I am going to Punta Cana this June 2010 - Bahia Principe. How long of a ride is it to get to Bayahibe to catch the boat to Isla Saona? And is this the only place to catch a boat. Do any boats leave from punta cana/bavaro area?

    I think it takes about 40 minutes. Let me check that out and come back to you.

    Thanks, any help you can offer is great. I've heard it takes about 2 hours by bus. I hope this isn't the case. Really want to go but not if it's 4 hours roundtrip by bus than 45 minute boat ride.

    I made enquiries and unfortunately it takes about 3 hours from PC/Bávaro to Isla Saona, about 2 hours by bus to Bayahibe and then the boat trip :(

    From what I've heard, the boats don't leave from anywhere but Bayahibe :( sorry. The thing about PC/Bávaro is that they're as far east as they can be.

    The ride from Punta Cana to Bayahibe is between one hour an half to 2 hours depending which hotel you´re in and how many stops they have to make before actually heading to Bayahibe. You can reserve this excursion on line in places such as www.corextras.com which is a web page for excursions in punta cana.
