Comments Liber and Anja can help fledgling photographers and will indulge the most camera-loving of divers. They have desire to look for (and find) whatever you want to see, both large and small. If you are thinking about trying underwater photography, this is the place to begin.
I am NOT a photographer but like the deliberate pace of the dives so that I felt if something was to be found, we were likely to find it. We managed to find 2 toadfish and a frogfish, something I haven't seen in Roatan (or elsewhere in the Caribbean) plus seahorses.
