Haymon was our driver for the day and accommodated us very well with the short time we had to do everything ! From stopping to where we wanted to stop, showing us good places to eat and take pictures, to talking about the local life on the Island, Haymon was probably the reason the sun got out on that rainy day. Thank you so much for the amazing memories. We hope next time we come back, we will have you as our driver ! Thank you from Quebec !!

Setting up the day trip was easy and they kept in contact with us on the cruise ship via WhatsApp. The night before we realized ship time and local time were different, but it was no problem for them to meet us an hour earlier. Had a fun day. Guide was friendly and informative. Had great time at Sloth and Monkey place holding the animals. Saw some great fish and coral when snorkeling. Highly recommended

We really appreciated our tour guide, Murphy, local native and very knowledgeable about Roatan!! Great fun with the animals and they are treated very well! Snorkeling was fun except for the tiny jellyfish mishap, nonetheless we had a great day!!! Ate lunch in a tree house restaurant, Paradise Restaurant!! Awesome day!!

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.

This was an excellent adventure! Sherna was fun and knowledgeable on our tour and Gustavo took us to some excellent snorkeling locations as well as a tour of the island by sea! We highly recommend this company.
