Looking for snorkeling excursions in Roatan? Blue Island Divers in Roatan will take you by boat to the inner lagoon or outer reef just offshore of our dive shop. This snorkeling excursion does not require a long boat ride and is a great place for all levels of snorkelers.
As with all tours, we have all safety gear onboard and a marker in the water for you to be easily seen by other boats. We prefer you to be assisted by one of our guides. They will show you many things you will not see on your own.
Snorkeling in Roatan is a great experience because so much of the ocean is alive and much of it is very tiny. You will see amazing coral and sea life in less than 12 foot of crystal clear Caribbean water. The reef is vibrant and you are likely to find large marine life such as spotted eagle rays, barracuda, southern stingray, nurse shark, dolphins, spotted moray eels and more. You will always see vibrant corals, parrotfish, conch, wrasse, black durgeon, queen angelfish, sea stars, blennies, flamingo tongue, and much more.
