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.
