Which port on the Western Caribbean itinerary for NCL Getaway best for snorkeling?

Recommended Posts



I'll be on the Norwegian Getaway on February 11, 2018 which goes to the following ports:


Costa Maya - Mexico (private cruise port)

Harvest Caye - Belize (private island)

Roatan - Honduras

Cozumel - Mexico


Does anyone have an opinion on which of these ports has the best snorkeling?

The snorkeling in Roatan is excellent. I did the Maya Key excursion and that was the best snorkeling I've ever done. I've also heard it is excellent at Tabayana Beach/West End.


Cozumel has excellent scuba diving by boat (not shore). I also snorkeled at Money Bar at Cozumel and it was nice to get in the warm water and a fun, cheap way to spend the day, but not that great of snorkeling really as far as being able to see many fish, or any living coral.


I haven't been to the other ports you mention so can't speak to those.
