This tour is for Cruise Ship guests only! If you're staying on-island, check out our Best of Roatan Tour (Product code: 39620P6)

Roatan has two Cruise Ship Terminals -- Please check below for meeting location for your arrival dock below:

1) Port of Roatan Cruise Terminal (NCL, RCI, MSC, etc.): As you exit your ship, Pass the Shopping Plaza stores. Take a right at the restrooms past the shops and wrap-around building to the Independent Tours booths. Look for the Bodden Tours kiosk (it will have a large VICTOR BODDEN sign and will be in position #2 in the Independent Tours area.) One of our representatives will greet you at the kiosk, locate your name on our list and introduce you to your guide for the day.

2) Mahogany Bay Cruise Center (Carnival, Princess, AIDA, Costa, Holland American, P&O, etc): As you exit your ship, customers on Local Independent Tours will be required by Carnival Corporation to exit their dock area through the gates and walk over the hill to the main road. Once outside the gates and over the hill, look for our representatives holding VICTOR BODDEN signs. One of our representatives will greet you, locate your name on our list and introduce you to your guide for the day. At the end of your tour day, we ARE able to drop you off to the entrance of the dock...so you will only have to do this long walk one-way, when you first arrive.
a. Once you are outside the cruise compound, look for the VICTOR BODDEN signs and shirts!!
b. The Port Manager of the Mahogany Bay Cruise Center has negotiated with the on-site Taxi Association to provide transportation, if required, to the Independent Tours meeting area over the hill. The negotiated flat-rate for this taxi service is $2 per person. Please see the Taxi Dispatcher (in the Green Mahogany Bay shirt) to arrange for your group to utilize this service -- tell them that you need the $2 per person transport to Victor Bodden Tours on the other side of the hill. Or, if you'd rather, you can still walk over the hill (approximately 350 yards) to the designated area.

Ports

  • Mahogany Bay Cruise Center (Carnival, Princess, Costa, Discovery, HAL, P&O, etc)
  • Port of Roatan in Coxen Hole (RCI, NCL, MSC, TUI, Regent, Oceania, etc)

Great tour

The tour was great. The zoo was unbelievable with the monkeys and sloths and all the animals. After the tour, we went to the beach for 3 hours. The beach was great and the food and drinks were too. Ben, the tour driver, was great. Thanks Ben.

wonderful and amazing excursion

We met our tour guide on the outside after we pass the shops. The walk is far to get to the outside tours but it was worth it. Jerry (I hope I spelled his name right) took us around the island and explained some of the history of Roatan. That was a good hour to go around the island. Then, we went to a little zoo that had monkey's which we were able to go inside their cage and take pictures with them, we saw macaws and took pictures with them then we saw our favorite sloths! They were too cute and we took pictures with them!! The zoo was small but worth our time to visit the animals and take pictures with them! We then went to the West Bay Beach Resort which was great and amazing! . Bring extra money if you want to do activities at the beach. My husband, daughter and son did snorkeling near the second largest reef in the world.. This a must to do while you are in Roatan. My husband, daughter and son went on a small boat to the reefs and they spend a good hour plus going to two different locations near the reef to snorkel and they loved it!! The water was clear and beautiful. They were able to see small fishes around the reef which was amazing! I would recommend bring extra money if you are interested in snorkeling or other activities on the beach. They also had an awesome restaurant that made some really good pizza!!! This tour was great and would recommend it to everyone! You can't beat the price and can't beat what you see and experience! We give it five stars. Jerry was nice enough to drive us up the hill to where the shopping was near the cruise ships so we did not have to walk up the hill to enter in the shopping area and to head back to our ship. Jerry was great!!!

Our guide Elyn Wood was excellent. very informative and fun. The monkey and sloth park was a highlight! It was fun to get to hold the animals. cultural tour very informative and Banarama beach area was relaxing. lounge chair area was reserved for us next to the beach with free wi-fi. We had lunch at the bar and the food was good and reasonable. All and all a good choice. The bus was VERY full which is maybe the only downside.

Finding the tour guide was quite easy just follow the detailed instruction given. When we boarded the vehicle the tour guide was unware as to which tour we were doing. .We tried to explain however we could not remember the details as described in the tour .We basically had to tell the tour guide where we wanna see. nevertheless we had fun at Victors's Monkey business, and the stop at West Bay was a nice relaxing addition/We also made a stop at the Roatan Sign.

We had a hard time finding a private tour that would accommodate 10 people so we decided to give this tour a try. No regrets. It was awesome. The pick-up location was near the cruise pier and we departed on time with 18 passengers. Our first stop was at a local souvenir area where we bought our usual Christmas ornaments. Next stop was the Monkey Reserve. Everyone loved getting in the cages with the monkeys. They monkeys would sit on your shoulder and pose for pictures. The entry fee was included with the tour. Next stop was the beach. Please be aware, the road to the beach is very bumpy. It is slow going on the rough roads but well worth the effort. The beach and water were beautiful. We all had beach chairs in the shade. We were at the beach for about 2 hours. This tour was the best value we experienced. Our tour guide Annie, provided local knowledge and was accommodating to our needs. I highly recommend this tour but be aware of the rough road to the beach. We were back at the cruise pier with plenty of time to spare.

The tour started well, although the rain was horrendous we remained in good spirits. The guide seemed friendly and knowledgeable apologies - I can't remember her name. The driver did an excellent job considering the weather. Once we got the Monkey park everything went downhill. We were told because of the weather that it would cost 25 instead of 30 because we weren't going to the beach - our voucher specifically said it included ALL entrance fees but we were asked to pay extra for this - which I was angry about. We declined as a result. While we were waiting in the lobby for other members of our group to go through the exhibit, several other tour groups came through with different guides, and every single time they were informed it would cost 10 to do the same tour we had been told was normally 30. This happened half a dozen times. Obviously we had been given bad information or the price had been increased just for our benefit... We were annoyed, but happy we had made the decision not to pay. Right before we left, our guide went up to the desk and slyly and hurriedly took a wad of cash from the desk clerk, immediately trying to hide it I don't think she knew we had seen the transaction. I hate to imply wrongdoing without knowing all the facts but it seemed clearly like a kick-back. After that we just drove around a bit, not really seeing anything else of value. The day was bad partly due to weather, which is no-one's fault, but partly because we feel conned. We DO NOT recommend using this tour company!
