Most Western Caribbean cruises stop for a day in Roatan, either at Mahogany Bay or Port of Roatan, depending upon the cruise line. When you choose your Roatan shore excursion, you want to make sure you’ll have a fun-filled day taking advantage of Roatan’s beautiful island environment. So come join us at Jolly Roger Roatan Sailing and Snorkeling with Lunch!
Where is Roatan?
Roatan is the southernmost port for Western Caribbean cruises. Many stop in Mexico and Belize, and then come to Roatan before heading back toward the U.S.
Roatan is located off the coast of Honduras and is surrounded by the second largest barrier reef system in the world. The Mesoamerican Barrier Reef has made Roatan a premier scuba diving and snorkeling destination. You should take advantage of our beautiful underwater views for your Western Caribbean cruise shore excursion in Roatan.
Roatan is a very green tropical island – not arid like some of the islands in the Eastern Caribbean. We have rolling hills that run the length of our island and offer incredible views off both the north and south shores.
Roatan is also not overly developed. As your cruise ship approaches our island, it may look like hardly anyone lives here! We don’t have massive condominium buildings or hotels along the shore.
You might notice our small seaside villages with homes built on stilts over the water. Or maybe you’ll see our commercial center with fishing boats and freight or cargo ships. Maybe you’ll just marvel at how lush our tropical island looks from the sea. Roatan is a true Caribbean gem.
