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, snorkel 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 thru 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 ages.

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 of 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 is 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.

Maximum guest weight for Horseback Riding is 300 Lbs (136Kg). Guests will be weighed on site. Those who are overweight will not be allowed to participate in the horseback ride and will lose all money paid. All others in the group must give 48 hours prior notice to cancel and must pay the balance.

We loved everything about this tour!!
     5/5 Visited in April 2018

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 in 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)

We had an incredible day enjoying the natural beauty of Roatan. First, our guide took us on a small fishing boat between the mangrove channels and saw frigate birds, crabs, ray and lots of tiny baby fish. Then we had fun at the horse riding and snorkel, it is a great combo! We both really enjoyed it.

Fabulous and quiet!
     5/5 Visited in 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.
