Roatan, Oct '24

The Bay Island of Honduras, Roatan— serves up a quintessential mix of Caribbean dive experiences. There are near shore shallows where divers can spend hours searching for cryptic marine life, sheltered lagoons and coastal slopes where hard corals harbor a colorful range of reef fish and sponge-covered walls that plunge into the depths. There are wreck dives, drift dives, night dives, shark dives and, for the lucky, an encounter with the biggest fish in the sea—the whale shark.

What's the diving like?

Though each of the three primary islands has its own topside personality, the seascapes are similar. Beyond coastal shallows dominated by grass beds and patch reefs, north-shore sites typically transition to walls that drop to great depths. Sites on the southern shores feature moderate to steep slopes, spur-and-groove formations and mini-walls to a depth beyond 130 feet, with offshore pinnacles rising from the sandy plateau that stretches to the mainland. Many of these walls and slopes are cut by intricate crevices, swim-throughs and canyons.

The Mesoamerican Reef system, which is the second-largest barrier reef in the world, surrounds Roatán. It provides a thriving ecosystem for an incredible variety of marine species. Roatán’s underwater world is a treasure trove for divers. You’ll find sea turtles and eagle rays, not to mention macro critters like seahorses and nudibranchs. The reefs are home to countless colorful fish, such as angelfish, parrotfish, butterflyfish, and groupers.

The Bay Islands are also home to several species of sharks. You can spot nurse sharks, reef sharks, hammerhead sharks and the occasional whale shark cruising by. Whale sharks are more commonly seen on the nearby island of Utila, where they can be encountered all year round, with peak whale-shark season between March and May and August and October. Still, they also occasionally swim by the north shore of Roatán, along with schools of dolphins.
