After reading reviews and checking websites we hired a local guide to drive us around the island. This gave us the flexablity to add SNUBA to our already exciting agends. After ziplining we went to West Bay to the beach. Our dirver took us to a public access point right near Tabyana Beach it was free and very easy to get to AuquRoatan's shop. The snorkeling is amazing. My family did SNUBA with AquaRoatan.com. Our guide Ryan was terrific and the prices are very reasonable. They also had local guards watch our things while we were in the water, jsut in case. The shop next door would not rent me a BC to shore dive, but the guys at AquaRoatan helped me find a guide so I could scuba off the beach near my family.
We made 4 stops on our cruise and did a couple of things at each port., but ziplining and SNUBA on Roatan are #s 1 and 2 on our best parts list. I highly recomend AquaRoatan.com.
I would recommend you use a local guide for your day in Roatan instead of a ship tour. You will get to see the real island.
