Cabañas on Clark’s Cay
Where we are diving
Clark’s Cay is a private island getaway that you will never forget. Your own island to relax and dive. Clark’s Cay is located just east of Guanaja and is part of the volcanic and coral mountain range called The Bonacca Ridge. The area is home to the second largest barrier reef in the world, the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef and offers some of the most virgin reefs the Caribbean has to experience.
There are over 50 named dive sites near Clark’s Cay and about six more that the dive staff keeps secret for their special guests like us. Diving near the cay you will find a variety of pinnacles, walls and wrecks to explore, including the Jado Trader, one of the most popular wrecks in the Caribbean. Visibility is usually around 100 feet, so you will be able to spot all the nurse sharks, green and hawksbill turtles and moray eels freely swimming around you.
Registration closes soon!
Jim Allen, Open Water Diver Instructor
Jim was originally introduced to scuba diving by the British Sub Aqua Club while studying as an exchange student at the University of Surrey; England in 1983. He overheard a diver telling an adventure story and asked to join the table. They took him into the club and taught him how to dive. His first open-water dive seemed simple enough in the English Channel on a WWII wreck. Every weekend he went wherever the club was diving and eventually did all the dives required to become certified. Upon returning to the U.S, Jim joined an SSI shop in Lansing, MI and earned his Divemaster certification. After retiring from the Army Reserve, he found the time to further his professional dive career and ultimately got certified as an Instructor in 2020.
