Catuano, where snorkelers will be able to observe a wide range of tropical fish which have made a home of the remnants of an old pier. The boat will then sail to the natural swimming pool of Las Palmillas, a magical secluded place with the clearest of waters. The highlights of this spot are the giant starfish. Drinks and refreshments will be served in the water before a smooth sail back to Bayahibe along the coast.

    Incredible experience. Smooth ride, room to dance. Take you own music and cable to connect to speakers. The lunch for most was good, for me as vegetarian, so so, the pasta could have been more interesting. Ask for a more nutritious vegetable dish. Take water...More
