Start this Roatan Nature and Sightseeing Combo Excursion by meeting with your excursion guide outside your Roatan cruise terminal (Coxen Hole and Port of Roatan Mahogany Bay). You will then board your air-conditioned vehicle and make your way towards the East End of Roatan island and more during this fun Roatan Excursion filled with island sightseeing, native boat experience, horseback ride, snorkeling, and beach break!

During the 45-minute sightseeing drive, your knowledgeable Roatan Shore Excursion guide will entertain you with stories of Roatan's colorful history which includes Indians, pirates, slaves, and buried treasures. On a clear day, you may well see shipwrecks on the coast too.

Your panoramic ride will take you through the fishing towns of French Harbor and French Cay before heading up into the mountains for great photo opportunities of this lovely jungle island off the Honduras coast. You will arrive at Oakridge, where you will discover a traditional Caribbean fishing village where the houses are built on stilts. Shrimp and lobster boats bob up and down nearby in the clear Caribbean.

At this point, you will board an authentic Cayuco boat, to cruise through tropical mangroves on a canal dug to connect the harbors and bays. A Cayuco is a rustic, motorized canoe making this a true experience of what the locals use in their everyday lives. Make sure to keep an eye out for wildlife along the banks including a wide variety of birds. The Cayuco boat ride takes about 1 hour. You can also choose to stop at the famous Hole in the Wall restaurant afterward. This is a traditional stop; the restaurant offers tasty burgers, fresh seafood, cold beer, and more available at an additional cost.

Then, your air-conditioned transportation will be waiting to take you on a 30-minute ride to the Big Bight Beach and Restaurant. This is your Roatan horseback riding excursion base camp. You will be matched with a horse that suits your riding skills and weight, and after brief instructions, you will be riding your horse to a secluded beach. Your Roatan horseback riding guide will lead you on a calm pace ride along scenic roads and through the green rainforest. Then, time allowing, enjoy a slow-paced ride on the beach along the water. Sometimes, weather and time permitting, you may well head into the hilltops for stunning views. Your ride will take about 45 minutes and small children can ride along with their parents or a guide. Please check the restrictions for more information regarding weight and age.

Once back on Big Bight Beach, it's time to cool down by snorkeling out over the Meso-American Barrier Reef, the second largest barrier reef in the world so you are in for quite a treat. The boat is docked right at the beach's pier and it is a fast ride out to the coral reefs. Your guide will provide the snorkel equipment including a life jacket (optional). Your snorkel excursion guide will point out areas of interest and it's not unusual to spot stingrays, porkfish, and king crabs along with the myriad of colorful tropical fish. The water has amazing visibility, so you are sure to see it all. The snorkel portion of this Roatan shore excursion takes about 30 minutes and it is not necessary to have previous experience or be a good swimmer, just feel comfortable in the water, relax, and enjoy this great Roatan nature combo cruise excursion. Please note that guests will be snorkeling from the boat in the deeper water and may not be able to touch the bottom.

Then, you'll find yourself back on the dock in Big Bight Beach, enjoy 30 minutes to catch your breath, buy a cold drink, or simply enjoy the view at this pristine Roatan beach. The Big Bight Beach Restaurant offers tasty traditional dishes and fresh seafood for purchase. Lounge chairs, restrooms, and other facilities are available on-site at no additional cost.

When your Roatan Mangrove Cruise, Horseback Riding Beach, and Snorkel Excursion are completed, you climb aboard your transportation for the return trip to your Roatan cruise ship pier. Sit back and relax as you are driven, once more, by the beauty that is Roatan Island.

The maximum guest weight for Horseback Riding is 300 Lbs (136 kg). Guests will be weighed on-site.

Mangroves were interesting but it poured and we only had a sheet of plastic covering all of us.Talk about Covid concerns.Horses were completely exhausted and due to waiting on other tours to come back, it cut ours short. Sat for over an hour and did nothing.Felt it was a complete waste of money and precious time.

The mangrove boat tour was excellent. We were a bit doubtful when it started, but we ended up really enjoying it. The horse back riding was nice and not too long and the kids loved the snorkeling. Would definitely do again

We really enjoyed our time as a family of 4 on this trip with our 10 and 14-year-old. We did a little bit of everything from boating around the island, going through the amazing Mangroves, doing snorkeling - amazing, horseback riding which our kids' had never done and loved, and just eating lobster on the beach. Highly recommend. Nothing is to far out of anyone comfort zone. This was our 3rd time on the island but we try to do something different each time. The drive time is a bit extensive but we enjoyed George so much!

We had a good day enjoying the natural beauty of Roatan. First, Captain Alex took us on a small fishing boat between the mangrove channels. It was a great sight for sure. I was a little uneasy in the boat but after awhile felt comfortable. Then we had fun at the horse riding and snorkel, it is a great combo! Our driver Watson stayed with us the entire time & ensured we were communicated to.

Snorkeling was beautiful!
     5/5  (Visited on October 2021)
Kembron was a great guide, born and raised on the island! The water tour of the mangrove trees was cool and interesting and Captain Alex was a hoot with his booming voice! The horseback riding was fun even though I had not been on a horse for many years. NOTE: BE SURE to use bug spray! I have at least 20 fly bites/welts on my legs. My favorite part by far was the snorkeling. The coral reef is beautiful and the water is really clear, at least the day we were there. Our guides swam with us in the water to show us the more beautiful parts and let us hold massive star fish and conch shells. All in all, a great and very affordable excursion!

Our driver Shem was great. He was very friendly and accommodating and also knowledgeable about the island. The mangroves were the first stop after a long, but interesting car ride. The boat ride was so scenic going through a pretty long mangrove \"tunnel\" and through a few other secluded spots. The horseback ride was great! The horses are very well behaved and were calm the entire time. One of them had a baby that followed her around the entire time which was very sweet. The guides took us into the water and offered to take pictures whenever you wanted them. Snorkeling was last, it was a short boat ride away from where the horses were. The water was very clear and there were lots of fish to see. We spent a while looking around an old ship wreck covered in coral. It was awesome. This was an awesome day filled with tons of stuff to experience. Make sure you tip everyone separately! This is how the locals make a living and they work hard for us.

We book this excursion for our day in roatan Our driver creg did a great job with picking us up and taking us to each location. He was very personable and talked to my husband on our way to each destination. He got us there in a small van for our group of 7. Van was Air-conditioned and clean and He let us stop off at a few beautiful spot to take pictures and just did a great job. Our captain of the mangrove cruise was great while we were on the boat trip. He did a great job and the scenery was beautiful. Our next destination was the horseback riding. The area we rode was like a neighborhood and as trail riders our selves it was biutiful,we ride to the ocean which of course was beautiful. The guides was great take good care of us My kids enjoyed and my son-in-law It was enjoyable to us Our snorkel trip was awesome and we got out by the sunken ship and had a really good time. The guides were good and helped out if you needed anything. The food and drinks were awesome at the restaurant where you snorkel and ride. We ordered our food before we left to snorkel and they had it ready by the time we got back. Overall a really great excursion and Roatan is Beautiful we highly recommend this excursion

The experience is a full day of fun, learning, and nature. All the staff was friendly, attentive and professional, they were waiting for us on time and explained to us the details of what we were going to go all day. The cayuco boat is such an experience, be ready to feel some bugs around you but is part of the tour. I was able to be in a 100% natural site and learn about a different lifestyle. The horse back just lovely, I was feeling nervous but the guided assisted me all the time. Finally, end up the day with a nice beach break. I would highly recommend.

A great way to spend the day in Roatan - Don’t miss this
     5/5  (Visited on January 2019)
This was a fabulous adventure on our first trip to Roatan. We were met by our driver and tour guide - Cameron and Allan at a very easy find location off the ship. They were from (tour operator). They were both super nice. We were provided with amazing insights to Honduras as we made our way to our first stop at the Mangrove Cruise. We were free to ask questions and were provided great answers when we did. I wasn’t sure what to expect on the Mangrove Cruise, but it was a lot of fun. We were met a dock by a great boat operator. He gave us a tour of lots of different homes and sites. He then brought us into the mangroves. I wasn’t sure what a mangrove was, but now know it is a tree, just in case you don’t know. It was absolutely beautiful going through the tunnel of mangroves. My husband and I were at the back of the boat, but the driver offered to take pictures of the mangrove tunnel for us, so we didn’t miss out. After leaving the boat tour, it was only a short drive to the horseback riding and snorkeling. We had a great right on the horses learning about the area we were riding in. It was fun to ride along the beach. There was a nice beach restaurant that served great food and drinks. Allan had mentioned at the beginning of the tour something about a monkey and sloth reserve and if we had time, we could talk about stopping there. He did say that it would cost an additional $10 each to get into the reserve. After lunch, we discussed the couple that was on the tour with us and had just met that day if we all wanted to go snorkeling or stop at the monkey and sloth reserve. We all agreed to go the monkey and sloth reserve. BEST DECISION OF THE DAY. If you go on this tour and get a chance to stop there, don’t think twice about it - just to it. It is a small reserve and you can tell that those who were there love the animals that they are working with and care about there well being. We got to feed the monkey, interact with the macaws and best of all, we actually got to hold the sloths! It was an amazing experience. Allan and Cameron asked us each stop how we liked it and truly cared that we were hanging a great time. I would highlighy recommend this tour to anyone.

Remarkable is probably an understatement. The tour guide Alan was very knowledgeable about his island, Roatan. Together with the driver, they allowed enough time at all stops for photos, shopping, sea bathing horse back riding boat ride snorkeling and eating. The highly recommended restaurant lived up to the type. the lobsters and fried snapper were super delicious. Good job, guys. Hope we can do this again.

After seeing all the good reviews my friend and I decided to book this excursion we spent the whole day together, stopping along the way and learning about the different cultures and interesting facts about the island. We particularly enjoy the horse back ridding and the tour boat in the mangroves, and snorkeling. This tour is REALLY interactive, and be ready to have some fun. Creg our guide was passionate about his island, extremely knowledgeable, and entertaining!! Thanks Creg for this wonderful experience

We loved the Horse riding, Snorkeling and Mangrove Cruise
     5/5  (Visited on February 2018)
When we got off the ship we walked out of the Pier and immediately saw someone of Shore Excursioneer. She helped us very well and brought us to the Driver / Guide (Derald Sanchez #5). He is a very nice (private) driver and guide and told us a lot about Roatan, the history and people of the Island. He is a very nice, happy, helpful en positive person! He brought us to the horse riding centre and there were the horses and guides ready and already waiting for us. Very nice and helpfull guides and sweet, trustfull horses. The horses are not to big, so people can not weight too many kilo's... Not above 85 kg is my opinion. Unfortunately, because we had only above 50 dollars (not smaller bills), we could not give the guides a tip :-( I still regret that very much, because the guides were running (in the head) with us and made really nice pictures/film with our camera and explained a lot. One thing we did not like was all the plastic and garbage next to the beach... Must be cleaned by locals is our opinion! Doesn't fit in nature! We also walked in the Sea with the horses. When we came back, the boat was waiting for us. We went in the boat and had a great snorkeling tour. The coral is not what is used to be.... But still great to see. In this place we did not see any turtles or Stingray. Still we enjoyed it. One note: please tell people that go on excursion not to stand at the coral with there flippers and don't touch the coral... The reef is in a pretty bad shape...The guides must bring over that message. Also good to take money with you so you can buy a lunch (not to big dollar bills, because then they can not give you a change). After the snorkeling tour we went by car to a small harbour. The boat guide was already waiting for us to take us to the Mangrove for a nice boat trip. The boat guide told us great things about the waterhouses and also this trip was very nice. We loved this excursion very much and we recommend it highly! Make sure you have small dollars to give tips :-) They deserve it! (Family of 2 adults, 2 kids - 11 & 12 years)

Fabulous and quiet!
     5/5  (Visited on September 2016)
Mangroves were beautiful and our tour guide was great. He even had to buy our snacks on the trip since we failed to bring small bills with us. He showed us his little village and told us all about local life. The horseback ride was also beautiful. The guides were very professional and took care to not let this short, fat lady fall off the horse! The description was a bit misleading on the website. It made it sound like we were going to actually ride our horse on the beach which is not really what happened. We did ride on a gorgeous trail through a resort area that bordered a low sea wall and a golf course. It was still a beautiful ride. We enjoyed our meal and appreciated the quiet! It was so much more relaxing than the ship excursions we have done in the past. We also met a very hospitable monkey at the departure area for The horseback ride. I must say that the monkey was a highlight of the trip since I am an animal lover! Don't be nervous about booking outside the cruise line. Just read and follow the excursion instructions and it is worth it!!

Fort Myers, Florida Creg ,was SUPER,for the last few years we have been booking on our own and not through the ship, NO NEED TO WORRY,is the same venders as the ship uses. Had a great time horse back riding and riding in a dugout through the mangroves,even though we are around them in south florida,just a way of life in Oakridge, Honduras,getting around by boat.Had a snorkel trip on this excursion and had time for it, but miscalculated ships time ,My fault,and had Creg bring us back early, Would use them again. PS.,I need to learn how to shift gears on a horse, lol and great small group snorkeling so you will not get kicked in the head.
