Roatan Underwater Activities

Diving

Diving

The entire coastline of Roatan is surrounded by healthy, vibrant coral reefs; actually the Southern tip of the world`s second largest barrier reef, The Mesoamerican Barrier Reef. The closest dive sites are just a 5 minute boat ride from shore. Roatan lies alongside the deep Southern edge of the Cayman Trench. The result is great year-round visibility and nutrient rich waters bringing in a host of animal life. It is said that 90% of all Caribbean reef species can be found off Roatan`s shores. With water temperatures kept mild year-round we dive everyday. Underwater is where Roatan really comes alive. There is every kind of diving you could ask for (except dry suit!). Explore the wrecks, deep walls, caves, canyons, night dives and vibrant shallow coral gardens. There are a number of operators where you can get certified, advanced training, or be taken out for a `fun dive` to any number of of world class dive sites.
Snorkelling

Submarine Dive

Roatan is home to the world’s deepest tourist submarine. Built and piloted by Karl, “Idabel” takes up to two passengers to over 2000ft below the waves. In this cold, pitch-dark inner space you’ll meet some of the strangest creatures ever seen by the human eye. Maybe your eye is the first!
