Because the coral reef is so massive and breathtaking, Roatan diving is becoming a must for those interested in scuba diving and snorkeling – hence the dive resorts and villas nestled here and there on the island.

The sea life and coral come in every color of the rainbow. Enveloped by the blue-green waters, you will see fascinating clumps of coral which range in shape, color, and size.

You will be left speechless from the pure beauty while you're diving or snorkeling in Roatan and you never know what you will spot in this magical place of strange and beautiful sights.

Pirate's Gold

Fueled by the whispered rumors of ancient treasure, we will now be moving to various locations on Roatan Island – some of which are said in stories to contain the forgotten gold and treasures of pirate visitors from long ago.

In the 1700s, pirates had control of the island and it is still said that some of their buried treasure and booty waits to be discovered to this day.
