You will meet your snorkel shore excursion guide outside your Roatan cruise port and board your air-conditioned transportation. Enjoy the scenic 25-minute drive to the Cordelia Banks. Dubbed The Jewel of the Caribbean by marine scientists, Cordelia Banks has also been named the first Site of Wildlife Importance by the Honduran government. This is your lucky opportunity to take in the beauty and see why it earned these titles.
Unlike many areas of the Caribbean, this reef system is extremely healthy. It has a huge abundance of critically endangered Staghorn Coral. You might also see some of the large schools of groupers, and snappers, and if you are lucky, you might be able to spot gray reef sharks from a safe distance far below you! Your guide will provide you with your gear, and show you how to use it before leading you in the water for a 1-hour breathtaking adventure. It is important to remember to bring your eco-friendly sunscreen as this is a protected area and you will not want to damage the coral by applying the usual sunscreen. The snorkeling is done directly from the boat and guests will not be able to touch bottom - please read over the restrictions before booking this Roatan snorkeling cruise excursion.
After your snorkel, your crew will provide you with some snacks created with delicious local fare, including ceviche and seasonal fruits. Take in the stunning view of the island on your ride back to the dock, where you will board your transportation for the return trip to your Roatan cruise ship port.
