Tour description provided by Viator

While in port on Roatan, leave the crowds behind with a half-day shore excursion to a private beach! Enjoy a snorkeling tour along part of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, the second largest coral reef system in the world and kayaking through mangroves!

Roatan's reefs are part of the world's second largest coral reef system – the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef – and you’ll be awed by some of the best snorkeling to be had anywhere!

After pickup from your Roatan cruise port, your guide will drive your small group on a brief west island tour. When you reach your awaiting snorkel boat, hop aboard and enjoy a snack as you receive instructions on how to protect the coral reef and preserve its abundant marine life.

Once your boat arrives at the reef on Roatan’s northern shore, slip into the water and follow your guide on an extended snorkel tour with your small group. As you glide above black and fire coral, your guide will point out an assortment of brightly colored fish, sea sponges, sea fans, stingrays and eagle rays. Watch for schools of baby squid as well as elusive sea turtles and seahorses amid the brilliant hues.

When you've worked up an appetite, you’ll be dropped off at a dock leading to a quiet, private beach just off the beaten path, where an island-style lunch and complimentary drinks will be served at the restaurant and bar. Enjoy full use of the facilities, including showers and changing rooms. Then, relax on a beach lounger in the sun or the shade of the almond and coconut trees, or explore more of the reef in a kayak. You'll have access to nature trails, an infinity pool overlooking the ocean, volleyball, bocce ball plus free wi-fi!

Leaving the crowds behind, you’ll get a true taste of island paradise before drop-off at the Roatan cruise port.
