We booked the 3 Snorkeling Stop tour with Christopher Tours, and LOVED it! They met us outside the port area, and after a 30 minute drive in a nice air conditioned van, which in itself was very neat to see the island, they dropped us off at their private dock/restaurant area, with a little beach with lounge chairs and umbrellas. They took our lunch order, then we hopped on the snorkel boat. The snorkeling was amazing, the best I've ever done! Roatan's reef is beautiful! Then we had lunch at their beach restaurant, fresh fried snapper, rice and beans, fried plantains, salad, and the option to purchase cheap drinks at their bar. We would definitely do this exact same excursion again in a heartbeat! Read Less

Roatan: I was most looking forward to this port because I'm a sucker for cute animals and wanted to go to the sloths! I booked an independent excursion directly through Daniel Johnson's. Best excursion of the whole trip. More on that in a second. I really liked how close the port was to the dock - basically as soon as you get off, you're right there. But there is a lot of construction, so even though it's small, it's a bit hard to navigate. I found my way out of the port, but had to go through a tunnel of very aggressive tour people. By far the most aggressive of the trip. Found the Daniel Johnson's people and waited for transportation. They called me, and it ended up being me and 1 other guy being driven around by essentially a private driver! She took us to the sloth and monkey sanctuary, which is a little bit of a drive. I got to cuddle a sloth, which was fantastic, and then went into a group of monkeys in their enclosure. They tell you to take everything out of your pockets before entering because the monkeys have sticky fingers, and they weren't lying! The other guy forgot his glasses and money in his front pocket and as quickly as we entered, a monkey named Mike picked his pocket, grabbed his glasses and went straight up the enclosure! Once we were done with the animals, they led us to the second part of our trip, which was snorkleing. I expected another group to join us, but again it was just us two - and a snorkel guide. The best part was Daniel Johnson himself was our boat captain! He gave us the option of going to a calmer, more protected area or out to where the reef drops off. We chose the dropoff. Once we got to it, the guide led us through a private snorkel tour for about 45 minutes. It was fantastic! The reef there is so alive and lush, and he did a great job. This was probably one of the best parts of my trip! Once we were back, our same driver dropped us back off right at the port. Read Less

Snorkeling at Maya Key was amazing. Very calm waters and rich reef. So many species to look at and very close to shore. The beach itself was not sandy and not as nice as some of the other beaches but the snorkeling more than made it for it

Disappointed in the reef.
Disappointed in the reef. Sadly, the coral we saw was dead. Some fish, but no turtles. After you've snorkeled reefs in the South Pacific, I guess other reefs can seem disappointing. Climate change is killing the reefs; so sad.
