ShoreTrips says...

This is the perfect way to do a little exploring while not sacrificing the inherent purpose of vacationing: relaxation!

Despite what you may believe, there is a perfect way to see the liveliness of ocean life that doesn't involve the stresses of snorkeling. This day is set up just for that as you explore the ocean's depths on a glass-bottom boat while still leaving plenty of time to relax on Roatan's beautiful beaches. We believe this is the best of both worlds!

After getting picked up at the cruise ship pier, you will be taken to a welcoming beach covered in the shade of palm trees. Grab your reserved lawn chair and enjoy that perfect Roatan breeze as you wait your turn to board the glass bottom boat.

The unique design of the vessel provides a rare glass-bottom experience that allows you to look straight forward and not only at the floor below you. After making your way into the air-conditioned observation room, you will depart on a 30-minute cruise just off the shore. With the deckhands feeding the fish from above and knowing all the most active locations, you are bound to have a memorable experience taking in the sights of this pristine reef system.

After disembarking the boat, you will take a short walk back to the beach to enjoy a complimentary drink and reflect on the action of the ocean bottom. Your guide will come and get you when it is time to return to the cruise ship pier!

Have your camera ready as you never know what may pass by your viewing window.
