Where we are diving
Roatan is located in the Bay Islands of Honduras. Just a few feet away from the shore lies the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, the largest barrier reef in the northern hemisphere. There you will find pristine waters and an abundance of marine life. It’s home to thick, vibrant coral, playful dolphins, and schools of tropical fish. It is also well known for its macro critters.
The island’s reefs and drop-offs are perfect for novices and experts alike. And the warm water and gentle currents make for great year-round visibility.
Roatan has approximately 35 dive sites, from West Bay to Man of War Cay to Anthony’s Key. These dive sites offer everything from shipwrecks to peaceful eel gardens. Coral walls begin as shallow as 20 feet below the surface and drop into the depths of the Caribbean.

What prior travelers say
Know Before You Go
Electricity – Electricity is 110 volts, 60 cycle AC, the same as in the United States. Visitors from countries with other electrical standards will need adaptors.
Passport Validity – You need a passport that is valid for 6 months after your arrival. You will receive a 90-day tourist Visa when you arrive. You should check to see if there are any special requirements for citizens of your country but currently, this is all that is required for the USA, Canada, UK, and European Union.
Money Exchange – On the island, US Dollars are used as much as the local currency, and most places have their prices in US dollars. Many businesses will give you change back in Lempiras even if you pay in dollars. It is best not to bring bills over $20 as larger bills may not be accepted.
Dress Code – The island is very relaxed and in most restaurants casual to informal is normal and accepted.
Language – While Spanish is the official language, English is spoken universally. Roatan islanders speak a Creole English. This broken English gets its roots in French, English, and Spanish as well as a few words unique to the Garifuna culture.
Water – We encourage guests to drink bottled water or the purified water provided in each guest room, although the tap water at the resort comes from a local well and is safe.
