CASABLANCA: Dropping in by the buoy at a depth of 40ft, you will immediately notice the wealth of elk horn coral present. Following the wall downwards will lead you to an expansive sand patch, marked at 60ft, with small coral heads containing sea rods, finger coral and encrusting lettuce coral.

MANGOOSE: This dive is a cavern leading through the reef. Unlike a cave, this cavernous space is large and opens to the surface, with a fringing reef at the top allowing light to stream in. Level: Advanced Dive

KEY HOLE: This wall dive has a minimum of 25 ft and drop to 60 ft., surrounded by sponges and soft coral. There are striking canyons running through the reef and large coral boulders to swim around. This site frequently has numerous spotted drums. Level: Beginners Dive

DOLPHIN’S DEN: Dolphin's Den is teeming with life. The route from the mooring to the cave is over a shallow sandy bottom where many anemones, shrimps, crabs, fire-worms, pipe fish, and upside-down jellyfish can be found. King crabs & large green moray eels reside inside the den.

PIGEON CAY: This popular excursion takes you to the most dramatic wall dive in Roatán. Situated away from the shore and surrounded by land with low populations means this site is in almost pristine condition. There's always a large fish count and free-swimming green morays along with various rare species can be found here.

CARIB POINT WALL: This wall has a large sand patch at 45ft, making it ideal for the first dive of your holiday to ease back into diving. The wall often has schools of Jacks and a lone Barracuda patrolling it. There are spotted drum and spotted moray eels to be seen, as well as rays and flounders in the sandy area.

Dive Sites

Most of our sites are only 10-15 minutes away. You will find spur/canyon configurations, reef pinnacles, coral gardens, ledges, overhangs, caverns, drop walls, and vertical fissures. Miles of reef in Roatán offers scuba divers uncrowded and often uncharted sites to be explored by our visitors. Large black groupers and eels are a common sight. On any given dive around Roatán, one might see a Hawksbill sea turtle or ray gracefully gliding by. Roatan’s reefs are so extensive that it would take months of daily scuba diving to see even half of the known segments!

WHAT TO EXPECT ON THE TRIP:

Your guide will ask you to fill the necessary paperwork and show your certification card and ID. You will then pick up the weight needed for diving and drop off any valuables in your assigned locker.

The dive boat will have the air scuba tanks and extra weights. Your dive gear will be set up by our staff and our facilities will be shown to you. Following the boat briefing and roster call, the boat will depart to the dive sites. Most sites are within 10-15 minutes away, through the bay where the sea is usually calm.

Once you are moored, there will be a dive site briefing and then it's time to go diving! There will be fresh water, fruits and towels for you when you are back onboard. After the final roster call, the boat will head back to the dive center.

We would greatly appreciate if you could fill out our feedback form when you arrive back at the center. This is the best way for us to improve our services for you.
