Snorkel and Kayak Combo
Roatan Kayaking and Snorkeling Combo Tour
Explore Roatan's reef from above and below during this small group kayaking and snorkel Roatan excursion.
After meeting your driver at the pier area, you will travel approximately 30 minutes on a scenic route with incredible views over the reefs of Roatan to reach your starting point. Unlike the large snorkel tours, this one departs from a North Shore beach, where you will not find the West End crowds.
You will meet your experienced guide who will provide you with floatation vests and snorkel gear. Next, they will explain basic paddling techniques for your kayak, which is a single seat, sit-on-top style.
Once you are confident of the kayak's operation, you will set off in your small Roatan excursion group, never more than 5 guests at a time, in calm water behind the barrier reef and pass deserted beaches and mangroves.
You will kayak for almost one hour along the scenic coast before returning back to the dive shop. From here you will be taken by boat to the snorkeling location where you can explore the waters beneath the surface. For guests not wishing to snorkel, you have the choice of remaining back at Turquoise Bay Resort where you can beach walk, play in the water, or taste one of the tasty tropical drinks, sodas or beer available for purchase at the beach bar.
After time is all up, you will be transferred back to the cruise pier.
Please Note: This tour can only accommodate up to five people at one time. A Roatan Marine Park fee of $5 US (additional cost) per person will be collected upon arrival.
This tour was excellent! The snorkeling was fantastic and the reef seemed to be in very good condition. We had a group of only four people, with an excellent guide. We opted to spend all of our time snorkeling or at the beach, rather than use the kayaks. There was also a really nice lunch provided and complimentary drinks. We had time at the end to relax on the beach. The beach was beautiful, with thatched-roof cabanas and plenty of lounge chairs. There was also a neat wooden swing set in the water right near the shore, which was great for relaxing with a beer after snorkeling. I would highly recommend this tour!

This snorkel adventure was to a magnificent reef and was the highlight of our trip. The reef was amazing as well as our tour guide. We spoke to the owner at length and he and his staff are amazing. (Disclaimer: my only disclaimer is that the local authorities make these tour groups stay outside the port property so it is a trick to find them. In this case, it was well worth it).

Fun, easy way to snorkel on the reef. Good support for hesitant snorkelers. A long drive to reach a beautiful sport. The kayaking was great among the mangroves.

Beautiful reef to snorkel They were a bit overbooked and we had to leave before we could kayak.
We very much enjoyed this excursion. Everything from picking us up at the dock to the activities was smooth and well run. Beautiful beach and resort. The kayaking and snorkelingvwere great fun, the reef coral and fish were in excellent condition. A well run excursion. Our driver Ronnie gave us an interesting commentary, answered all our questions and drove carefully.
