Our Saona Island Excursion for cruise passengers:

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 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.....

The jungle and the river tours:

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.

Read the excursion reviews:

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 forum and on We are known for a perfect organization and for expert guides. However we are forced to work with the -by the port authorities contracted- taxi company for the transfers to Bayahibe. This sometimes leads to confusions and communication problems, please follow the instructions (see below) and if you are unsure what is happening while in the port, please phone us right away!

Available excursions that fit the time frame of the ships:

Catuano Beach on Saona IslandThe Saona Carnival 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!

The transfer from the cruise port to our La Romana Excursions:

Taxi Casa the Campo:

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.

The Transfer Code:

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!!

Paying for the transfer:

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...


Here you see a Google Earth image with the view of the Cruise Port: La Romana Cruise Port View; the Taxi coordinator should be on the indicated spot. If she is not there for some reason than please follow the arrows to the Taxi Information Building (top left corner of the large bus parking). Here you can download a PDF with the directions to our Seavis Visitors center in Bayahibe; you can also show this to the taxi driver if necessary.


In some cases we'll ask you for a deposit. On most port days we will be fully booked and we have to disappoint cruisers who try to book .... But we also have a relatively high number of 'no shows': people with a confirmed booking who - without any notice- don't show up on the day of the tour. 'No shows' are a great expense for us (we've prepared the boats, the food, etc), but foremost: the people we had to refuse earlier could have joined the excursion..... For this reason we might ask groups larger then 8 people for a deposit of 20%. In case you can't join the tour, just phone us or send us an email and we will refund the deposit immediately.

Have a great Caribbean cruise and take a wise decision when selecting your shore excursions.
