Took the Jolly Roger catamaran tour. It was the typical 'snorkel for an hour then eat and drink' catamaran ride. The long ride through the island to get to the boat wasn't expected since it hadn't been mentioned in any of the booking literature, and the condition of the boat itself was a little shabby. The seas were rough (no one's fault) and the crew was very attentive and friendly, but overall I've been on better. Read Less

Roatan Ocean Adventure was waiting for us just outside of the port's main exit. We just had to look for the driving holding an ROA sign. They took us and two other groups in an air conditioned minivan to their dock on the east side of the island (across the water from Big/Little French Key). They dropped the two other groups off for the sloth experience, while taking us to the dock. We did the mile long drift snorkel, which took us about 30 to 45 minutes. ROA provided mask, snorkels and fins. The fins were well used, so if you have your own bring them, but they still made the whole experience less taxing. Afterward we were driven back to the port and dropped off inside. Read Less

We did the Jolly Roger Catamaran and Snorkeling excursion and it was one of the highlights of the vacation for me. The entire staff is so friendly and helpful, they really made everyone fell comfortable. I had been snorkeling before and did not like it, but this experience change my mind. Beautiful reef with lots of wildlife swimming around. And once everyone came back to the boat, there was a yummy lunch, the rum punch was flowing, and the dance tunes were playing. Read Less

Booked through ShoreTrips - very non-descript pickup. Hand written sign, no shirt with name on it, van had no name on it, felt very sketchy. Got to drop off spot after 1 hour of driving (felt very long) only to find the captain was not there. Later learned he had someone else arrive early and we felt he had our driver delay so as these customers would not wait. Javi (first mate) was awesome - great young man, Alessandro the captain was also nice, but you could feel this was just same ole same ole for him. Never were given the opportunity to spend time on teh beach as the tour said after we snorkeled, dropped us off in West End (said driver would be there in 30 minutes) he left on his scooter and we saw no one. Driver never showed and we had to take a cab back to Mahogany Bay. Snorkeling was good and the boats equipoment was excellent, but the logistics were awful. Read Less

Signed up onboard. This experience was completely unorganized. When we finally reached the other side of the island, the guide got off the van and told us nothing. There were no boats at the dock and about 60 people trying to get on a 18 passenger boat. One of the boats broke down and the excursion fell behind schedule. Some people could not snorkel because there were not enough life jackets. The dock/boat owner was sitting around drinking beer while telling the tour guides each boat could probably spend only 15 minutes at each spot otherwise we wouldn’t make it back to port on time.

Had a local guide and taxi hired beforehand. It was like snorkeling in an aquarium: truly beautiful waters and extraordinary amount of fish. Had a day pass for Infinity Bay, which has nice pools, good lounge chairs, and clean bathrooms.

Took a little time to find where the fish were. As you face the water, go to the left side nearer the rock formation. Great for novices like us.

Our tour guide was also AMAZING. The only thing was I think we were hurried out a little sooner than expected because other groups were coming in and they needed to get us out. Either way, it was still beauitful and amazing. Read Less

Awesome excursion! We enjoyed the staff onboard the catamaran, the waters were clear and beautiful. They sent us back in vans due to the rough waters, which gave us a bonus tour of the island. Would absolutely recommend!

Daniel Johnson’s Monkey & Sloth Hang Out Was fantastic. We were a little thrown off at first because we were picked up buy a man in his personal vehicle, but he was very pleasant and gave us information about Honduras as we drove to the site. We met monkeys, sloths, and birds. After we were able to hold all these animals they took us out snorkeling. This was my favorite excursion on this trip! Read Less
