My wife and I spent a full day with Channin touring the island and could not have been happier. We stayed on the east end and Channin had to walk to our place to pick us up because of the wind. We took a boat taxi, toured the harbors and mangroves and then headed out by van to see the... More

Rather than doing water activities, we chose to have a sightseeing cultural tour. Our guide, Kimberly, Channin's lovely wife, did a great job. There isn't that much to see above the water on Roatan, but Kimberly showed us some lovely places and told us all about Roatan's history and current status. We had a most enjoyable tour and highly recommend... More

We visited Roatan on the Carnival Pride on Christmas Day. We used Channin Bodden to transport us from the pier to West Bay Beach. Our transportation was pre-arranged and Channin and his wife, Kimberly, were waiting for us when we exited the ship. We thought that he would simply transport us to the beach then leave to accommodate other guests.... More

Channin provided an excellent tour of Roatan Island to our family during a cruise on the Ruby Princess in November of 2014. Channin is extremely knowledgeble concerning the history of Roatan Island and provided a very enjoyable and informative tour of the Island. Carnival (who owns the cruise port) does not make using Channin easy as you must walk outside... More

Kim met us just as instructed. We took a tour of the botanical garden and Kim explained what each plant was. We met Channin and learned about Roatans's culture. We had a drive on the beach which was a first for us. Prompt response to all my emails.

I highly recommend Channin Bodden Tours for your day (or days) in Roatan. He and his family have a deep history on this island, which makes his tours that much better! My friend and I were told about Channin's company by a friend at home in the states. We are so glad that she mentioned him because our tour exceeded... More

Channin picked us up at our hotel and took us as much around the island as a van would be allowed (ie. no 4-wheel driving which would have probably been needed if we were to explore the non-paved roads). It seems he is related directly or indirectly to most of the island residents which was really fun! Every time we... More

When researching Roatan everything I found suggested Channin Bodden Tours from personal blogs to travel sites. Couldn't have found any better. When I was booking I got quick responses to all emails and the best detailed answers. Easy directions to meet when I got off the ship. We actually toured with Kemberlee, Channin's wife. She is a sweetheart and AWESOME!!!... More

My family and I had a remarkable day with Channin as he showed us around his home. His tour was very informative and full of excitement. We made several stops offering breathtaking views and were able to capture many photographic memories. Channin was able to personally take us to every activity we had on our "must see/do list for a... More
