Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Board your transportation and drive across a bridge to Fantasy Island Beach Resort. This resort is one of the first established in Roatan. The resort structure may reflect its age, but it's still beautiful and it's located on a picturesque private, 21-acre island. It is a first-class scuba and snorkeling destination and is surrounded by one of the world's largest barrier reefs. Beautiful mangrove, palm and pine trees surround the pristine sugar sand beach. The turquoise waters are warm and inviting.

A refreshing fruit punch is offered upon arrival and your guide will lead an introductory safety briefing. You will be divided into groups according to your snorkeling and swimming abilities. Snorkeling equipment including vest and professional instruction are included. For novice snorkelers, your guide will provide extra attention and after a short snorkeling briefing starting from the beach, he or she will determine if your skill level will allow participation at the shipwreck site due to the water's current and the amount of swimming required. Alternatively, excellent snorkeling is offered in a shallower reef area.

Your adventure begins at the "snorkeling departing time" written in your wristband, and it starts from the Padi 5-Stars diving center. Depart on a short transfer by boat to a mysterious shipwreck and reef site. Here you will snorkel off the boat. Rainbow colored tropical fish, an abundance of sponges and spectacular coral abound. The area teems with marine life and your knowledgeable guide will point out the best places for viewing. The crystalline water offers wonderful visibility and those with underwater cameras will bring home breathtaking pictures. Depending on the sea conditions and currents the visibility of the shipwreck may be unpredictable.

When you return to the beach, rinse off in the freshwater showers and take some time to explore the property at leisure. The beach is wonderful, and before or after the snorkeling you will have approximately 1 hour and a half to enjoy it. Meanwhile you can also decide to join a guided walk along the property to look for the monkeys, iguanas and other species that live on the island.
