Roatan Island is renowned the world over for its lush and vivid marine life. And you'll see it all by glass-bottom boat on this Roatan excursion.

After meeting your driver at the pier area, you will travel approximately 30 minutes to reach your boat on Half Moon Bay on Roatan's West End. As it is situated on the second-largest reef system in the world, Roatan's claim to fame is under the sea off its coast. During your Roatan shore excursion, you will experience the magic and majesty of the reef from the comfort and security of your glass-bottom boat.

The boat is 44 feet long, 12 feet wide, is air conditioned and accommodates 28 passengers. The viewing area can be reached by a narrow staircase leading from the upper deck down into the hull of the boat. Here, metal benches fold down so you can sit and watch the underwater world go by. The windows face out, offering a much larger viewing field than the traditional glass bottoms that only look down.

While keeping comfortable and dry, you will be able to be face-to-face with sea fauna, untouched reef systems, eels, sharks, and a whole host of fish species. It is an unforgettable experience observing, photographing, and simply being one with the underwater ecosystem like never before. Your glass bottom cruise lasts approximately 40 minutes. After the tour, you will have a few minutes to take pictures or purchase a refreshment before you are transferred back to the cruise pier.

5 StarsGreat experience March 01, 2018

Reviewer: Luke from Wisconsin
Our glass bottom boat tour on Roatan was awesome. William our guide was great, had a lot of knowledge and connections on the island. We felt very safe and relaxed with his guidance. The boat tour was great what a beautiful experience to see all the fish close up. Unfortunately the reef itself is suffering from “bleaching” because of climate change, so get there while you can. The natural wonder has limited time before its gone.

Our guide was William and he was a Gem! The Glass Bottom Boat was first and it was so neat to see the coral and fish so close up. Then a tour of the island and a stop at the Chocolate Factory. Everything was amazing!

Reviewer: Terry Heiner
We were greeted by the sweetest driver, Kenya, who gave us a great tour of the island. Never rushing and willing to stop and explain any area was just wonderful. The glass bottom boat gave us a great view of the reef with much explanation of the fish and coral. Recommend this to anyone looking for a laid back excursion.

Reviewer: Dean & April Cameron
The tour guides were very friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. They asked if we would like to do a little shopping and when we said yes, they took us to a large souvenir shop in a mall in the town. They then took us to a shop where chocolate was made from scratch using cocoa beans. A man at the shop explained the process that they used and let us taste a piece of the cocoa bean and some samples of the different kinds of chocolate they made from it. Then we drove to the dock where we went on the glass bottom boat. It was a very enjoyable spectacular view of the bottom of the sea and the many colourful fish species. We would highly recommend this excursion.
