The best excursion we have ever done.
Marilyn_G, Mar 2023
We had a great day! Actually it was the best day of our entire vacation because of this excursion. We were a group of 4 including a 12 yo and 16yo. They both loved it. I don't know what the best part was. Our guide was great and pointed out different things along the route. We were not rushed at any point, but everything moved along smoothly. They made sure everyone who wanted to interact with the animals was able to. They ensured everyone had snorkel gear that fit properly and kept everyone safe during the snorkeling. They ensured we were back at the port in plenty of time which allowed for some shopping. All of the staff was very friendly and willing to help. I would happily take this excursion again and highly recommend it to anyone going to Roatan. I have taken excursions on other trips, but this was by far the best one.
A more memorable experience
Jaclyn_A, Mar 2023
The excursion was wonderful. It was very crowded at the location and getting off the ship, but seeing the sloths were amazing. My family and I had a blast and it was very memorable. Great excursion to do with kids. Also, we had a our own travel leader (Micheal) who was outstanding. We learned so much about the culture, food and the Honduras people. He was great and really catered to what we wanted to see and hear about. I would definitely recommend Micheal to anyone wanting a bit more of an experience.
Great experience

Snorkeling and holding animals
Amanda_M, Mar 2023
We loved holding the animals. We were there early and had plenty of time with the sloths, monkeys, guinea pigs, and parrots. The snorkeling was great. The water was clear, and our guide pointed out lobsters, conch, and anemones along the way. Robert our driver was super friendly: we had a great time learning about Roatan from him.
Good excursion

The kids loved holding the sloths and monkeys, and the beginner snorkeling was just the right amount.
Michelle_A, Mar 2023
Our family enjoyed the sloths! We had a blast doing the snorkeling! From the beginning to the pick up with Jim and Michael and friends for the snorkeling adventure they were all awesome! Well worth it!
Roatan sloth, monkey, and snorkeling
Allyson_J, Mar 2023
We loved this excursion. Our tour guides went above and beyond to help us enjoy our day. Great food recommendations, and got us back with plenty of time for a little shopping. If you go ask for Dustin and Nanda, they were the best!
Good experience
Steven_S, Mar 2023
Loved holding a sloth. That was awesome. Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah. That’s you get when you ask me to say more than I want to in your surveys
Great experience with land and marine life!
Jackie_M, Feb 2023
Our driver was very good and knowledgeable about the area as he was taking us to the animal area. There were many people at the animal area who were very nice and it was fun holding and interacting with the Guinea pigs, macaws, sloths and monkeys. From there, we went down the road to the dock to wait for the snorkel boat. There were drinks and snacks available to purchase while we waited. It was a beautiful private dock with a great view. Once we got on the boat, it was a short ride to the reef where we snorkeled with a guide in the water who showed us various marine life. It was a lovely trail along the reef. Then it was back in the boat to the dock, and there was a fresh water shower and changing area to use. After that, it was back in the car to the cruise port with our driver. It was a lovely excursion.
So much fun!
Kelli_F, Feb 2023
The pick up was a few blocks from port. Not terrible, our driver Tommy was amazing. The ‘critters’ were very clean and most of all loving and way fun! The snorkeling was a beautiful area. The guards that went as safety measures were wonderful. Tommy stopped and let our van load shop and have a snack. We totally loved this excursion and would definitely go again!! TY
Dont miss it!

Lisa_K, Feb 2023
The experience was very good. We were told the animals were rescue animals, and I hope they were. The snorkeling was wonderful. We left from a private beach and spent plenty of time in the water.
Daniel_R, Feb 2023
So amazing!!! Both parts of this excursion were incredibly memorable. Nothing compares to holding a sloth!
Amazing Tour!
Yarani_V, Feb 2023
We had the best time on this excursion! Monique was so sweet and caring that we quickly became friends. Holding a sloth was definitely the highlight of our vacation and we can't wait to do it again. The snorkeling was awesome too! We saw a lot of tropical fish, corals and even a lobster. Thank you for everything, Monique!
Excellent tour
Jon_M, Feb 2023
Excellent 3 hour tour with exceptional snorkeling near the Little/Big French Key. Monkeys, Sloth and various birds to hold, feed, etc...Monique was my guide and was very personable, kind and informative. Will be using this company again on an upcoming visit in May for the 3 stop Snorkeling tour.
The snorkeling. The crew...
Donna_G, Feb 2023
The snorkeling. The crew was great, the boat was perfect and we saw a lot. Also, the excursion meetup directions were sent before we left home for the cruise, so I had them in hand before I got off the ship. The frustration for our other two Viator excursions hurt our enjoyment.
Sloths and snorkeling
Charles_W, Jan 2023
The sloths were super cute. I was expecting a more park like atmosphere than petting zoo but glad I went. Wish the snorkel guides warned folks not to step on the coral.
Great Roatan excursion
Ilana_F, Jan 2023
Rhonda and Ronald were great and the snorkeling and animal encounters were awesome. Highly recommend for families
