Pristine Bay Snorkeling

Recommended Posts

Hi all.  Considering doing the Pristine Bay excursion from NCL because the rest of the family will be doing it, but I LOVE to snorkel, and I don't want to miss out on the chance in Roatan.  I saw a video that implied that there was good shore snorkeling in Pristine Bay.  Can anyone confirm or deny that?  I'd appreciate your thoughts!

One need to keep in mind such things are subjective and are based on past experince of an individual. 


I would have thought the reef to far out to swim to at Pristne Bay... if you hire a boat it may well be worth while. 


I have snorkeled a fair amount of the island and I believe the best snorklng to be within the Roatan Marine Park which runs Sandy Bay West Bay, this area is protected. The remainder of the island seems to have been over fished by the locals.

I thought the resort was in receivership.  But maybe that's just the condos section.  Fairly remote.  the golf course is the main attraction for cruisers.
