Underwater Museum & Reef Snorkel

Head out to the second largest barrier reef in the world to learn about Roatan’s history underwater. Yes, you'll actually learn about it while snorkeling the pristine, calm waters just inside the reef as you visit the Underwater Museum. The coral garden will showcase the abundant marine life on the island. Roatan’s history goes back to the Maya civilization, and travels through time witnessing the arrival of the Conquistadores, the Garifuna and the fishing industry. During your tour today, you'll visit the Underwater Museum which showcases artifacts from each of those periods - including a sunken Spanish galleon - all surrounded by a beautiful coral garden on the barrier reef. After departing the pier on the way to the museum, your friendly guide will provide you with very useful and important information about the island.


Upon arrival at the museum, you'll receive a safety briefing and your snorkel equipment and will head out to the starting point just a few yards off the dock on a boat for the 60-minute snorkel tour. Your snorkeling guides will be with you all the time to make sure you follow the path. Bring your waterproof camera as this is truly a unique snorkeling experience. After the snorkel tour, you'll have some free time to take photos and relax before returning to the cruise ship pier where your tour will come to an end.


Note: Mask, snorkel, fins and vest are included. Knowing how to swim is preferred but not required to take the tour. Snorkeling is done in 5 to 20 feet of calm water on the inside of the reef. Two snorkeling guides for every 15 guests accompany the tour on the water. Please bring a swimsuit, towel, sunscreen and bug spray. Drinks and snacks are available for purchase at the museum.
