Description

After leaving the cruise ship dock, we'll head to the east end of the island and drive through Coxen Hole, the capital of Roatan. Here, you'll see city hall and the commercial center.

We'll then continue on to two shipwreck sites: Tolum and Alexander. Learn about all of the interesting history behind these wrecks, including how one of the ships caught on fire.

Next, you'll get to know the local culture of Roatan as we go through little towns, like Barrio Los Fuertes (Spanish-speaking town) and French Harbor (fishing village). We'll also visit Pineapple Villas (new development), French Cay, and Arch's Iguana Farm, the one and only natural iguana farm in the world!

Moving on to the west side of Roatan (most tours don't go to both the east AND the west), we'll drive through a few small communities like Sandy Bay, stopping upon request at the Museum of Local History located in Anthony's Key Resort. You may even choose to visit Carambola Botanical Gardens or a butterfly garden a few minutes away.

After leaving here, we'll continue into the West End, where most restaurants and souvenir shops are located. While at West Bay, we'll see the most beautiful beach on the island, Half Moon Bay Resort. Here, you can spend the rest of your day relaxing in the sun or visiting some of the nicest bars and restaurants the island has to offer.

As we head back to the cruise ship pier, we'll drive through small communities such as Flowers Bay, Gravels Bay, and Pensacola. If you wish to stop at the stone castle (fine jewelry shop specializing in carved conch shells) on the way back, just let your driver know.

Shore Excursions

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.

MOSTLY EXCEPTIONAL

We did a private whale watching tour which was incredible. The train ride in Sitka which we were not going to do at first was spectacular. Scenery, comfort - a wonderful way to see the area and spend our time. We signed up for a Mendenhall Glacier trip plus Salmon bake. This one was so very commercial and although the glacier and waterfall were above our expectations, a short time was given to walk there and view. This left out two of our party as they could not move as fast as needed to return in the time frame of one hour. Then the BAKE- the food was marginally ok. They were out of the most important SMORES ingredients. It is crazy but that was advertised (we were willing to break our diets ) and we looked forward to them and then disappointed. The people were nice. the area was pretty but that one I would strongly advise friend not to sign up for.

Great experience. The tours of the Louvre, and Notrre Dame were great. The guide even helped me try to get Eiffel tower admission tickets switched after I had booked them on the wrong date.
