I am a scuba diver, but had a blast checking out the cheeky underwater museum by snorkle. Great excursion for kids as well. The atmosphere on the beach with the "Gilligans Island style" bar is awesome for a photo shoot! Bring your sunscreen, your own water (beverages?!) and your underwater camera!

First, a disclaimer: I have not paid the fee and actually done the Underwater Museum tour. I have often stayed nearby and have snorkeled the "museum" independently several times. I've observed the tour groups but not actually interacted with the staff. I assume a lot of the benefit for visitors is having a good experience with the people who work... More

I loved this snorkeling trip when I was there a few years ago. I went back last month and was disappointed in every way. The number of snorkelers in our group had doubled. I was kicked in the face so hard the Snorkel was knocked out of my mouth. I was told to "stay with the group". I replied that... More

We booked this through Norwegian for a family of four, including our 6 year old. One of the guides, Dennis was wonderful with him and did a great job helping him snorkel and look for shells and star fish. The water is gorgeous! Would definitely recommend.

We had a great time. It was our first time snorkeling and the staff was very helpful and attentive. Tulio let you know upfront that the artifacts are not real they are replicas but they are still very cool. Once we got out to the reef the fish were amazing. After we were done snorkeling we had some pizza that... More

Amazing sea life and fun knowledge. Would do again in a heartbeat. If you only do one thing in Roatan, make sure this is it.

From the tour guide on the shuttle (Tina) and especially the snorkel guides, we found the service to be outstanding. They were not only friendly and knowledgeable but also provided us with good quality snorkeling equipment that was clean and the right size. The snorkeling guide also kept a white life preserver floating near him which made it easy to... More

I had a good time indeed. Beautiful water & nice people. There would only be 2 things I'd change. 1 being the life jackets. It would help if they had the strap underneath to prevent it slipping over people's head while swimming. 2nd being alcohol options. If there had been larger variety they would make more money. Overall though, I... More
