Did deep water for advanced at this site mind blowing with 6 dives under my belt we hit 105 feet and played for a few minutes. Pretty busy spot tho. But it's Roatan doesn't get a whole lot better from what I here

Very big ship and a huge coral wall on the way down. The floor is around 105'. Watch your air as you can watch grouper, garden eel, green moray eel, etc forever. Visibility was about 80' when went but still nice. Water temp great as always! KENT at Mayan Divers makes it all better!

Easy wreck dive with several swim throughs into wheel house, cargo areas, etc. Easy to linger too long so watch your bottom time! Lots of Garden Eels at 110 feet on the sandy bottom. Ship was sunk intentionally and then was further "wrecked" by a passing storm. We went with Anthony's Key Dive Operation - Top Notch!

This is one of those wreck dives you have to do when in Roatan. Large ship, lots of interesting marine life. Saw Garden eels, 5 foot Grouper, shrimp, and more.

Easily my favorite wreck off Roatan. 100+ ft sitting on a sandy bottom in the middle of a field of garden eels sits El Aquila. There is one black grouper that always hangs out with me on this dive.

My friends and I dove the El Aquila wreck while staying at Anthony's Key. It is only about a 10 minute boat ride from their dock. The wreck lies in 110 feet of water at the keel and has several resident groupers. The sandy area around the wreck is home to a large colony of garden eels and the wreck... More

I got to dive this wreck as part of my advanced course and what a treat it was! 107 feet to the sandy patch near the wreck- saw lots of grouper and garden eels! Fireworks on some parts of the mast! The wall nearby is a great place to level up and extend dive time!

Great viz, nice wreck with few good swim through. Eel garden, a few morays and tons of huge groupers. And a nearby reef for the second half of the dive.
