Our day at Maya Key (formerly Fins & Flippers) was the highlight our recent cruise. We booked it right through the cruise line and were transported directly from a dock just steps off the ship.
Maya Key itself is gorgeous.... everything you could want for a beach day. I believe we paid $64.99 which included lunch. Alcohol was not included, but buckets of beer were cheap. There was also a small additional fee to rent snorkel gear. We are not terribly experienced snorkelers... but have snorkeled in Belize, Mexico, etc. - and this was some of the best we'd experienced, especially considering it is right off of the shore. We did get bit by some little bugs (sand fleas??) and had some little red spots, but they didn't hurt or itch and were gone by the next morning. Not a big deal.
Maya Key is also an animal sanctuary of sorts, and they have quite a few rescued / abused / donated animals on site (as well as some replica Mayan ruins) and you can do a little tour. I hate to see animals in cages, especially the big cats, but due to the circumstances they came from (poaching, etc.), I understand the unfortunate necessity of places like Maya Key and commend them for what they do. There were also some wild monkeys just hanging around, which was fun to watch.
Lunch was decent, with salad, BBQ chicken, fish, rice, etc. and lots of water and iced tea. Limited options for a vegetarian.
All in all... it was a great day. It's a beautiful facility. The grounds are so lush and tropical. This was my second cruise visit to Roatan, and both times it was our favorite stop. I'm thinking it's time to look into an extended vacation in Roatan.
