Mangrove Tunnel, Iguana Park and Snorkel
Leave the busy port behind as you meet up with your licensed, bilingual driver guide and board an air-conditioned vehicle for a ride out to Roatan's east end. Your first stop will be in Oakridge where you will enter a boat for a ride through the Mangrove Tunnel. Imagine how the pirates used these tunnels for camouflaged transportation as you observe the mangroves' ecosystem and see animals including iguanas and heron. Today the tunnels are used by locals as a quick way to get from town to town.
Continue on to Arch's Iguana and Marine Reserve where you get to feed, play with, and take photos of dozens of native free-roaming green iguanas. While here your guide will share everything you ever wanted to know about iguanas, from what they eat to where they sleep. In the park's aviary, you will be greeted by the sounds and sights of colorful parrots and macaws singing in the tree limbs overhead.
Make your way down to the water's edge where you will have the chance to feed the tarpon fish. Then it's on to the dock to get fitted with snorkeling gear and hop on the boat for a quick ride out to the reefs where an amazing underwater world full of colorful corals, dancing seagrasses, and tropical fish await you.
