CoCoView is the place to go in Roatan if you want to dive.  4 boat dives a
day (including 1 a.m. and 1 p.m. drop-off dive) and unlimited shore diving
with access to 2 good walls, a ship wreck and DC3 wreck.  Most diving is
wall diving.  Corals and sponges are healthy.  Surprisingly few fish
(either large or small).  Excellent facilities for divers both on shore
(with dip tanks, lockers, etc.) and on boats.  Nitrox is readily available
for a flat fee of $100 or $6 per tank.  Dive master was ok, but not
stellar.  Dive shop employees went out of their way to make field repairs
and quick turn-around, with low service charges.  Food was better than
expected for an all-inclusive and beer prices were reasonable ($1.50
/bottle for local beer).  Owners were every present making for diligent
employees.  Bring plenty of bug spray or use cactus juice (a product
invented in Roatan and manufactured in TX), because they aren't kidding
about the no-see-ums.
