Your friendly, English speaking snorkel excursion staff will greet you outside your Roatan cruise terminal (Coxen Hole and Port of Roatan Mahogany Bay) and get you on your way for your Roatan Snorkel and Mayan Princess Resort Cruise Excursion. The drive to the Dive and Snorkel Center, which is a short 20 minute journey from the pier at the city center (Coxen Hole) and about 30 minutes from the pier at Mahogany Bay (Round trip is about 1 hour).
After a brief orientation at the Dive Center, you will be introduced to your snorkel guide and head out to one of the snorkel boats. The snorkel boats are purpose built for the Caribbean reef and can hold up to 6 or 25 snorkelers. On board the team will offer assistance with equipment if requested and provide a thorough briefing for the boat and snorkel sites.
The maximum group size for each snorkel adventure is 10 snorkelers to one certified PADI Divemaster/Instructor, so no need to worry about overcrowding in the water. The travel time to reach the snorkel sites by boat will be no more than 10 minutes, as the Barrier Reef is very close to the shore.
The snorkeling shore excursion will take place on the largest barrier reef system in the Northern Hemisphere. This particular area of the reef system you will be snorkeling is extremely healthy and in pristine condition. The snorkel sites are known for their abundance of beautiful corals and extraordinary reef formations, creating astonishing "swim-throughs", and ledges.
Common marine life experienced on the reef includes turtles, lobsters, stingrays, eels, king crabs, and barracuda, as well as a variety of tropical reef fish such as damsels, butterfly fish, pork fish, parrot fish and schools of Creole wrasse and blue tangs. Lion Fish have also invaded the Caribbean in recent years, so have your cameras ready to take photos of these amazing colorful predators as they proudly display their plumes.
After the spectacular snorkeling part of this shore excursion in Roatan you will also have access to the gorgeous 5 Star Mayan Princess Beach Resort for a beach break. You may use the lounge chairs, pool, beach area, restroom, showers, etc. Food and beverages are not included but may be purchased on site. (The snorkeling is approximately 3 hours).
The transportation will have you back at the pier one hour before your ship's departure or you can return to your ship at any time at your own expense.
All of these Roatan snorkel shore excursion boats are equipped with first aid, oxygen units, life vests, marine radios and comfortable ladders for getting in and out of the water. All our Roatan snorkel shore excursions are guided by a fully certified PADI divemaster or instructor. There is a suggested $5.00usd per person donation for the Marine Park.
