“Great Time in Roatan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

This was one of the best excursions we have ever done. The staff Q, Roger and Kelly were the best. They were well organized professional and the equipment was in good condition. They took the time to accommodate all levels of experience while stressing safety . They gave you a real feel for the local flavor of the island and the tie in with the restaurant on the beach made it that much more enjoyable. I would highly recommend this excursion to anyone who is visiting Roatan.

“Don't miss it. Lots to see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

We saw a lobster that must have been 3 feet long, huge! Tons of fish in the reef. It was so cool to see them so close to the shore. Kayaking was great too. The snorkeling was the best!

“Great snorkeling and beach at West Bay, Roatan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

Hi, I just got back from Tabayana Beach at West Bay. You can easily reach the coral reef right off the beach in 4 feet of water and then you can snorkel a little west of the boat dock for some really great snorkeling. While I was there, there were 2 groups, one from shore snorkeling out and one from a boat going in. The coral reef is very nice. I used a diving shorty and floated for a long time over the reef. What I like the best, is that you just snorkel from a sandy beach and bottom unto the reef. You can relax and swim in the sand afterwards as well as members of your party. We tried the massage afterwards, and we're extremely happy. You won't be disappointed. We parked down the street from Bananarama for 1 dollar per hour. The rental car was only $50 for the day. To use a facility, you might have to go to a nearby bar or restaurant. Mike

“Roatan Adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

I chose this particular destination as an excursion from our Western Caribbean cruise out of Tampa. I have snorkeled in Guam and Hawaii and thought this would be a good opportunity to snorkel in the Caribbean. The hosts, Kevin and Sandra, saw that we were picked up at the pier where our ship was docked and took us to West Bay for our aquatic adventure. Upon arrival we were introduced to our guides and walked to the beach where we chose a partner for our two-man kayak trip. We then proceeded paddling on our half-mile trip up the island where we went on a short hike where we were given some historic facts about the area. We kayaked back to our starting point, got our snorkeling gear and proceeded to swim in the beautiful clear bay. It was like swimming in an aquarium with all the tropical fish, coral and aquatic plantlife, which were pointed out by our snorkeling guides. After snorkeling we went back to the cafe and had some snacks and drinks. It was a worthwhile adventure and I would highly recommend it to anyone traveling to Roatan.

“Fun experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

We booked this excursion when we went on a cruise for our honeymoon. Our guide was "Q" and he was AWESOME! They took us to the Cannibal Cafe where we were able to leave our belongings in lockers and pick up our snorkeling gear. We went right across the street to the bay where they guided us around the reef; the fish and coral was really neat to see. After about an hour, we came back for a quick lunch; the quesadillas and salsa were delicious. We left soon after on a kayaking trip along the bay, got to walk the beach for a while, and then returned to the Cannibal Cafe where we picked up our belongings and were bussed back to our cruise ship.

It really was a great day and I would definitely recommend this excursion to other who are looking to have an enjoyable day in the beautiful water.
