This Roatan East End Island Sightseeing, Mangroves, Iguanas and Reef Snorkel Excursion is available for cruise ship passengers arriving at Port of Roatan Coxen Hole and Mahogany Bay.
Your unique transportation will be waiting right outside your cruise terminal - an open air safari bus to give you that true island feels. Your guide will get you onboard and the fun begins. You will head out to the East End of Roatan where you will see authentic Garifuna villages (native Roatan Indians), quaint fishing towns and incredible views of the hills.
The bus will continue to the island's second largest community, French Harbor, home to shrimp boat fleets. Then it is on to French Cay where Sherman Arch's Iguana Farm is located. This is not a typical farm but rather home to over 3,000 iguanas that walk the property freely. Admission to the iguana farm is included.
Next on the route is a stop at The View, a scenic outlook for a great photo op. Then it is on to a Garifuna traditional village to you will see and learn about the island's oldest inhabitants - culture, customs, and traditions.
A motorboat is waiting at a Caribbean fishing village to take you for a guided ride through the mangroves that have grown into natural tunnels. Do not forget your cameras as there is much to capture. The mangrove tunnels open up to the Caribbean Ocean and one of the best coral reefs where you will enjoy some outstanding snorkeling. All of the gear is included. The amount of the rainbow colored tropical fish is seemingly endless!
After your snorkel, you will go to a local restaurant where you can try some of the local food and enjoy the monkeys, birds and alligators on view - cost of food and beverages is not included and optional. Time allowing, there might be a stop at the famous Parrot Tree too.
We are a group of 8, from all ages and took this private tour. It was very easy to locate the meeting point. Our guid was extremely nice, spoke very good English and was very kind. She waited for us in every point we visited and also added some stops for our request. Highly recommended! We had a great time.

Wonderful day, wonderful place!
We chose this tour to get an authentic feel of life in Roatan. We got that and so much more. We spent the day with Cynthia who was a wonderful tour guide and we quickly became friends. She was assigned to us as our personal guide as noone else had signed up for this excursion. Cynthia notonly clicked with my husband and myself, but also our 17 year old son ans 15 year old daughter. We saw so many wonderful places and I felt like we had all the time in the world. The best portion of the tour was snorkeling. This was simply the most amazing experience of our entire cruise. The boat was older and the tour guides were pretty quiet, but once we got in the water it was simply beautiful. The tour also included a iguana farm visit which was unique, but was enjoyed by our daughter. The shop was really nice there. The other tour portion that could have been shortened was the mangrove portion. Ten minutes would have been sufficient and then adding more time to snorkel would be a great idea. Cynthia made sure we got to do everything on our tour and was incredibly flexible with our time. She also took us to a wonderful place for lunch that was not part of the tour and gave us a little extra time to shop. I will never forget this day and hope to go back again and meet Cynthia again.
