Roatan Island Tours is currently an independent specialist tour company. It is owned and managed by Averyl Morris who founded the company in 1993. The company prides itself in being the first and only tour operator to provide tours to the east end of the island, highlighting the Garifuna Culture and the mangrove tunnels, thus offering their clients a diverse cross-selection of tour options.
From the very beginning, the Company’s aim was to offer tours which are inspiring to travellers, but also bring benefits to the local people and the environment of Roatan. Without involving local people, good quality tourism is not sustainable.
The Garifuna tour was directly created by Averyl Morris (owner) this gave opportunities to the Garifuna people who are the most ethnic race group on the island to showcase their culture by performing their traditional dance and preparing their typical food. A percentage of the fee to experience the Garifuna Culture is given to the Punta Gorda Community , home to the Garifuna people. Not only empowering the locals, the tour created additional Roatan magic for the passengers who participate in the tour.
Roatan Island Tours is backed by a committed team who really have a passion for what they are doing. The Operations Manager Pattie Bennett has been employed by the company since 1997 , the majority of the well trained 20 tour guides who are registered with the Bay Island Professional Tour Guide Assocoation and 20 van drivers have been with the company since 1998. Clean, well maintained , air conditioned mini vans and air conditioned Coaster buses are used for the tours.
Roatan Island Tours has 18 years of experience specifically in their local knowledge and history of Roatan, community commitment and extensive exposure in allowing local people to benefit from the tourism that Roatan Island Tours has created.
