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 lionfish at French Cay Marine Park! Keep an eye out for 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 the northeast shore of the island. You will spend an hour at the beach, the location has 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!

Loved this excursion. It was our favorite of all of our excursion. Ronald was an amazing tour guide the reef was some of the most beautiful I have ever seen. We enjoyed that they allowed all of the snorkelers to go at their own pace and skill level. The equipment was nice clean and good working order. Our family chose not to do beach afterward and Ronald took us out to lunch. It was amazing authentic Honduran food. So very good. They even emailed us pics that they took on their go pro. FANTASTIC excursion. Shore Excursioneer supports the local community. Will always book through them in future.

Very Enjoyable Snorkeling Experience Knoxville, TN
Excellent Snorkel Opportunity
     4/5 Visited in December 2017

Our ship arrived 2 hours earlier than scheduled, but Robert and Jim scrambled to meet us shortly after we arrived in port (meet outside the port gates). They were delightful hosts and gave us a great snorkel adventure off the Roatan Reefs (two different areas). They are knowledgeable on the ecology and marine life. The pictures we were given were a nice added value to the experience. Neither my husband nor I thought Parrot Beach was the greatest; however, after a long time in the water, we enjoyed just resting in the lounge chairs. All in all, great service and great guides with friendly guys who clearly love what they do and want their clients to have a good experience on Roatan. The beach experience was the only reason I didn't give five stars for the overall rating. the French beach may have been better.

Great Excursion!
     5/5 Visited in February 2018

We thoroughly enjoyed the snorkeling at French Cay. (Tour guides) are the best. They met us at the cruiseship (Norwegian Getaway) in a new 4X4, waving a sign with our name on it. Half an hour later, we were in the shallow depths of a crystal-clear reef, teeming with fish. Probably the best value water excursion in Roatan. I'd skip the beach break portion next time. It was a bad road to a struggling beach resort. Instead head back to the ship for lunch. You've already enjoyed an underwater bargain!

Fun fun fun day in Roatan!
     5/5 Visited in August 2017

This tour is for everyone. It includes clean snorkeling gear and a visit to a beautiful reef. There were so many fish and the water was so clear perfect for awesome pictures. Loved the beach break afterwards at the Big French Key beach club. It is very clean and the food was great. We decided to spend the rest of the day there and we just took a cab back to our terminal (at our own expense) This tour was definitely worth it and recommend it if Roatan is a port of call in your itineray.

We love snorkeling in Roatan
     5/5 Visited in May 2017

Been to Roatan a couple of times but usually visit the east side. This tour took us to the south were it's more private. The boat has a capacity for about 18 to 20 guests so it was a small group and everyone had a great time. Roatan is one of our favorite islands and we love snorkeling. It has the best reefs to explore. We visited the parrot tree beach club for some drinks after the snorkeling. The have great service and has a kids pool. Prices were excellent for our family of 6.

Great tour for a great price
     5/5 Visited in March 2017

Our tour guide was already waiting for us so it was a hassle free experience from the get go. We took a small boat ride to a small island for our snorkeling portion of the tour. We are new to the sport and were not prepared but they had snorkeling gear ready and our guide was really helpful. It was pretty easy to snorkel once you get the hang of it. The underwater view is amazing. So many coral and fish. It was a great experience. We visited the beach club and ordered drinks and appetizers. We had so much fun. Great tour for a great price.
