This version of Saona, with a sailing boat catamaran, is offered to people wishing to enjoy a tour with a very small group (max 24 people), accompanied by the Quetzal crew!

We board the catamaran sailing boat around 9am and then go at the snorkeling place of Catuano, where, with your guide, you will discover a lot of tropical fishes!
The snorkeling session is accompanied by our guide Quetzal, certified diving instructor!
Your guide will be there to show you the different species of fish but also to ensure your safety
After snorkeling we will enjoy one of the most gorgeous, turquoise-water, white-sand beach of Dominican Republic for around 1 hour and a half.
