Best Things to Do in Roatan
The coral reef around Roatan is some of the most pristine reef in the world. It attracts scuba divers and snorkelers throughout the year. If you’re a scuba diver, Roatan has to be on your dive vacation list!
Whether or not you scuba dive, Roatan’s snorkeling is some of the best in the world. We enjoy seeing incredibly diverse marine life, including the most amazing sight: whale sharks!
On a more typical day, we enjoy regular visits from sea turtles, plus occasional sightings of nurse sharks, stingrays, eagle rays, and moray eels. We often see big schools of fish along the reef, and there is always a wide variety of fish and other little critters for us to spot.
Snorkeling in Roatan is a must-do while visiting our beautiful Caribbean island. In fact, it’s the best thing to do in Roatan!
Snorkeling with Jolly Roger Roatan
The reason we love taking guests out to our favorite snorkel sites is because we want to share this underwater beauty. We get to enjoy these views every single day, but that doesn’t mean we ever get tired of them!
A snorkeling excursion with Jolly Roger starts with a cruise on one of our many catamarans. We try to ensure our guests’ comfort, so we always have plenty of fresh water on board, plus some shaded areas to stay out of the sun. But please always keep in mind the strength of this tropical sun and protect yourself.
We moor up near the best snorkeling site for that day and get everyone geared up to head out. Our snorkel excursions are always guided. Whether you’re a snorkeling guru or a complete novice, you can rest assured that we will point out some great marine life and interesting coral for you to enjoy.
If you’re a very experienced snorkeler, feel free to explore a bit more on your own, but always listen to our crew for safety instructions, especially in regards to boat traffic and shallow reef.
