We recommend everybody to verify anything that is published on the web and check unbiased reviews. We are fully transparant and want you to pick the tour you desire. You can read numerous Saona Special reviews at the CruiseCritic.com forum and on Tripadvisor.com. We are known for a perfect organization and for expert guides.
We have specialized in high quality La Romana excursions and tours, suitable for passengers of the cruise ship arriving in the port of La Romana. The Saona Carnival Special is the most popular excursion by the members of CruiseCritic.com and by Carnival cruisers. Saona Island is the ultimate Caribbean dream: white beaches, swaying palm trees and turquoise waters. The Saona Special includes lunch and free drinks the whole day. Compare this with the offers of the onboard agents.....
And we don't forget the National Park del Este and the land part of the Dominican Republic. On only 7 taxi minutes from the cruise port you will find the river Chavon. The block busters Apocalypse Now, Rambo 3 and Anaconda were filmed here. And this is why: the river meanders through a deep gorge and the banks are covered in real tropical rainforest. If you are looking for something else then only beach and want to avoid the crowds, this is for you. Check the Wonders of Nature Tour when you want to get close to the local wildlife. And for the more active, check our Chavon Special.
We take you in fast speedboats along the coast line of the National Park del Este to Saona Island. We will land on Catuano beach and you can swim, snorkel or just hang out on this beautiful, real Caribbean beach. You can enjoy a great lunch on the beach. On the way back we'll stop at the famous sandbank with the star fish and you can taste the just as famous rum punch.... Check this excursion!
We'll start with the great Chavon River Cruise on our traditional river boat. After 45 minutes we'll arrive at Yuca Yena, a small jungle farm on the banks of the Chavon river. We enjoy a delicious lunch deep in the jungle. The tour includes a canoe adventure, exploring a little side river of the Chavon and a fruit trail leading you over our exciting hanging bridge. Those who are less active can spend a relaxing time in the jacuzzi with splendid views high above the river. This tour (6 hours) combines breathtaking natural scenery with fun...
SeavisTours owns the Tanama Jungle Ranch..... A paradise on the banks of the river Chavon with the largest butterfly garden of the island, a hummingbird pavilion, an easy but exciting rainforest trail and a 'touching' reptile display. This is a half day tour (4 hours) to explore the Dominican Rainforest and its inhabitants... And the excursion starts and end with a marvelous river cruise on our traditional river boat!
The taxi fares from the cruise port to Bayahibe (25 minutes) and back will be arranged by "TAXI CASA DE CAMPO". This is an independent company. As soon as you leave the ship, you'll see the coordinator of the taxi association with a sign "TAXI CASA DE CAMPO". Please note that on the port grounds the staff (pretends to) doesn't know "Seavis" or the transfer code. Ask for "TAXI CASA DE CAMPO" while on the port grounds and you will be guided to the parking of this taxi company.
Depending on which excursion you have booked with us you will get a TRANSFER CODE together with your confirmation email. Please remember the TRANSFER CODE and when arriving at the parking of TAXI CASA DE CAMPO please provide the transfer code to the drivers, so you will get into the right taxi!!
The costs for the round trip taxi fare is $15pp for excursions starting in Bayahibe and us$7pp for the Chavon River excursions. The taxi fees are payable in cash directly to the taxi driver on the way back to the port. We'll make sure the taxis are on time for the return fare, so you don't miss the ship...
