Discover Roatan from the treetops in a Me Tarzan You Jane style. You will experience a breath taking rush as you defy the laws of gravity by sliding down cable to cable from the ridge of the mountain straight down into beautiful Gumbalimba Park. This journey starts at Creation Rock at the top of Gumbalimba Park where our guides provide and gear you with the finest canopy equipment (harness, safety harness, helmet, pulley and gloves).
At the top, our guides will brief everyone and transform you into Jane or Tarzan.
The rush begins as you are attached to the cables not knowing what it will feel like to be amongst the birds but knowing that you are safe and secure.
The canopy tour consists of 13 stretches of cable and 17 stations, each cable measuring from 120 feet in length to 500 feet in length. Each station is located in the trees between 18 and 60 feet from the ground.
One of only two certified Canopy Tours in Honduras with a three cable system!
Snuba is an easy and safe way to enjoy the coral reefs in Roatan. No prior snorkeling experience is necessary. You simply breathe through a scuba regulator that is connected to an air tank. This gives you the benefit of being able to stay under water as long as you want, having the flexibility to stay at any depth you feel comfortable (maximum depth is 20 feet) and the ability to come to the surface whenever you want.
Your guide will give you instructions in shallow water where you can either stand or sit. Afterwards, you'll be able to snuba in the designated trail. It is about 50 yards of sea grass where one can often see starfish, rays, octopus and juvenile fish. Past the sea grass, you'll find the coral reef with a spectrum of tropical fish.
