If you want to explore the best of Roatan’s underwater sites then the Roatan South Side Snorkel Excursion is the one for you. Board a boat with a maximum capacity of 16 guests, making this an intimate excursion. The snorkel will be guided, making safety a priority. First, you will snorkel one of the famous sites close to French Cay and then you will visit one of two of the best beach clubs on the south side.
Once your cruise ship has docked in Roatan you will meet your guide at a convenient location right outside of your Roatan pier. Board you comfortable transportation and enjoy the quick 15-minute drive south to French Cay. You may choose to bring along your own snorkel equipment or you will be fitted with gear upon your arrival.
Once aboard your comfortable 30-foot boat you will only have a short ride to the snorkel location, French Cay is known for fantastic visibility. Depending on the weather, you will be brought to one of the following locations: French Cay Marine Park, Coco View Reef Wall, Prince Albert Shipwreck or Big French Cay. The captain will make the decision. Your snorkeling crew will show you how to use your equipment and assist you into the water for a great guided snorkel. They will take you over the best spots and point out the sea life along the way. Note that snorkeling is from the boat, not the shore so you will not be able to stand up in the water. Bottle water is available on the boat.
All of the locations are equally stunning, full of various marine life and coral formations. You will have 1 to 1.5 hours of guided snorkeling, giving you ample time to explore the area. Hard corals, black coral, sponges of all kinds and gorgonia decorate the walls of the Reef Wall. Keep your eyes open for seahorses, juvenile spotted drums, anemones, fire worms and lion fish at French Cay Marine Park! Keep an eye out in the blue for passing harmless Spotted Eagle Rays!
After your snorkel adventure has come to an end you will be assisted back aboard your boat and brought to one of two fantastic beach clubs. Parrot Tree Plantation or Big French Cay (depending on the crowds). You will spend an hour at the beach, both locations have services such as restaurants, bars, tables and lounge chairs to relax at, not to mention the spectacular beach to enjoy! You may choose to make food and drink purchases.
At the end of your excursion, you will be brought back to your transportation and returned directly to your Roatan cruise ship pier. Fins up for this excellent snorkel adventure!
