Comments I have dove with Wet & Wild Divers at Las Rocas Resort during four of my trips to Roatan and felt that someone should post some information about them. Wet & Wild Divers is a full service PADI dive shop offering a full suite of courses as well as daily boat diving.

The shop has three dive boats of varying sizes. The boats are allocated based on the kinds of dive activities taking place at a given time. Most trips usually had between five and six divers with a maximum of eight. There are two morning dives and one afternoon dive. All surface intervals take place back at the resort where you can get soft drinks and a snack. All dive sites are no more than 15 minutes from the resort (with the exception of the winter months when they dive more on the south side of the island). The boat I was on most of the time had an oxygen kit, a spare regulator, and a spare tank. There is no camera rinse tank on board but fresh water is available for rinsing gear right at the dock.

The dive briefings were thorough. The divemasters were very attentive to people in the water and never hestiated to provide help when necessary. In general, dive times were 45-50 minutes but if some divers were good with their air they would let them stay down longer. Divers who were more experienced could dive their own profiles as long as they stayed relatively near the remainder of the group. The boat captains were extremely helpful and always offered to lend a hand with divers when gearing up and coming out of the water.

Most of the diving is wall diving. You can see all the standard beautiful Caribbean fish along with eels, turtles, and an occasional ray. Roatan has a few wrecks to offer as well. El Aguila is a wreck that is now in three pieces that sits at about 110 feet. It's well worth visiting.

The accommodations are plain, but clean. The restaurant is unusually good for a resort of this size. The staff go out of their way to do what they can to help you.
