Frequently Asked Questions

Jump In
  • What is included in our Adventure?
  • All cruises include snacks, a fresh BBQ lunch, & all beverages - bottled water, sodas, alcoholic beverages (local beer, wine & spirits) & snorkel gear. You can refer to the Menu page for details.
  • For cruise ship passengers, transportation is included.

  • What is the difference between Cruise Ship Sail & Snorkel Excursion & East End Snorkel & Sail Day?
  • On the Cruise Ship Sail & Snorkel Excursion, we have time for one snorkel stop at the Cow & Calf or Horseshoe in Port Royal. If anyone has booked the Dive option, there is time for a one-tank dive. If you are staying on the Island, you can join on this cruise ship excursion but you would have to be flexible on time because the cruise ship docking times are not posted until the day before. Additionally, you would need to coordinate transportation to Oakridge.
  • For those staying on the Island & choose the East End Snorkel & Sail Day, we have time for two or three snorkel stops, & a two-tank dive for the dive option.
  • -
  • What if I don't have the minimum of 6?
  • For the sailing to run, the minimum number of passengers required is 6 adults. If there are fewer in your group - we have an on-line calendar on our website. You can check there to see if there are already small groups looking to form up the minimum. If not, just let us know & we can post it & can contact you if we receive inquiries from any others.
  • Sometimes groups of four will book the day for the minimum rate of 6 guests, so that they can firm up the date. Then if we book additional guests we reduce the balance owing accordingly.
  • -
  • I do not want a pack-them-on-board booze cruise. How many passengers will be on board?
  • The catamaran is 48 ft. long & 27 ft. wide & we can comfortably accommodate 30+ guests. However, we keep our numbers closer to 15 to ensure guests have ample space & high-end service. We do take larger groups for private charters.
  • -
  • Do you do Private Charters?
  • Yes. For $1200 for the Cruise Ship Sail & Snorkel Excursion or $1450 for the East End Snorkel & Sail Day the catamaran is all yours for up to 10 people. Additional guests are included at the standard per person price. We do offer a 15% discount for groups over 20 if you book directly with us. However, if you are booking through a travel agent, resort concierge or other similar 3rd party, we will likely not be able to extend this discount.
  • -
  • What's for Lunch?
  • The buffet lunch consists of freshly made grilled chicken kebobs & shrimp kebobs, with side dishes of Honduran bean & rice, Caesar salad & caramelized plantains. There are also plenty of snacks throughout the day to give you energy - our cook's fabulouss homemade salsa dip/chips & pizza bruschetta. Save room for a dessert of homemade carrot cake & banana cake! Unlimited beverages include bottled water, sodas, & alcoholic beverages - local beer, wine & spirits, & our very popular pina coladas fresh from the blender!
  • -
  • Can you accommodate special diets?
  • Yes, we would be pleased to accommodate special dietary needs.  Just let us know, so that we can plan accordingly. Also, if there are any foods that you are allergic to, or just don’t like, let us know.
  • -
  • What should I bring for the Adventure?
  • Wear your swim suit, & bring a towel, sun screen, sun glasses/hat & a change of clothes, if desired. Don’t forget your camera – an underwater camera, or a disposable underwater camera is great for photos of the reef & your friends out there snorkeling!
  • -
  • Can I pay my balance by credit card?
  • We really appreciate cash payments but know that is not always feasible. We do have a credit card swipe machine on board, which accepts Visa & MasterCard.
  • -
  • What kind of money should I bring?
  • US bills are accepted everywhere on the island. Euros & Canadian dollars, however, are accepted only in very few businesses. We accept US currency or local Lempiras.
  • -
  • Are there any other fees/taxes?
  • Taxes are included in the rate. In addition to the transportation if you are staying on the island, the only other potential expense would be optional tipping (see below) or if you'd like to purchase a Radical Adventures T-shirt ($10).
  • -
  • What about tipping the crew?
  • As in any service oriented business, gratuities are customary & voluntary. If you feel your crew provided you a great level of service & you would like to thank them for the service, tips are appreciated. As a guideline, we have found that satisfied guests generally leave about 10%. Gratuities are shared equally among the crew.
  • -
  • Are there bugs?
  • Ah, yes – the Tropics. It is a jungle down here! But because we are floating on the salt water, & we generally have a nice breeze, this keeps the no-see-ums & mosquitoes away.
  • -
  • Will I get seasick?
  • It can happen. Some people are much more prone to being seasick than others. If you have ever gotten seasick, or carsick then you should definitely take some seasick meds at least an hour BEFORE you board the catamaran. You should purchase some over-the-counter meds & try them out before – some meds can make you really drowsy.
  • -
  • Do you have Telephone & Internet?
  • We have two cell phones on the boat for emergency use. Our Internet service works as long as we are within range of a cell phone tower. You are welcome to use our service while on the boat. For your mobile phone, you may need a temporary international plan for your device to work.
  • -
  • Can I smoke on the boat?
  • For the safety and comfort everyone, smoking is not permitted on board.
  • -
  • Would you like me to bring anything down with me?
  • Many times visitors have said to us - oh, if only I had known, I just sent a bunch of stuff to the Goodwill! So we will include this question for those of you who would like to make a difference here. There are many areas of need on Roatan. Government funding for schools & medical clinics is slim to non-existent. If you would like to help (and this is totally optional on your part!) & you have some items lying around your house, you could think about putting any of the following items in your bags:
    • For Schools & Orphanages:
    • Books in Spanish or English - fiction or educational (Science, History, Geography, Grammar, Computers, Sewing, Trades - anything, really), writing & coloring supplies, art supplies, games & sporting equipment, fishing supplies, kids shoes, baby clothes. Anything else you can think of - everything will find a good use.
    • For Clinics:
    • Any & all over-the-counter medications – pain relievers, eye/ear drops, cough/cold meds, etc), vitamins especially children’s vitamins, first aid supplies, reading glasses, toothpaste, toothbrushes, educational materials.
  • What if I still have questions?

  • No problem. Send us an email on the Contact Page with your question, & we will get right back to you with an answer as soon as we can.
