Perhaps no island offers more distinctive or easily accessible Caribbean diving sites than Roatan.
Many of Roatan’s dive sites are located within a short boat ride from Anthony’s Key Resort – in fact some are just a short swim from the beach of Anthony’s Key. With approximately 30 dive sites located from West Bay in the south to Man of War Cay, Anthony’s Key Resort is conveniently located in the middle.
The island’s reefs and drop-offs are teeming with colorful marine life and are ideally suited for novices and experts alike. Surrounded by the longest barrier reef in the hemisphere, Roatan’s diving sites offer everything from hard-core wrecks and deep fissures to peaceful eel gardens and shallow terraces where countless macro photo opportunities abound.
Coral grows thickly on walls that begin in crystalline waters as shallow as 20 feet below the surface and drop to the purple depths of the Caribbean. Squadrons of eagle ray, schools of brightly colored tropical fish, and the occasional meandering shark are just a few of the Roatan scuba sites that delight divers.
Several large wrecks submerged near the resort, await exploration. With water temperatures averaging 80 degrees or warmer, gentle currents and visibility ranging from 50 to 100 feet, Roatan is a favorite among visitors who prefer their diving colorful, thrilling and unswerving.
