This is a good place to go while in the cruise port on Roatan. It's not cheap, but you get a buffet lunch that's got some really good fried fish, and Bbq chicken. Also you get iced tea, or lemonade with your lunch. There's some animal displays that are fun to go look at. Snokeling off the end of the... More

Spent several hours here while on a cruise with my family. My kids really enjoyed seeing the different animals that were on display. The beach area was nice as well, plenty of loungers as well as an area for kids to run around and play. Food was quite good as well, the fried fish was especially tasty. And the rum... More

I spent the day here with my 5 & 6 yr. old grandkids while the rest of the family went fishing. It's a very nice place. The snorkeling was awful the day we were there but it was still fun. Until the kids both got stung by jellyfish, that is. Lunch is a buffet but they don't tell you you... More

Everything they said it would be. Great snorkeling, pretty beach animals to look at and the fries fish and banana chips for lunch were awsome. When we arrived one of the workers heard me talking about how I had wasted a snorkel day at passion island so they arranged for us to go back to our cruise ship late so... More

We did this excursion on the Vision of the Seas port stop. Excursion details said nothing of swamps and stagnant water - I was eaten alive by Mosquitos. So bring your bug spray. Lots to see here. Numerous animals that appear to be well cared for. Nice little beach. Nice lunch. Just a stone's throw from where we docked.

We took the Maya Key private beach excursion as part of our cruise. The island is beautiful, and the tour guide knowledgeable about the animals in the rescue. Perfect place to relax in the water, and on the white sand beach.

We visited here in April and had a totally different experience than this time. I will say the snorkeling is the very best I have ever experienced and was the highlight of the trip. We staked out some loungers and tried to get a little sun before lunch was to be served. It really is a beautiful place but there... More

Our day didn't start out so well as our ship (Carnival Glory) was late pulling into port...it was a little cloudy too. They had so many scheduled for this excursion that we couldn't all fit on the ferry over to the island so another wait....but once we got there it was FANTASTIC!!! The sun started to shine and the snorkeling... More

Nice quiet secluded little island, with beautiful clear water. Was greeted by friendly staff and was told a little bit about the Island. My son and his girlfriend loved snorkeling off the wooden pier, they even seen a baby octopus! My husband, daughter and I enjoyed sitting on the uncrowded beach in the shade under the beautiful palm trees. We... More
