Located in Sandy Bay at Sol y Mar Resort

SCUBA sites are chosen with our guest in mind. The dive school will pick the dive sites based on the interest of each guest or based on the skill level or comfort level of individual divers. Each instructor or Divemaster will take no more than 6 divers at a time on each dive. This makes for a fantastic diving experience in Roatan. If you've never been on a SCUBA ADVENTURE with a small dive operation, brace yourself, because once you do, chances are you'll enjoy the smaller group setting more than diving with larger groups.
