Glass Bottom Boat in Roatan

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, Bahamas 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 boat in Roatan 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.

Besides the Glass Bottom Boat my guide took me for a drive around Roatan. We stopped at a small Chocolate factory and a local store for some souvenir shopping. On the boat we saw the coral reef. We viewed many fish species, turtles and stingrays. The excursion was awesome.

The temperature in the boat was perfect. Once the chum was dumped, there were many things to see.

We were a bit concerned at first at the confusion between the local/ship time that was listed on our order as they said the tour would leave 30 minutes after the ship docked. We navigated the maze of shops and our tour guide was waiting. for 2-3 in We were the only ones on the tour. Garlan was an excellent guide, sharing about his country, family and his life. We first stopped off at the chocolate factory before we went to the glass bottom boat. We wanted to get chocolate but feared it would be too hot to leave it in the car--so he willingly stopped on the way back to the ship. From his shirt, he was a part of Hyde Tours,, secondly booked online through Shore Excursions. We were the first ones on the boat and it quickly filled up. We had a good seat and saw lots of colorful fish. Our boat narrator was very good. After the boat trip, Garlan took us back a different way so that we could see different places. We really appreciated that. We had a very nice day.

No quite as expected

Once u get past the madness that is the roundabout for tour vehicles the island is quite beautiful. Especially where they took us for the glass bottom boat. However where the boat goes on the reef is mostly a dead reef with very little colour or fish and was kinda disappointing.
