Cozumel: Exclusive Sail and Snorkel
Escape the cattle boat crowds, board a spacious 40-foot catamaran (two hulls) with no more than 40 guests, and set sail for the barrier reefs of Cozumel.
Unlike the big group tours with one set itinerary, this Cozumel Sail and Snorkel Tour takes its direction from the weather that day. Based on sea and water conditions, your captain will head for the location that will give you the best experience. You will have up to three hours of navigating, with two stops for snorkeling with your guide along the way. Snorkel gear is included. Flotation vests are available; just ask one of the crew members onboard, if needed.
The bar is open with complimentary beverages such as bottled water and soft drinks before snorkeling. After snorkeling, enjoy the music onboard, along with ice cold draft beer, refreshing rum punch and house-made margaritas. The crew will also have some light snacks available for you.
In addition, the boat has shaded and open-deck areas to spread a towel out or just sit back and enjoy the views. There is a restroom on the vessel. Taxi fare from the Punta Langosta cruise pier is approximately $8 each way (not included in the tour price).
Dress:Guests will want to wear a bathing suit under comfortable clothing which may get wet and rubber-soled shoes for walking on the boat. A towel, sunglasses, and sunscreen are recommended.
Restrictions:Guests should have a general knowledge of swimming, and be at ease in the water. Guests under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Minimum age to snorkel is 10 years old. Flotation vests are available. Guests must be able to climb in and out of the boat. Guests under the influence, or appearing under the influence of alcohol or other substances, will not be allowed to snorkel and/or may be excluded from the tour. All guests must fill out a health waiver.
Duration: 3 hours
Roatan: Special Island Tour
Departing from the pier on the South shore of the Island, you will first make your way towards the east end of the Island. Along the way you will hear of the Islandís colorful history, that includes Indians, slaves, invaders, pirates, buried gold, and a charming blend of cultures, people and languages.
The main languages are Spanish, English, and Garifuna, which holds on to its African roots. You will pass through or get glimpses of several of the small villages that dot the island including Barrio Los Fuertes and French Harbor, the second largest town on the island. You may also see the wreck of ships along the coast.
A stop will be made at one of the highest points on the eastern end of the island for stunning views over the hills covered with lush vegetation and the sea with its many shades of blue.
You will also visit the west end of the island (most large group tours do not visit both the east and west ends) where you will drive through several of the small communities such as Sandy Bay.
Continue on to the west end, the tourist side of the island, with scuba diving centers, hotels, resorts, restaurants, beach clubs and tourist shops. Here you will have some free time on your own to walk along the white sand beach, explore the tiny shops, or perhaps purchase some of the local cuisine or rum.
Returning to the pier area, you will have the opportunity to take photos of the south shore from a dramatic look out. You will pass through several more small communities before arriving in Coxen Hole, the capital of Roatan. From here you will be returned to the pier.
Duration: 3 Hours
Belize: Altun-Ha and City Tour
Altun-Ha (Maya for Stone Water) was first populated in 200 BC and thrived as a trading post to the Maya World from 200 to 900 AD. The site covers an area of about 5 square miles. The central square mile of the site has remains of around 500 structures, the largest of which, the Temple of the Masonry Altars, is 54 feet high. This was home to the largest carved Jade Head depicting the Sun God "Kinich Ahau". Weighing in at almost nine pounds, this has been Belize's most valuable find.
After your tour of Altun-Ha, you will travel back to Belize City where you will see historical sites such as the Redbrick St. John's Cathedral, where Kings from the Mosquito Coast were crowned, and the colonial mansion once occupied by British Governors. The tour concludes at the Belize Tourism Village for entertainment and shopping.
