One of our most spectacular dives, S1 (also known as Dolphin’s Den) is a cave 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 are to be found. King crabs and large green Moray Eels reside inside the cave, as well as many schools of fish. The highlight is a dolphin skeleton which is a natural feature. Many dolphin skeletons have appeared over the years but gradually wash out and scatter. Now one skeleton remains. The cave has many compartments, some open to the surface and some enclosed: there is usually light streaming in from openings to the surface, but a torch is essential for this dive.
Depth: The maximum depth is 55 feet. The majority of the dive is spent at 20-40 feet. Difficulty: Intermediate
This dive site has excellent conditions and visibility. S2 (also known as McNab's Pinnacles) features striking canyons running through the reef and large coral boulders to swim around. This site always has many spotted drums, toadfish, spotted garden eels, and turtles.
Depth: The reef has a plateau at 15 feet then drops down a wall to a sandy bottom at a max depth of 60 feet.
S3 (also known as The Mongoose) is one of our most popular dives. This adventure is a cavern leading through the reef. Unlike a cave, this cavernous space is large and open to the surface, with a fringing reef at the top allowing light to stream in. The dive starts on the inside of the reef and follows through the cavern to a second mooring on the outside. There are many clusters of lobsters, barracuda, midnight parrotfish, snappers, and moray eels.
Depth: The maximum depth is 80 feet -although the majority of the cavern is shallower (40-60 feet). Experience Level: Intermediate
Being very close to the East end of the island, S4 (also known as Gretchen’s Shelf) is different every time, with a host of different creatures. Sometimes spotted eagle rays and turtles are seen here, as well as large barracuda, trunk fish and puffer fish. There is a long, dramatic canyon at 40 feet which leads back to the mooring line.
Depth: The maximum depth is usually 60 feet, though depths of 100 feet can be reached.
This popular excursion takes you to the most dramatic wall dive on Roatan. The hour-long boat journey takes you through the mangrove cut, giving you a chance to see rarely seen wildlife, such as saltwater alligators and cranes. S5 (also known as Morat Wall) is situated away from the shore, and the low population levels on the surrounding land mean this site is in almost pristine condition. There are huge numbers of fish, free-swimming green morays and rare species to be found here. The mooring leads to a sand patch at 35-40 feet. Then the wall drops off as far as the eye can see. It is possible to surface at a nearby dock or to go to Jade Beach on Barberetta. This beach is beautiful and tranquil, making a great spot for lunch & relaxation between dives. The second dive can then be a drift dive off Barberetta, or a return to S5, before heading for home.
Depth: Usually 60 feet but any depth can be reached.
