Booked through RCC cruise. We had a mixed group, a couple who wanted to snorkel and a couple who just wanted a day on the beach. This excursion provided both. It is 5 minutes by boat from the cruise dock. For $70 a head, it includes a lukewarm buffet lunch of soggy fried sea bass, baked chicken, rice/beans, and salad.... More

We booked this excursion thru Carnival and so far it has been the best excursion we've been on. We took our 13 year old and she had the most amazing time. We went snorkeling and saw some really cool fish. My favorite the lion fish. We captured some cool pics on a disposable waterproof camera. We collected a few sea... More

My husband and I had such a great time on this private island. It is possible to walk a ways down the beach and pull your lounge chairs to the waters edge and enjoy your own little space with out other patrons right next to you. The animal habitat was very interesting and a lot of fun to walk around... More

This little island near the Roatan Airport has a snorkel pier that drops you right at the reef. It is amazing to see the crystal clear water and the reef teeming with sea life. The rest of the island has wild monkeys in the trees and other native species in a zoo like setting. The plants life around the island... More

Staff was friendly and helpful and the food was great. I was most surprised by the quality of the snorkeling! Head off the end of the long dock with the gazebo at the end and wind throught the shallow corals for about 30 yards until you get to the drop off. It's amazing! About 60 ft deep and full of...

They do great work there with the animals and beach was great and love the food. Sea Bass was great and the Rice and Beans. Mayan ruins was a replica but look great and had a lot of history there to tell about.

beautiful little island beside a bigger beautiful island. We were looking for a day to just relax while on a cruise and found an excursion to Maya Key. We were so delighted when we got to the island to see that there are birds and native animals all around the island. They had a small zoo with rescued monkeys and... More

Our family of five enjoyed our excursion to Maya Key last week. The highlight for my girls was the free Monkey encounter. Although the ocean was rough the day we visited, Staff member, Omar , was amazing at helping first timers snorkel . The lunch was good but we left a bit hungry. Our lunch, which was included in our... More

Maya Key is a private island that houses an animal rescue and rehab center. They have a zoo area and the animals were either orphaned, injured, confiscated, or donated to the rescue. The team does a great job of providing appropriate diets, habitats, and enrichment for all of the animals. A licensed veterinarian makes regular trips to Maya Key to... More
