“Meh, it's a wreck”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

This is supposed to be one of the landmark dives on Roatan, but as far as wreck dives go, was pretty mediocre. It's pretty much personal preference, but IMHO, there are garden eels here and super huge groupers, and that was it. There are much prettier sites to see on Roatan as a diver.

BTW, there is another wreck we saw on the same trip, the Odyssey, that is totally worth it: we went with barefoot divers out of Palmetto Bay, and it was much more interesting as well as much less-dived. Our group of 4 were the only ones there on the day that we went to go see it, and it was spectacular, and the reef we finished our "swimming safety stop" on was amazing! Healthy coral, beautiful swim-throughs, etc.

“The wreck was a wreck, but the groupers were a bonus!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

After a quick deep dive on the wreck, you get to visit the large groupers in the shallows by the mooring. I was the first diver in the water, so they all swam up to me, expecting to be fed; luckily they were not aggressive. So I knew what was waiting after the wreck experience. Vis was not great on the day we were there, and I think I would have been disappointed after the long boat ride if I hadn't had such a great experience with the groupers.

“El Aquila Wreck Dive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Excellent and not to be missed. Each time we visit AKR we dive the wreck and it's great each time! AKR has top of the line boats, equipment and employees that take care of you on and off the boat. The Resort is truly 5 Star.
