Tour Description

On the scenic 30 minute ride from either the Coxen Hole or Mahogany Bay Cruise Ship pier, you'll learn a little bit about Roatan's history and traditions, and you'll quickly see why it has become a up and coming destination for travelers seeking fun in the sun.

Your destination is Tabyana Beach, located in Roatan's West End. It's Roatan's most popular beach, and the destination of many passengers coming to the island by cruise ship. Tabyana features a white sand beach, warm inviting waters with good snorkeling in the reefs and amenities available at the adjacent resort.

This tour provides you with a day pass at the Henry Morgan Resort at Tabyana Beach. You have access to private sun loungers, sand mats, fresh water showers with changing and restroom facilities, a local gift shop and a bar. In the background they play Caribbean music to add to the atmosphere.

Here, you can swim, snorkel (bring your own equipment), walk down the beach, lie in the sun or under the shade of palm trees, play volleyball, or rent banana boats or kayaks (see note below).

Some tours include a barbeque lunch, which consists of barbeque chicken, hamburgers and hot dogs served with island-style fixings and tropical fruit. Ice tea and lemonade are available throughout the day.

Return transportation to the Cruise Ship dock complex is available all day, departing every half hour. Check with your ship for the return schedules.

Note: Lockers, banana boats and kayaks are available for rent from the resort on a first-come, first-served basis. The use of the water slide is not included on this tour, but can be purchased once at the beach. Collapsible wheelchair accessible transportation can be provided for this tour for guests with limited mobility; however, it is subject to availability. Therefore, the request must be made at the shore excursion desk onboard prior to ship’s arrival in port.
