Private island get-away
Where we are diving
A favorite destination of trip leader Jim Hayes, Dunbar Rock’s reef is a protected marine reserve making it an ideal spot for scuba diving. Part of a volcanic and coral mountain range called The Bonacca Ridge, Guanaja marks the beginning of the second largest barrier reef in the world – the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef. You get the opportunity to dive vertical walls, lava tunnels and wrecks including the nearby Jado Trader. Jado Trader happens to be one of the most sought-after wrecks in the Caribbean! There are also more than 300 identified fish species in the Bay Island waters. Scuba divers frequently see Angelfish, Hamlets, Butterfly fish, Creole Wrasse, Grouper, Jackfish, Moray eels, Octopus, Parrotfish and Nurse sharks! The Dunbar Rock dive center is conveniently located just off the docks on the island.
