Things to Do: Snorkeling around CoCo View Wall (Roatan, Honduras)

QUESTION: What’s your favorite memory of a visit to Roatan, Honduras?

Need ideas for a fun ocean adventure while in Roatan? Try snorkeling near Fantasy Island and the French Cay... the CoCo View Wall. Honduras is part of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System - the second largest coral reef system in the world. It stretches from Belize, to Cancun through the Riviera Maya and up to Honduras. There’s always a possibility of seeing: sea turtles, tropical fish, eels, channels and caverns... something different every time. Here’s a preview of what we saw.

On two separate occasions during our Caribbean cruise, we chose Roatan Ocean Adventures which operated outside of the cruise line service. They can pick you up at either port... whether you’re on Royal Caribbean (Coxen Hole Port) or Carnival Cruise Line (Mahogany Bay Port).


  • Offer a day with variety visiting with iguanas, sloths, capuchin monkeys, then a snorkel trip.
  • Get you back to the ship with plenty of time to spare.
  • $55 / per person for a 3-4 hour tour


  • On our first tour with R.O.A. (9-27-2018), they didn't have the complimentary underwater photography as advertised. But on this snorkeling trip, they emailed a few (see pictures below). It can somewhat be inconsistent. So, bring your camera of choice... to be safe!
  • Either give tips specifically to those they’re intended for or give it to the tour operator lead and tell him to specifically split the tip between the team (driver to snorkel guides). We've heard from staff that sometimes they don't get the tips.

Overall Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

PELAGIC Ultratek Hoodie Fishing Shirt

I've had my (affiliate link) PELAGIC Ultratek Hoodie Fishing Shirt for years since my days in Hawaii. I never get sunburned doing outdoorsy things with this shirt. Love its UPF 50+ and quick dry properties.

CAPAS Short and Adjustable Open Heel Snorkel Fins

We usually travel with our own snorkel gear. (Updated: Feb-2021) Since this snorkeling excursion, we downsized our fins to the (affiliate link) CAPAS Short Snorkel Fins which are small and portable which is great for travel. Although it doesn’t provide as much propulsion as longer fins, they’re great while exploring on the surface of the water… shallow snorkel excursions. Since it has the adjustable open heels, there is still room if your adventure requires neoprene booties… plus, easier to walk with!
