Roatan diving is famous for the world-class wall dives along with several sunken ships where purposeful artificial reefs were created. The fringe reefs are easily accessable from land by a mere 10 minute boat ride. Between the beach and open water are a variety of topicgraphical features providing unique habitats for abundant marine life. The reef walls are nuturient rich waters that sustains the lush reefs and brings a great wealth of bio-diversity from throughout the Caribbean. It is estimated that 90% of all marine life in the Caribbean is present and seen while Roatan diving. The outer reef slopes gently to the reef crest that is visable by breaking waves.

There are over 100 dive sites along the North and South shores of the Island more heavily frequented near the West End area.

“Something, most certainly, happens to a diver’s emotions underwater.

It is not merely a side effect of the pleasing, vaguely erotic sensation of water pressure on the body.

Nor is it alone the peculiar sense of weightlessness, which permits a diver to hang motionless in open water,

observing sea life large as whales around him; not the ability of a diver,

descending in that condition, to slowly tumble and rotate in all three spatial planes.

It is not the exhilaration from disorientation that comes when one’s point of view starts to lose its “lefts” and “down”

and gains instead something else, a unique perception that grows out of the ease of movement in three dimensions.

It is not from the diminishment of gravity to a force little more emphatic than a suggestion.

It is not solely exposure to an unfamiliar intensity of life.

It is not a state of rapture with the bottomless blue world beneath one’s feet…

it is some complicated mix of these emotions, together with the constant proximity of real terror.”

Barry Lopez, About This Life
