Feel like going out on your own? Not a problem! The Mesoamerican Reef that surrounds the island of Roatan is just a short swim away from the shore. There are beautiful snorkel spots in both West End and West Bay that will amaze even a seasoned snorkeler. When choosing to snorkel unguided, renting a dive buoy is highly recommended for safety purposes although it is not required. Staying clear of boat channels and keeping a watchful eye on what is happening around you on the surface are just a few ways you can stay safe and still be delighted by the beautiful coral reef and diverse marine life on Roatan.
