“Awesome Time”
Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

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 was made outside in a large outdoor oven. And a couple bottles of the local beer. Then we just relaxed on the lawn chairs. Tulio and his staff were awesome. All in all a nice relaxing excursion.

“Wow!”

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.

“Excellent service and experience”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

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 identify him among the group of snorkelers. He would stop periodically to show us special fish, eels, lobsters, sea cucumbers, etc… and even allowed us to handle a few if we so desired. We went on a nice tour around the floating deck and enjoyed seeing the close-up reefs and sunken items including a boat and a friendly shark statue. This snorkeling excursion far surpassed our previous snorkeling experience in Cozumel, Mexico.

“Enjoyable”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

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 had fun.
