Tour Details

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 StarsWonderful experience for our familySeptember 03, 2018

Reviewer: KJ
Kenya and her team were awesome! The Glass bottom boat ride was so cool!! Even when one of our party got a little seasick, they had accommodations that allowed her to enjoy the ride from up top. Kenya gave us a tour of the island before and after the ride including history, a beach stop, chocolate shopping and a restaurant with great food! When we requested local island food/fruit she went to local vendors and even literally stopped at mango and other fruit trees. She volunteered and took several pictures of our family in various places and had even more places she was willing to take us! She was professional, knowledgeable, warm, kind and very welcoming. She helped make our vacation exceptional and the Glass Bottom Boat ride (and Tour :-) our best excursion by far!

5 StarsFun experience, great tour guideMay 07, 2018

Reviewer: Jay Melo
The tour guide, William is a great guy. He gave us a lot of great info during the ride to the boat. The boat is fun to be in, and it's air conditioned inside. The views are excellent, we saw lots of sea life and vegetation. Afterwards on the way back to the port, we stopped at a chocolate factory and a small shopping area, it was a nice bonus and William was gracious enough to add this to our experience.

4 StarsTime zone in Different plan accordinglyApril 30, 2018

Reviewer: Rashmi Boggs
I did not realize the time zone would be different and our boat time was based on island time and not boat time. This caused us to arrive way too early for our boat ride. Luckily we found a tour guide, Charmin, who took us on a trip to see the island and to the monkey and sloth hangout. It worked out perfectly, the hangout was AMAZING, definitely recommend it. Once we got back, we were picked up for our glass bottom boat tour by Will, who was very knowledge and made sure we got back in time for boarding. The glass bottom boat was so cool to see, it was sitting on the bottom of a boat with windows all around.

5 StarsTerrific DayApril 23, 2018

Kenya treated me like a queen. She showed me so much and filled me in on the background and history of Roatan throughout the day. Due to the weather I ended up being the only person and I felt very special. The glass bottom boat was great I highly recommend the tour
