    What a wonderful afternoon! The whole process was seamless - from pick up to drop off. Ivan, Antonio and Michele were fun, friendly and helpful.
    The snorkeling was great and then we stopped to relax in the shallow water. They didn’t rush us at all- we definitely went over the prescribed time. Drinks provided the entire trip as well as snacks.
    Our kids range in age from 10-17 and all enjoyed it.

    Wonderful day at sea with my girl. Met new friends, listened to great music, had a delish lunch and was hosted by a fun and professional team. Had 2 opportunities to snorkel and saw plenty of wildlife.

    This was a long day. We started with the Parasailing, we were fitted up with the harness - you go in pairs - and then up you go. You are only in the air for about 5mins each. Unfortunately me and my friend were dunked in the sea three times and then pulled across the floating barrier that they have in the sea. We understand that can happen, but no one apologised or asked if we were okay. The boat driver was always distracted and on his phone, so that’s probably why we ended up in the water.
    We then had lunch at the hut they have on the beach - chicken (on the bone) with soggy lettuce and tomato and a small roll. So if you are vegetarian, you aren’t eating a lot.
    We then went on the catamaran. Very loud music with people dancing and taking advantage of the open bar. If that is what you like, great. If you don’t, you just have to sit and wait. We were on the catamaran for HOURS.
    We were taken to the shark and rays experience - we weren’t aware the sharks and rays were in captivity and a stingray is held by a crew member and pushed against all the tourists standing in the line. You then swim above Nurse sharks and more stingrays in another enclosure, which doesn’t seem big at all for the animals. We were not impressed.
    We were then taken to another part of the sea to do some snorkelling - this was a great area to snorkel, lots of coral and small fish to watch. We were given about 20-30mins.
    We were taken to the Natural Pool - which is a shallow part of the sea, where all the catamarans with tourists go. People can walk and float in the sea whilst all the catamarans blast their music.
    Then we had the trip back to the shore, and it was a long time. We must have got back to our hotel about 19:30.
    I’ve said before Dominicans are really chill and laid back (can’t blame them), but there is a lot of waiting around and delays.
    I wish we were told that the sharks and rays were in captivity and that parasailing was longer!

    What an amazing snorkeling trip! We decided to go private with just our family of 6 as opposed to the bigger party boats we have done before and so glad we did! Such an amazing personal experience with incredible staff! Photographer on board with you as well!

    We came from Punta Cana, which of course was about a 3hr journey to Bayahibe port (which is fine). We had Christian as our tour guide. He was really friendly and spoke really good English. He was information about Saona Island. The coach had good air con. We got the speed boat from Bayahibe to Saona Island. To then be told we have 2 hrs on the island, and lunch as well. The lunch was a typical Dominican cuisine served by the local Saona inhabitants, which is great.
    The beach is stunning, literally a picture post card. It is worth going all the way there, just wished we were there about 3hrs.
    On the way back, we had the catamaran which they love doing the “party cruise”. So loud music, some people love a dance and to make use of the open bar (all the rum). If that’s your thing, great. If it isn’t, just sit and watch. The catamaran took about 2.5hrs to get back to the port, but also stopping off at the Natural Pool (a shallow part of the sea) where all the tourist catamarans stop to play all their music loudly and people to float about in the shallow sea.
    Then of course when we got to Bayahibe, we had the 3hr journey back to the hotel.
    I wouldn’t want to do this long tour again, but I did enjoy and love the island.

    I’ve realised in the Dominican Republic, it’s really relaxed, “Dominican 5 mins” means any time. Also, tours love taking you to all the souvenir shops in hopes of spending money.

    We too a private catamaran cruise with Happy Fish again at the end of June. Our first one was 6 years ago and we vowed to come back. We had another amazing day with our family of 5, the crew with Antonio, Daniel, and Nico were wonderful. They catered to our every need and made it another day to remember. We laughed the entire day. We will be back again and tell everyone we know about "Happy Fish". We love our hats, thank you all so much!

    The saona island trip was amazing! I loved getting in the natural spring and moat of all the swim in the shallow part of the ocean. The food at the island was good too. It was a beautiful place. I give 4 star because we did not get to see the star fish and also I guess somehow, I missed the nice part where we could've taken the kind of pictures I saw on social media. Like the palm that I could've climbed. I wish the tour guide had shown us that area. Other than that, even the tour guide, Benjamin was amazing! His personality is contagious.

    We had an amazing trip, it was the perfect amount of time for us. They brought some treats for the fish so they came around during the time we were snorkeling. The boat ride was beautiful as well and we had time to float around in shallower waters near the end. Music was playing and the crew did an awesome job getting people into the dancing. They were all very accommodating, funny and attentive. Drinks were plentiful and they had a nice little snack as well. Would definitely recommend this company!

    Fantastic day out but expect a long day ! Would rather have had speedboat there and back instead of catamaran as ours was too small for amount of people on trip and not enough seats for everyone ,also you only get about 2 hours on the island because of the traveling time , but it is a good day out

    This trip truly exceeded our expectations. The boat, the staff, the stops and the food. I first class company. We did the private boat trip with the slide and the kids had a ball. We had teenagers as well and everyone enjoyed this day. The food was amazing and the drinks were cold and plentiful. I give this a 10 out of 10 and would definitely book this again.

    PARASAILING was amazing! First time I’ve done it and did not disappoint. Luis was my tour guide for 2 days on my excursions and he was personable and made sure we had everything we needed. The boat tour was LIT too!
