Private Excursion

What’s a PRIVATE EXCURSION?

It is the only way to get a VIP service.

In the Dominican Republic, mostly in Bavaro,Cap Cana Punta Cana and Bayahibe, the VIP term is commonly and inappropriately used.

A private excursion is a real VIP excursion.

VIP Concept

Our Concept of VIP Service is synonym of exclusivity, privacy and uniqueness.

This is why we provide a different journey, we avoid the crowd and we focus our attention to the wonders of the landscape sorrounding the islands of the National park of East, especially Saona.

What we mean, actually, goes beyond the classic concept of VIP because with our tours you will discover unspoiled places known only by locals and, besides, during certain periods of the year you will have the chance to visit the hatching of the turtles, observe the newborn starfishes and all that nature has to offer.

We will provide, as well as a luxury boat, a number of amenities and services that will make you feel like a Very Important Person.

If you have a group of friends or family and want to enjoy a stunning day on the beautiful islands located in the area of Bavaro, Punta Cana and Bayahibe, you can take advantage of our proposals of private tours for small and “not so big“ groups.

What’s the plus for our guests?

Catalinita & Saona Islands

Transfers are available from all over the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana, Bavaro and Santo Domingo Area
Minimum number to run the excursion: 2 (max 6)

The Catuano’s Channel has been recently closed to the boat’s flow of massive tourism, and, consequently, this tour to Catalinita can only be performed by private boat with a special permit and a with a maximum number of 6 people.

The spectacularly rich biodiversity of the Dominican Republic is reflected in this day trip to Catalinita & Saona Islands. Two amazing places in one trip, one of the most popular excursion offered by Santo Domingo Vacation d’Elite.

Leaving Bayahibe aboard of our private boat, you will cross the Catuano’s Channel towards Catalinita Island, a protected natural area devoid of inhabitants.

It is not unusual that during the passage through the channel, you can see dolphins in the waves.

Once in Catalinita, you can stroll the magnificent endless beaches looking for conch shells or snorkel in the sea swimming among the corals and the amazing starfish.

The next stop of this trip is Saona, a much larger island just in front of the mainland. This island has exquisite beaches and endless waving palm trees.

A real tropical dream.

Things to do off the coast of the Dominican Republic(H2)

Aside from resting and soaking in the sun-kissed warm pristine beaches, travelers can discover the wonderful snorkeling adventures of Catalinita and Saona.

The coral reef sites are beautiful to see as well as they reflect the natural wonder of Catalinita, which is the smallest in the national park. It is also known as the “island of a million shells”.

during the trip, we pass in front of Dominicus beach to reach the “Bahia de las Calderas”, which is a huge mangroves garden and home of the impressive frigate bird.
