Kayak Utila is happy to be expanding our paddle reach to Roatan! Join us and established expedition group, Uncommon Adventures, and be a part of the 2011 Roatan sea kayaking season!
You’ll fly into the island of Roatan, which has an international airport receiving direct flights from Houston, Miami and Atlanta. We’ll venture daily from our comfortable tropical fruit farm base in the village of Punta Blanca. Each two bedroom island-style casita has a nice screened-in porch to enjoy the breezes and the sounds of the sea. We have all the comforts of home, minus ringing telephones, roads, and to-do lists. Our front yard is a coral reef! Meals are served from a central kitchen/deck area and are al fresco…as they should be:
Day 1: Flight arrival on Roatan. We’ll pick you up and transport you via Minibus to our base at the far East end of Roatan, Punta Blanca. Tonight you’ll enjoy a special seafood dinner and have some time to settle in and explore your surroundings.
Day 2 – 7: We’ll be doing a variety of day trips out of our comfortable lodge location, beginning with day paddles in each direction to discover mangrove tunnels, local culture and a part of the island where the water IS the road.
Once you’ve acclimated a bit, we’ll start venturing further afield to explore reefs, secret channels, big BLUE water and the Pigeon Cayes with some of best snorkeling in the Bay Islands.
You can even learn to brace, roll and surf in 80 degree water or just hang in the hammock and watch the hummingbirds.
Enjoy terrific seafood feasts each night and sleep in the comfort of simple bedrooms in our comfortable cluster of casitas at the edge of the sea. Hey, how bad can that be?
Day 8: After breakfast, taxi to the airport for return flights or trip extensions of your choice.
