Roatan Events Calendar
2019 World Freediving Championship
The 4th Annual World Outdoor Championship will be held in Roatan, Honduras. Freediving is, without a doubt, a unique sport. It takes an exceptional athlete with both the physical and the mental attributes to perform at the highest level. The sport is demanding and relatively new, so records and new limits are tested and found regularly. The human potential is not fully understood, and Freediving makes that clear each year as new records are made and new boundaries are found.
ANNUAL GARIFUNA FESTIVAL
A central part of the celebrations and formalities include a long march, by foot and boat, all along the bay and into Punta Gorda. The march celebrates both the arrival of the Garifuna and their new-founded freedom as they escaped centuries of slavery under Spanish & British Rule.
LIONFISH HUNTERS WANTED
Fishing laws can be changed to revive overfishing. Pollution can be cleaned up to save our precious seas and oceans. However, once the Lionfish devastates a reef, it may be 100 years or maybe never come back. Roatan must ramp up our efforts as other Caribbean islands have to help eradicate this fish. We simply must create a larger awareness than what the Roatan Marine Park and Jack Mitchell has accomplished so far.
ROATAN FISHING TOURNAMENT
Roatan's International Tournament has grown in popularity and prestige. It's grown in popularity because it is a catch and release tournament which has proven to yield large catches year over year as fish have the opportunity to grow older and large over the years. The tournament has grown in prestige through an ongoing relationship with the IGFA, Billfish Foundation.
Roatan Electronic Experience Festival
Big French Key will host this year's Annual Electronic Music Festival. You will experience continuous music from sunset to sunrise, delivered by some of the most prominent regional DJs and headlining international guest DJs.
Roatan Freediving Competition
Just a few swim strokes away from white sandy beaches you'll find deep blue waters and a few athletes who test their limits agains the oceans deptsh. Join us this year as we support athletes from all over the world push the limits of human endurance.
ANNUAL PIRATES CUP
It’s GOLF Time! The PIER Annual PIRATES CUP GOLF TOURNAMENT has been scheduled for the 19th-21st of April. The students of Roatan benefit from this - our major fundraiser of the year - and you’ll have a fabulous time enjoying the company of other golfers on a breathtaking golf course.
Motofest brings together well over 300 motorcycles from all over Central America. There are high hopes for this year's event, and some speculate it will be the largest Roatan has ever seen. Motorcycles will get to the island via the Galaxy Ferry. These motorcycles will come from Panama, Costa Rica, Mexico, Belize, El Salvador, and from our very own Honduras.
