Comments This was my second trip to Roatan. My first was in 2008 to CoCo View, so I was looking forward to diving the north side of Roatan.

Diving - Even though the resort was full, there are so many dive boats that we only had 11 divers on our boat. During the week, they arrange it so that you get to all the "hot spots" no matter what boat.

I was looking forward to a slower paced trip, so I appreciated the three boat dives per day (four on the two days with night dives). The shore diving was reported to be good, but I did not feel in the mood. So my trip consisted of 19 dives. You load your dive gear on the boat from your locker in the morning, and wash it and store it back in the locker at the end of the dive day.

First thing - turtles. If you want to see turtles, April in Roatan is as close to a sure thing as you can get. We average at least one or two on every day dive.

The reef seemed in pretty good shape - no real evident bleaching. The divemaster led us to one juvenile sea horse during the week, and we saw most of the standards. We did not see a spotted eagle ray, but some people on our boat who were staying longer saw one on Friday afternoon, after the rest of us were finished for the week (oh, well). Visibility was good.
