I don't think I was prepared for the encounters we had while at Maya Key. We did the tour of the animals and it was so cool. My son loved the parrots but the monkeys were his favorite. We even had the opportunity to do an encounter with them! Stinky and Cocoa were a huge hit! The beach is great,... More

This was one great cruise excursion! The island is an animal sanctuary with interactive things to do. There is a great pool and wonderful beach with beautiful views. There is a long pier with easy access to a wonderful place to snorkel at the reef. The lunch served was authentic island food, very delicious and the beverages were cold. I... More

We booked this through Roatan Vacation Rentals. We took a boat over. The beach is lovely and there is a very nice long dock on which you can snorkel off the end of. The price for the day $30 per person included lunch and a tour of the rescued animals and fake Mayan Ruins. We were there on a Monday... More

Maya Key is a private island with beaches, water activities, and a sanctuary of rescued animals. The island is a great place to spend the day, guests are able to take part in whatever activities appeal to them (some have fees). The beaches are very clean, and there are also tree shaded areas adjacent to the beach. There is a... More

My husband and I loved this cruise tour! The island is beautiful, clean, and the people were very friendly. There were plenty of beach lounge chairs for everyone. Snorkeling was at the end of a long dock with a young man helping people. Not for beginners as you need to follow an underwater trail to get to the reef. (There... More

I loved Maya Key, we visited here while on our Carnival Cruise. My teen son (15) and I loved every moment we spent here, and still talk about it 6 months later. The service was amazing, snorkeling (although seas were a little rougher then an overprotective mom would of liked) was amazing, food, drinks, swimming...all amazing. Best part, meeting Ting,...

People... This is an absolute must for an excursion when visiting Roatan Honduras. Couple suggestions: Take a phone picture of the schedule of activity board and take a phone picture of the map of the island. If you have your own snorkel equipment, bring it! The price for equipment is high at $35 a person. The snorkeling is wonderful once... More

We booked a trip to Maya Key through our cruise ship (Caribbean Princess) and were very glad we did! This was our favorite excursion that we took during our Western Caribbean cruise. The island is an easy bus/boat ride from where the cruise ships dock. The island is has a small animal sanctuary that houses Monkeys, Birds, some big cats,... More

We were fortunate to book the Maya Key excursion when we first boarded the Norwegian Sun for our 7 day Western Caribbean cruise. Availability is limited and we were originally told the excursion was filled when I tried booking it on-line a week before our cruise. I am very happy that I did not let that stop me from asking...
