What people are saying about Roatán

Our guide was excellent. Even with a last minute change of plans because the sloths were unavailable at the sanctuary because they were sleeping, our guide jumped into action and found us a new venue where we were able to continue our excursion with only a few minutes delay due to travel. The new place was even better as there was a baby there too. Afterwards we filled up the day with whatever we wanted to do. We went to a quaint little village with a beach and had lunch on a lovely pier on the ocean. Perfect!

We had an awesome time on this excursion. Dewey was a great local guide and provided great information about the island and its history. The highlight was definitely the snorkeling and mangrove tour, absolutely amazing!!!!! Some of the best snorkeling I have ever experienced. The stop at the little zoo was just okay (you get to hug a sloth but other than that meh). I should also note that my 9 month old daughter came along on the excursion and it was no problem at all.

Steve (the owner) Joshua (his son) and close family friend, Jonathan, were absolutely FABULOUS! The tour was in depth and active and enthralling. I learned all about the history of the island and the locals. We visited towns on the island I never knew existed and snorkeled the reef after an exquisite boat ride. THIS TOUR IS THE ONE I SUGGEST. It is perfect for every type of individual. Age, health and background. Every single persons needs were met 100%!

Our experience with this tour company was a 10/10. Vicky and Roberto made our first experience to Roatan very memorable. It was a really rainy day so we were unable to visit the beach after our wildlife encounter. Instead of taking us right back to the ship, they took us to a chocolate factory and a restaurant for lunch where we had some of the best ceviche! I would highly recommend this tour company.

We donated materials for the children to the school, then we walked around the island a few times, went to the viewpoint, and went to West End to snorkel, they helped me a lot to do it among the corals. Water was clear. We saw a dolphin show, I had some really big shrimp.
