AKR’s modern fleet of seven custom Pro 42 dive boats and four custom Pro 48s whisks divers to 35 varied sites located just 5 to 30 minutes away. Unrivaled in the Caribbean region, the AKR fleet was designed for comfort and safety, with convenience an added bonus.
With 44 customized tank racks and a walk-through transom, the Pro 42s can accommodate up to 15 divers and two crew. The Pro 42, with a deep-V in the front, is a fast, sea-worthy, and versatile boat with the ability to tackle rough seas and at the same time reach remote shallow reefs. Each boat is equipped with dry storage, a fresh water rinse tank for cameras, a cooler with drinking water, and a covered area.
The Pro 48s can comfortably accommodate 24 divers and two crew. The 48s have sixty-four customized tank racks, a walk-through transom and opening steps to the bow. An additional 100 square feet on the fly-bridge and added dry storage compartments, create plenty of space to gear up and walk around the boat. Each boat is also equipped with a fresh water rinse tank for cameras, a cooler with drinking water, bathroom and covered area.
Our 51' flat-top snorkel boat can accommodate up to 25 snorkelers. It is equipped with dry storage, a fresh water rinse tank for cameras, air tank storage, a cooler with drinking water, bathroom and covered area.
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. 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.
Flashlights are available for rent through the photo shop to enhance your night vision.

"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.

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.
This wreck provides visitors to the island numerous Roatan scuba diving opportunities to fully view the multi-level ship, which measures 85 feet from keel to mast and 300 feet from bow to stern.
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.
AKR guest and visitors may now dive with sharks. The dive is done at a beautiful site on Roatan's south side at about 70-80 feet and one 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.
