Scuba Diving in Roatan
Never been scuba diving? Now is the perfect time and Roatan is the perfect place to fix that.
You will be picked up at the pier and transferred to the dive shop on the east end of Roatan. The drive is approximately 25 minutes for this Roatan excursion. Upon arrival, you will meet with your instructor and begin your class.
Your resort course will begin with a short video and approximately 30 minutes of classroom instruction. This will be followed by an in-water practice with your instructor, where you will cover a few basic skills necessary to dive safely.
You will then be taken on a controlled, shallow dive on Roatan's spectacular reef, under the close supervision of your instructor. Just a short boat ride from shore, an amazing world awaits you under the sea. Depending on your rate of breathing, the dive should last approximately 30 minutes. Although one dive does not make you an expert or certified diver, it will count as your first dive towards a scuba diver or open water diver certification. And what an incredible school room!
You will then have some free time to ask questions, enjoy the beach or pool area, or purchase lunch at the nearby restaurant.
Please Note: A Roatan Marine Park fee of $5 US (additional cost) per person will be collected upon arrival. You will be required to complete a health questionnaire prior to your dive. Please CLICK HERE to view and print the form.
