This was a semi private tour in a very small group. Our guide Ronald was fantastic!!!!! He was a professional from the moment he picked us up at the pier unit the time he dropped us off. We played with monkeys and sloths, swam at a beautiful beach, and snorkeled by guide for an hour. A very nice tour. Read Less

Snorkeling at Maya Key was amazing.
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.

The Jolly Roger Snorkel Trip, Roatan, Honduras: We've been on four or five of these type excursions, but this one was by far the best. The crew and ship were great & super friendly and fun. The snorkel equipment was the best we've seen on such a trip & it makes a big difference. Additionally, the reef area used was beautiful and the water was very calm and full of wildlife. Additionally, they had great food and drink following the snorkeling - a nice surprise. Read Less

Then Jaime called an Independent Professional Diving and Snorkeling Co. A youngman,Kenny, not the same person at the Monkey Business, very experienced took us to a beautiful multicolored Coral Reef with Multicolored diverse species of fish. I informed Kenny I wasn't a very confident swimmer and snorkeler. Kenny shadowed me for the whole entire hour. Some places were shallow and Kenny carefully and physically pulled me from the Shallow Coral. My wife said,"This is by far, hands down the best snorkeling we have ever done!" We saw several multicolored fish species and diverse multicolored Coral. Kenny tried to take us deeper so we could see a Lobster. We told him we weren't ready to take our snorkeling tube under water yet. So Kenny dove down with our Action Camera and took a pic of the Lobster for us. "This was definitely hands down our best Snorkeling we have ever done!" I thought,"This is why people love snorkeling." Kenny gave us personalized one to one service. Awesome Fantastic Experience.

We booked a snorkeling tour through Roatan Ocean Adventures at the French Cay. Most people head directly towards the West Bay beach areas but roads are under construction and travel time is at least 45 minutes plus each way. This was only a 20 minute ride so we got to see some of the island which was a perk. We were picked up at the port (our guide had to wait an hour since ship's entry was delayed) but he was there. Took us by air conditioned van to the French Cay and we snorkeled for an hour. There was a surprise at the end of the tour - a privately owned cage on the island with 5-6 bengal tigers which we boated right up to. Trip advisor and cruise critic both recommended this tour. You can also tour the monkeys with this snorkeling trip but we opted not to. Read Less

Loved this West Bay snorkel day. Booked independently trough Banarama. The snorkeling is truly wonderful right off the beach. As you face the water, turn left and walk down the beach towards "the rock". Then walk right in the water. Bananarama provided armed security at our beach chairs, transportation and a drink. The RC excursion "beach" is about 100 yards down the way... Remember though, when you book on your own you are booking local time, not ship time. Read Less

Jolly Roger Catamaran Snorkeling and Lunch - Well organized company, excellent snorkeling, although it seemed to go by too fast! Lunch was provided right after snorkeling with rum punch. Lunch was fair...chicken, fresh watermelon and slaw were good, pasta salad had a super strong herb seasoned dressing that made it inedible. Overall, I would have enjoyed more time in the water, but the crew was fun, encouraging dancing on deck and the snorkeling was fantastic. Read Less

Like all other reviewers, this was a remarkable excursion. The kayak out through the the mangroves was very relaxing, and the snorkeling was spectacular. Our guide kindly pointed out fish we would probably not have seen on our own such as a lion fish, large angel fish, and a sting ray. Barb was a charming hostess and great storyteller. Her love of nature and natural remedies was very inspiring. I only wish that we had more time at the lodge as it was a beautiful oasis and we had several hours left before having to return to the ship. Perhaps an option to pay to stay longer could be included in the future? Read Less
