Comments Great new dive op in the Sandy Bay area of Roatan. Owned and operated by Texas expats. Small fast boats to many dive sites within 5-10 minutes. Back roll or gear-less entries. Safe ladders. Private dock for boat loading on site, or resort pickup available. Great gear rinse and storage area. Night security guard. New rental and snorkel gear. Fantastic covered loafing area with tables and benches for cameras, or log books. Refreshments available, and restaurant located next door. Bathrooms, and outdoor showers.

Dive sites were mainly wall type with dramatic vistas, great coral growth, and good fish life. Crew was very professional with great briefings, interesting area history, and good humor interjected.

Although this bunch is new to the island, they are very driven to successfully offer a fun, safe experience for all levels of divers. We left there as friends, and I'm sure you will as well.
