Itinerary

We begin our day welcoming you on board our catamaran Raya Aguila, which is docked at Parrot Tree Marina on the south shore, just east of French Cay Harbor.  Our Port Royal Tour lets you relax taking in the warm Caribbean breezes and magnificent shoreline views. Once we leave the dock, we will be hoisting the sails and setting our course. Heading east you will see the colourful resorts, island homes and the tropical coastline of Roatan as we cruise alongside the extensive coral reefs.  Arriving in Port Royal you will begin to feel and see the tranquil beauty, history and remoteness.

In Port Royal we will stop for snorkeling at one of the stunning coral reefs to see the numerous Caribbean fishes, staghorn coral and large fan corals gracefully waving with the ebb and flow. At certain areas of the reef you can peer over the majestic coral wall into the blue abyss.  Perhaps a turtle or stingray will join us on the exploration!

After your snorkel you may relax on deck while chilled beverages and delicious snacks are served as we continue our sail to another mooring where you will be served a scrumptious lunch on board.  After lunch you may go for another snorkel or just relax on deck until we leave to sail back to the dock.

Itinerary

Our Cayos Cochinos Tour is up to mother nature. If the winds and waves are in our favour we will hoist the sails for a 3 hour sail to the islands of Cayos Cochinos Park with its lush vegetation and primeval hardwood forests. This marine reserve is paradise once again.

The Cayos Cochinos are a group of 13 small islands and cays 24 miles from Roatan and are only accessible by private boat and water taxi. The entire archipelago within a 5 mile radius has been declared a biological preserve and is set aside as a National Marine Monument, home to the Coral Reef Foundation, and managed by the Smithsonian Institute. Due to the park being a protected area for 20 years and the lack of development, the coral reefs are pristine and unspoiled with fabulous snorkeling!

For more information about Cayos Cochinos take a look under our Destinations tab on this website.

You are in for a special treat with our Sunset & More Cruise. We begin our afternoon welcoming you on board our 40 foot Catamaran Raya Aguila, which is docked at Parrot Tree Marina, just east of French Cay Harbor. Once we leave the dock we will be setting our course for our 4 1/2 hour excursion along the south side of Roatan past areas that few visitors see towards the West End Point.

After we leave the harbour we will hoist the sails for an exhilarating sail west along the tropical coastline of Roatan. While underway you’ll enjoy cold beverages and snacks, taking in the warm Caribbean breezes and magnificent shoreline views.

After we round West End Point we will stop to snorkel at the stunning West End Wall and iron shore where you can delight in snorkeling the beautiful coral reefs with their abundant fish and the resident rays, barracuda and eels. Large coral formations provide protection for many juvenile and adult reef fishes and lobsters. Following the snorkel the sun will begin to retire as the beams of sunshine become a stunning glow over the horizon. The sky takes on its own mural of colours with bright oranges and blazing pink tones reflecting off the white fluffy clouds.

This magnificent sky will guide us along the shoreline of West End Marine Park while we serve champagne and hors d’oeuvres as you gaze at the final colours to close another perfect day in paradise. Following the sunset, we will take you dockside in West Bay to say our farewells.

As you may have noticed from our ACTIVITIES page, there are so many choices on the island. If you are looking for something that will make everyone happy, talk with us and together we can create a special day for you.  We have also partnered with a wonderful gentlemen on the island who provides land tours. He is born and raised here, speaks very good English, and knows every detail of this beautiful island.  Perhaps a little water time and a little land time would work for you?

Let us know what you, your family or group would like to do and we can customize a great time. We have the boat, lots of water all around and a stunning island… so the possibilities are endless!

Whatever the occasion, Zeppelin Dive & Sail can customize a special afternoon, evening or full day charter for you.

Story to share – We had a couple who were stopping into Roatan’s port for the day aboard a cruise ship.  The gentlemen booked their time on the island with us and specifically wanted to know if we could take them to a secluded beach during their outing.  Sure we said!

While we were sailing, he got up and moved next to his girlfriend, kneeling beside her on the deck. I could tell something was up. I grabbed the camera and snuck along the deck to capture this incredibly romantic moment. A proposal of marriage!  It was magical for all of us on board. (We just happened to have a chilled bottle of bubbly, so it was perfect.) He told us later that he was originally going to propose on the secluded beach, but he was so overcome with the beauty of Roatan’s shoreline, the crystal blue waters, the sunny day, gentle breezes, sailing along with the love of his life… he could not wait a moment longer!

We invite you aboard to make some special memories for yourselves.
