Enforced diving restrictions  
We were given a profile with depth and time limits.  You could explore a
bit by yourself but the divemaster liked to keep the group together as much
as possible.  It was an understanding that everyone would stay together but
we didn't have to be single file.

Coconut Tree Divers is in the town of West End on Roatan.  They are run by
a husband and wife team that make you feel extremely welcome.  The boat is
spacious for divers and equipment and can accomodate up to 16 divers. 
There was a maximum of 10 divers when I was there.  They also have a full
service classroom and certify many levels of divers.  The divemasters are
very friendly and safety concious.  They will give you a profile and time
limit for the dive and ask that you stay within eyesight of the group.  If
you wander they will herd you back but they are not tapping on their tanks
constantly to keep the group tight and bumping into each other.  They also
point out a lot of sea life during each dive, whether it be small or big. 
Diving was very comfortable and relaxed with this outfit.  They are one of
the best bargains on Roatan having charged $15 per dive, including
equipment.

I stayed at Seagrape Plantation which is a short walk from Coconut Tree
Divers.  Accomodations were very clean and comfortable with a hammock hung
on the front porch for afternoon naps.  Everything in West End was in
walking distance.  There are plenty of restaurants and shopping along the
main road.  It was a very relaxing and enjoyable trip.
