At Paya Bay snorkelers are treated like V.I.P.s. Whether you opt to snorkel right from shore or you take the snorkel boat out, you will have many opportunities to explore the reef. The ultimate snorkeling experience is the trip to Pigeon Cay, which we strongly suggest! Snorkeling is available right from the shore at Secret Cove. A handy ladder is available to facilitate getting in and out of the sea. This area has a good variety of hard and soft corals and even offers a drop-off experience as the water deepens dramatically at the edge of the coral plateau. Some snorkeling guests also paddle a kayak out to the barrier reef and snorkel as they pull the kayak along. To increase the variety of snorkeling experiences, Paya Bay also offers two daily snorkeling boat trips to various excellent snorkeling sites we have identified inside the barrier reef. The boat leaves at 10AM and 2:30PM. No avid snorkeler should miss an excursion to Pigeon Cay, widely considered one of the top places to snorkel in the Caribbean. Paya Bay offers a weekly excursion to the cay if enough guests are interested in making the trip. Most guests who participate in this great excursion state that it is one of the highlights of their vacation. While we have some snorkeling equipment for guests use, Honduran Public Health officials have asked us to recommend that visitors purchase and bring their own equipment with them. This is just a common sense step to ensure everyone's good health. More info here.
