Wall diving on Roatan is truly impressive and is what our island is most famous for amongst divers. Vertical drop-offs offer some of the best visibility and variety of marine life. Giant sponges, sea plumes, deep water sea fans and black corals provide habitat for a wealth of creatures and the proximity to greater depths means encounters with larger pelagics such as eagle rays, hammerhead sharks, manta rays and large jacks are possible. Divers of all levels can enjoy these breathtaking walls that start as shallow as 20 feet/ 6 metres and drop to 100 feet/30 metres and beyond.
Diver’s tip: Look occasionally into the blue for larger fish and keep an eye on your depth gauge.
