Dive starts deep along the flanks of the ship. You continue across the decks, then up a coral encrusted canyon to the extraction point. Short dive, but what do you expect for 100+ feet?

Decent modern wrek, broken up by hurricanes, in about 100 feet. Home to about 6 friendly and large groupers

Ship wreck (sunk in 1998) with a tunnel to dive below, inhabited by a friendly green moray and lots of big groupers!

You have to go to see by yourself. For wreck lovers and begginers is a nice spot to dive. Reach sea life.

Neat wreck, wonderful sealife: the garden eels are wonderful to see and a green Moray Eel will often swim with you!! It is a very popular site, so it can get kind of crowded with other divers. Well worth the trip.

Came here on a cruise and one of the activity directors/sales people said snorkeling over a wreck you'd see twice the fish. Maybe diving a wreck that's true because we saw no fish by the wreck. Thankfully the reef system nearby was amazing and easily the prettiest I've ever seen.

It's a great wreck, well preserved. There were several other divers of course, unfortunately some of them weren't very polite or thoughtful divers.

I've done this dive 5 times over the various visits to Roatan, never disappointed! One dive it was crystal clear like diving in a fish bowl but this time it was a bit stirred up. Never the less still a worth while dive! The grouper never let you down and continue to entertain with their antics. The eel still generously... More
