Two great opportunities await you on this excursion. You can choose one or the other, or stay for both!
Nestled just thirty miles off the Caribbean Coast of Honduras, Roatan is serviced by several direct flights and offers beautiful paddling, diverse local culture and world class snorkeling. This is a big experience combining kayaking, snorkeling and tropical biology all with a twist of the rich cultural soup of this island group. We don't insulate you from the local people, but instead work with them for a lot of our daily needs like seafood, bread, local transport and general sharing because they are as interested in you as you are them. The people of Honduras are every bit as appealing as the water and mountainscapes. We'll venture daily from our comfortable tropical fruit farm base in the village of Punta Blanca. Each two bedroom island-style casita has its own bath with freshwater air temperature showers and a nice screened-in porch to enjoy the breezes and the sounds of the sea. We also have a couple of ocean view hard sided yurts with their own bathrooms. You get all the comforts of home, minus ringing telephones, roads, and to-do lists. Our front yard is a coral reef! Meals are served from a central kitchen/deck area and are al fresco...as they should be. You can start each day with a morning stretching/yoga session on our deck over the sea. Professionally guiding since 1982, Michael Grayhas been fortunate enough to be able to work out of a kayak in Alaska, Patagonia, New Zealand, Honduras, Belize, Florida and all over his home waters of the Great Lakes. He's been a speaker at over 50 kayak symposia nationwide.Whether its teaching outdoor cookery in New Zealand, teaching people to dive for lobster out of kayaks in the Caribbean, or fly fishing wild rivers of Idaho he has a wealth of experience that he enjoys sharing. He is an ACA Level 4 Coastal KayakInstructorand anACA Level 2 SUP Instructor.
