Witness Underwater Beauty While Snorkeling in Roatán

Individuals, families, and groups of all ages can experience the low-impact recreational sport at the guidance of Island Dive Center staff. Your instructor will teach you proper techniques and take you to the best sights to spot fish, turtles, and more. Masks, fins, snorkels, and life vests are included as you get to know the world below the water’s surface.

We encourage you to make the experience exactly how you like it. If part of your group would rather dive while the rest snorkel, your instructor can arrange a customized excursion that keeps everyone together on the same boat and dive site.
