Enjoy Honduras’ natural world up close and even hands-on by snorkeling shallow waters teeming with colorful starfish, followed by a relaxing beach break.
After arrival in Trujillo, you will board a boat that is ideal for snorkeling and cruise to Starfish Bay. It’s an appropriate name for this body of water, which varies in depth from four to six feet, making it easy to negotiate even if you are an inexperienced snorkeler.
Arriving at the bay, you will receive your equipment and a safety orientation before being led into the water. The snorkeling is conducted from an anchored platform, making it easier to enter and exit the water. During your hour of snorkeling, you should see plenty of starfish and you may even hold one. Starfish are also called sea stars because of their shape and are closely related to sea urchins and sand dollars. Starfish have the uncanny ability to regenerate limbs and even an entirely new body from just a portion of a severed limb. All this from a creature lacking a brain.
At the conclusion of your snorkeling time, you’ll re-board your boat and head to Casa Kiwi where you’ll have a one hour beach break and be treated to a casual lunch of typical Honduran food before transferring back to the ship
