Spectacular beaches, stunning reefs and beachside communities

This tour gives you a little taste of the best Roatan has to offer: culture, white sandy beaches, and stunning coral reefs. Before we hit the beach we will pass through several island communities where we will have time to shop, learn some of the island culture and history, and meet some local people.
After that we will head to West Bay beach, voted one of the top 10 most beautiful beaches in the world. From here we will head to the quaint beach side community of West End where we will have a few hours to snorkel, sunbathe and paddleboard in the calm clear waters of Half Moon Bay. The snorkeling here is some of the best on the island with the coral reef just a few hundred meters from shore. Bring your UW camera and expect to see turtles, rays, lobster, conch, sea stars and so much more!

A Recent Review of this tour

Our tour with Steve was terrific. It was by far the best excursion we took on our cruise. Steve is super nice and very knowledgeable about Roatan. The beach where we snorkeled and paddled was away from most of the cruise crowds so it was quite peaceful. The snorkeling was good, not great, but the weather could have affected that. We had a great time despite some periodic rain. As an extra bonus the beach bar on that bay was amazing! They had excellent food and drinks. Highly recommended!
