Tour Description


This tour will take you to explore the less known Eastside, where you will stop at picture-perfect spots, visit the Garifuna fishing village of Punta Gorda and discover the rich culture of our island including music, dancing, and riveting stories about Indians, slaves, invaders, pirates, buried gold, and our charming blend of cultures.

Board a Dory water taxi in Oakridge and head out to explore Roatan's mangroves, navigating along narrow channels, learning their pirate-related history and the value that this ecosystem adds to our island. Look out for birds, fish, and other animals living within the mangroves!

Lunch is available for purchase at your own expense at the world-famous restaurant and bar Hole in the Wall or Trico's, it’s a treat to enjoy local food at their dock.

Buggy units and guides are available to you for the entire day, if there are unplanned activities you would like to do let your guide know.
