Climb aboard for an awesome snorkeling adventure in Roatan! Explore the famed Cordelia Banks and it's beautiful marine life.
You will meet your guide outside your Roatan cruise port and board your air-conditioned transportation. Enjoy the scenic 25-minute drive to the Cordelia Banks. Dubbed as The Jewel of the Caribbean by marine scientists, Cordelia Banks was also 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, 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, 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 excursion.
After your snorkel, your crew will provide you with some snacks created with the 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 port.
You will not want to pass up this memorable experience!
Unforgettable snorkeling experience
Hands down, the best snorkeling experience ever! Never have I ever seen so many species of coral! There were gardens and gardens of coral. The site is very preserved and I hope it stays as is. Please make sure to bring your reef-friendly sunscreen and do not touch the coral!

ATTN: TO ALL SNORKELERS OUT THERE!
All snorkelers out there! For a unique snorkel experience, YOU MUST VISIT Cordelia Banks. We got an awesome deal from shore excursioneer. We called them for recommendation and Karina recommended this snorkel site.
When we arrived to Roatan, we met our guide across the street from outside the pier. We waited a few minutes and off we were! Short ride but very scenic and our driver was friendly. We arrived to the location anxious for our snorkeling experience. Our guide had snorkeling gear for us.
We are kind of new to the sport and have visited a few sites but this has been our favorite so far. We learned that unfortunately the Stag Horn Coral is endangered but here, it's thriving with this and other coral species! We saw so many fish too! Truly an incredible and unforgettable experience.
