  1. I completly agree. I have been visiting the island for over 20 years for up to three months at a time. I have not once sat on the beach drinking adult beverages. I walk a fair amount and some if that ends up being on a beach. I will admit I enjoy reading my book on a second level covered deck with an amazing view. :0) With that said I spend HEAPS of time in the water, snorkeling or just swiming. I took an inflatable kayak with me one year, paddled from West Bay to West End and swam back every day for 8 weeks. I was out there so much the water taxi guys started saying HI every time they pas
  2. I wish add just one other thing... it would truly be a crime not to hop in the water to play with the fish...many believe the snorkling from Roatan to be the best in the Caribbean. Best of Luck in your search, I hope you find what you seek.
  3. I will be interested to see what members have to say. Roatan has several, 5-6 at last count, scattered about the island. If a zipline is your priority location may not matter, however if you are planning other stops during your visit, location may well be a thing. It also maybe worth while to to the math on the location of your port, there are two on the island. Roatan is an island off the coast of a third world county, at this point it is difficlut to know which businesses will have survived Covid by the time you arrive.
  4. Thank You, after talking with friends on the island we came the conclusion the online schedules are incorrect.
  5. I didn't think they were as yet.. I had a peek at one of the schedules it is says there were at least two ships in Roatan Jan 2nd. Does anyone know if the online schedules are correct?
  6. Holy Hannah, I didn't notice the date.. so sorry. From what I remember of Parrot Tree, they have a man made lagoon with zero snorkling. One may be able to hire a boat to get to open water snorkling. Or it is possible things have changed since I was there. If in that area, I undertsand Daniel's started taking out snorkel boat, I would do that over Parrot Tree. For that matter they may well be able to sort the entire itinerary of the OP. With all that said, I truly believe the best snorkling is within the Roatan Marine Park which runs one end of Sandy Bay
  7. Is there snorking at Parrot Tree that I don't know about?
  8. Finally someone says what I have suspected about this place all along. Sandy Bay has a good bit of shallows between the beach and the reef. If there is a pier, one may be able to get some fair distance from the beach and closer to deeper water. When I stayed in Sandy Bay I took a kayak from the beach out to deeper water.
  9. Tabyana is part of West Bay Beach, one cannot acess the section of West Bay indepenatly but there are plenty of beach clubs to choose from. In you are only interestwd in the beach I reccommned you choose a day pass option with transport included.. this way you can come and go as you please. With all that said ~ If I had friends visiting Roatan I would suggest they hire a private driver to drop them in West End, to wander about and maybe snorkle a bit in Half Moon Bay, then take the water taxi to West Bay for bathing in the sun, lunch and a bit more snorkeling. Their driver could c
  10. Do tell me more about the local wild life you saw.. cause very few animals are natural to the island. Lizards, snakes, those rats things I can never remember the name of... a few birds, bats. Lands End had deer at onme point but I have no idea where they came from.
  11. Gumbalimba has a beach right on the water and the taxi guys are hungry enough they will stop anyplace... then again along with time being a problem...one would haven to get in the water taxi from the sand not a pier. Anywho, the OP has Bodden all lined out... good plan there.
  12. I must be missing something.... you are saying West End and West Bay are not connected via road? You really gotta explan this to me cause back in the day I walked the road between West End and West Bay. Maybe the OP could choose the park like Gumbalimba, Manawakie the website says it is open to the public as well as cruise ships visitors. Depending on time you might could get to the Chocolate Factory in West End as well.... you would see a fair amount of the island while doing so. :0) http://www.manawakieecopark.com/ Time is a worry with cruise visitors... one could
  13. Roatan was put on the map due to the world class diving... I believe everyone should get in the water, snorkeling will always be available. Side note ~ While I am an animal person, I am NOT a zoo person. :0)
  14. I am not good with distance but as a guess it would take me maybe four mins to swim from Infinity to the 75ft drop. I know nothing about the "starfish area".. I do know that starfish move.. one year there were heaps and heaps in the sandy bottom space shore side of the 20ft mark on the map. Visibilty has several factors.. one being sunlight another being weather. What time of year is your cruise?
