I don't usually go on excurisons in these ports, except went snorkeling once was super fun, we got to see little fish and coral reef! Usually in bahamas, just go to the beach nothing much to do. In alaska, I went on a helicopter excursion which was fun we went up on a mountain of snow, and i got to play in it :))

In Roatan We did a beach excursion with drinks included (adults only) it was terrific. I'm a beach kind of guy

(shout out to Salva Vida a great hondurian beer)

Sadly, our favorite is no longer available. We booked a cruise around this excursion. The trip was a pirate treasure hunt on the Brig Unicorn. This ship was charted by Disney for the first "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie and St. Lucia was quite proud of that. We set sail from the dock with plans to take Pigeon Island (a real place). As we were under weigh the captain announces there are NO passengers on his ship, we are all crew. The real crew round up some of the "passengers" to go up in the riggings and unfurl the sails as set out for destination. As we approach Pigeon Island we are "shot" at from the fort (real place) to stop our progress. The captain yells, "man the cannons". The cannons are rolled out and all the children on board get to pull the cord for them to shoot back at the Island. (Wished I was a child at that moment). Eventually, we take Pigeon Island and go ashore in small tender boats. We are given treasure maps, with clues to find the keys to the real treasure. There are 6 keys and several other prizes in these hidden locations. We are also able to see a lot of the island, climb to the top to see the old fort and/or have a libation/snack at the shop near the dock. Once the allotted time has passed and all the keys are found (the crew make sure) we head back to the Brig Unicorn on the tenders. Those with keys (we actually had 2) line up in front of a chest and try our luck with the lock. Neither of ours opened the lock. The prizes, however, were a bottle of champagne (okay sparkling wine) and a gift certificate at Diamonds International. So, we sail back to the port while having unlimited rum punch (for those of age of course). Forgot to mention it was raining and we all looked like drunk (even those not drinking) drowned rats. Many of us decided to follow the winner to Diamonds International to see the prize designated by the certificate. Much to everyone's surprise it was a 13ct., trillion cut amethyst, we were expecting a chip of a diamond. My guess is that DI found it too costly to continue to sponsor, so it stopped this particular excursion. It was great fun and I'd do it again; I know at least where two keys are hidden.

I've never been to these ports, however, I'd recommend The Crystal Caves one for Bermuda. Our guide added a lot of humor to it like "This is my favorite formation here, "The Statue Of Liberty" and if you look over there, you'll see the spaceship from "Star Trek"....yes we spend way to much time down in these caves!"😂

Have never been to Roatan so no comments on there but the best excursions that we have had usually involved food and drinks on a beach somewhere. Nicest excursion outside of food and drink on the beach would have to be The Baths on Virgin Gorda which you do from the island of Tortola
