Roatan Night Dives
The reef takes on a new look as the nocturnal creatures become more active, and guests are often treated to views of octopus, unfolding basket stars, spiny lobster and more! Just before sunset, AKR’s dive fleet departs for twice weekly boat night dives (Tuesdays and Thursdays — 2 night dives are scheduled to accommodate mid-week check-ins). Night dives are typically moored dives.
Flashlights are available for rent through the photo shop to enhance your night vision.
Roatan Wreck Dives
Type: 230 ft. double deck cargo vessel
Depth: 100 to 110 feet
Sunk in: 1997
Skill: Intermediate to advance
Location: Northwest shore of Roatan, a two minute boat ride from AKR
"El Aguila" or "The Eagle" ran cargo between Puerto Cortes, Honduras and San Andres Island. This freighter originally sank in 1989 around the Utila Keys, Bay Islands, Honduras. It was then salvaged and brought to Roatan by Anthony's Key Resort in 1997 and sank in 100' of water for a great Bay Islands dive highlight.
Type: 300ft. multi-level ship
Depth: 112 feet
Max Depth: 120 feet
Min Depth: 40 feet
Sunk in: 2002
Skill: Wreck diver certification is recommended
Location: North coast of Roatan, a 12-minute boat ride from AKR
The sinking of the 300-foot Odyssey off the north coast of Roatan was hailed by dive enthusiasts as one of the Caribbean’s largest shipwrecks. The wreck adds more scuba diving opportunities to the island, bacause in order to fully view the multi-level ship, which measures 85 feet from keel to mast and 300 feet from bow to stern, would take a few dives.
From AKR, a 12-minute boat ride east finds the Odyssey resting on a sandy flat. Divers may follow the top of the mast at 40 feet and descend to the top of the bow at 70 feet. Then explore the bulwarks or cargo hole level at 80 feet, the bow at 107 feet and the stern at 120 feet.
“The enormity of the Odyssey is overwhelming,” says Samir Galindo, General Manager of AKR. “There is ample opportunity to return again and again to the ship and still not see it all. Better still, up to three Roatan dive boats can dive the site at the same time without divers ever getting in each others path.” In addition the ship’s size allows divers of different levels to explore the wreck safely.
Roatan Shark Dives
Dive with sharks on a beautiful site on Roatan's south side in about 70-80 feet of water. You can expect to see anywhere from 8-12 Caribbean Reef Sharks at one time. This dive is a relaxed observational dive and not a typical frenzy seen on shark dives in other areas of the world. Minimum of 8 and maximum of 15 divers per dive.
